Talking 2018 events

Hi all,

Iv'e dusted my car off and got her ready for 2018, including a great Adrian Flux insurance quote, came in nearly 1/2 the price of previous insurer.

All systems are tested and trial runs around MK undertaken. So good to go.

I have booked up the following:
  1. Brooklands Auto Italia event - 5th May
  2. London to Brighton - Kit and Sport car run - 3rd June

I hope the weather stays good for both these days!

If anyone can make it then it will be good to see you there!

Cheers.

I insured again with Adrian Flux and it was cheaper than last year. 178 for 5k miles on the 250, they did however want 65 for the agreed valuation.
I also insured the Daytona with them and it was again 178 for 5k miles but the agreed valuation was 16.50, go figure!
While I was on the phone I asked them to quote for my son on a Kobra with a 2.2 engine, came out at 660 which I didn't think was too bad for a 21 year old with 2 years NCB.

Would like to do the Brooklands meeting as I'm only 15 minutes away. BUT, one of the power steering pipes on the 250 has burst, the Daytona is up on ramps with dodgy brakes, the wife's car is due an MOT and there is a wiring fault on the SRS that needs sorting and my daughter's car needs new front brake callipers.
No peace for the wicked.
All depends on how hard it is to get the rack of the Z3.

Well I started on the CLK airbag, no problem with any of the underseat connections so had a look at the wiring running along the inside of the sill. Bloody millions of wires, quickly stuffed them all back and have arranged for my Merc indy to come out and have a look. I know when I'm defeated.
Next my daughters MX5, front calliper sticking and it won't retract far enough to be able to fit new pads. Have had to order new discs as well due to the siezed calliper scoring the disc.
Bit of a lunch break and I'll have a look at the steering rack on the Z3, but have to get he ramps out from under the Daytona first.
Doncha just love a relaxing Sunday!

Cool Ready for the London to Brighton Run next weekend.

I have a confirmed start time from Greenwich park of 10:19am 3rd June car number 567.

So took the car out today on a reasonably long run and all is well.

We drove past some massive hangers near Bedford to decided to take some pictures as it was deserted.....

Andy Always a pleasure to see more great photos of your car.

Enjoy the Brighton run.

Cheers, Paul.

PS
Can you PM me this Bedford location, as I might take a trip there when my car gets back from the garage.
