Colin behind the wheel...!  Mr Rutter, I hope you're up for the challenge - that could hand the co-drivers championship to you dear chap.


I am always up for the challenge lets just hope we have a car that can do more than 20mph this year.

Car change noted for team Radley/Warr - thanks.

The question about whether certain crews should be entered as novice or expert ought to be pretty straightforward.  The current rules on this within CT can be found at http://club.triumph.org.uk/cgi-bin/comps/mxcontent.cgi?pid=70  and the relevant bit is:

"Promotion.  A navigator will move up from Novice to Expert once he or she has had 3 wins within the current class in CT 12 car events, or in similar events with other clubs. A driver will run at whatever class his or her navigator is currently at."

It is left to the entrant to be honest about this as CT organisors have no means, nor wish, to trawl through past results from other clubs.  I have no doubt that all entrants we have now, and had over the years, have been 100% trustworthy in this respect.  I suppose there could be a case for voluntary promotion should the individual want an extra challenge, and that would be fine with me.

I've had 2 enquiries about remaining places and being on the reserve list/running as closing car, but nothing in the post as yet.  So, if anybody still wants to enter and hope for the best (or worst, from the dropping out crew's point of view) send an entry in soon.

I've never touched the front valance on Gertie, so the filler was already there from when you and the other bodger owned it.

Ah, that would be why the filler fell out last Friday, nothing at all to do with the road just disappearing (well it did kind of, it went into a ford) and definitely nothing to do with the marker post for the ford..

We will send you the bill.

Nah, that's a bit further North Steve..........................


Harold: '67 Herald (not) 1200 convertible - some bits still fairly shiny & red some not so shiny, some now the wrong kind of red! Height adjustable at the front by virtue of clever spring seat thingies (and flat tyres) and at the back by virtue of how much cr*p is in the boot

Maude: '66 2000 (for now) in amazingly good nick with mahoosive Webasto sunroof, manual now with o/d and back on the road after 9 year lapse. Much electrickery, Alfa seatery, power steerery, front suspendery (ooer!) & carburettory also now done.

Polish them if you must, but don't stick them on the mantelpiece - drive them (carefully, cos the number of wheels in contact with the black stuff [or the other end of the driveshaft] is liable to change when you least expect it !
