That pass was good!  I'll come.  Too far for a Scootacar I'm afraid by road.

If it'd dry then the KR'll suffice.  Maybe even my Mk3 Regal.

I forgot about the Regal! I have never seen an early reliant at the event before, it would go down a storm! I was thinking of trailering the Inter there as it still wont be registered by then, I guess you could do the same with the scootacar? Are you going to the National  Perry?

I can't speak for Perry but I'll certainly be at the National, any good samaritan want to offer me a ride on the run out?

Yep deffo at the National. Bet it rains!  Hoping to trailer kr there. Seems to be behaving itself the last 5 mins!  Should be a good event. (mike, no promises but if my mate's not coming with then i'll have a space in the kr and my normal car up (down!) there. Got one more micheline for me perchance?!...

Cheers Perry, though I'll be driving myself there Friday maybe Saturday, worst comes to the worst I'll have to sit in a field all day Saturday or join the convoy in my Yaris  :-\. I thought you'd have found another michelin by now, unfortunately I'm keeping the others.  ;)

 I'd offer, but alas my loan vehicle is only the single-seat version.....

Hi

Not sure if my mate Jon is coming to the national with me.

If he cries off due to family comitments you are welcome to a lift, and this time I will try to get around the whole run

Cheers John, what happened last time? Your heinkel seemed in good shape at Jeans.

This all sounds promising, I was looking for a ride with someone for the run myself. Never been in a Hondaienkel or Perry's pocket rocket!

OOOOO!  Stuart, you little teaser!!! Now are we talking about a P50 or a shopping basket sporting trident? or even a Mopetta with perspex top?

Hi

The engine cooked up after about 15 miles.

I had bought the car with a duff head-gasket, but it hadn't shown up before because I never went more than about 5 miles in it before the rally.

Better luck on this event.

Hi

I will be on my lonesome at the rally, so unless I get a better offer ;) I will have 1 spare place for the road run.

I am going to arrive Friday early evening as I will have to do at least some work on the Friday.

See you all then
