thatorangething should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Very good idea, great to see. I have the ex Hibbert/Prior Camaro IROC/Thundersaloon (sister car to Al Weyman's), rebuild very much on the back burner right now though, Would love to see these cars out again. Will have a look at some of the Thundersaloon programmes to see who else should be flushed out!

We are building a MK2 escort based on the Nick Whiting car, that run the GAA V6. The trouble is that we dont have GAA money, so are fitting a twin turbo 24v granada cosworth lump. If its ready, could we enter this?

I'll get on to Cambridge Motorsport and Joe Ward. Would be great to have Baby Bertha out there again after it's run in the Birkett last year.

What happened to all the Skodas, Daf's and converted Sports 2000's that were around in the late 70's?

Stop looking out those programmes and get that orange thing back together!
You have until the summer to make it go!

That's an order!!

Make it so No.1.

The Daf was mentioned on here (ex-Hazelwood then Minshaw), and as far as I can make out, it's being rebuilt now. I asked about it, as the then owner didn't have the time or pennies to rebuild it.

The only Skoda left racing (that I know of) was the one used by Tony Sugden. Fitted with a Cosworth YB Turbo, and still winning up to the point where he finally, totally, absolutely, had to retire. But perhaps, like Status Quo, his "End of the Road Tour" will be the start of another chapter of more racing!

The Sports 2000's that became Hillman Imps? or even one that I remember being painted red, and someone running it as a "Ferrari 308" (didn't look anything like one!)

I'll post a list of cars that would be nice to find....

If anyone wants to add what / who they know, please do.

Rob.

In the top 6 Rob? I recon I would be lucky to not to get in the last 6 with some of the heavy stuff you are proposing coming out. Your call but do you really want all that Formula machinery with flimsy plastic bodies out in the race as they (IMHO) spoilt the scene years ago. Can't you keep it in the style of the original Thunder/special saloons.

Firstly, the DAF is steel bodied.
Probably the fastest thing on the list at the moment is Ric's Calibra.

Remember, to finish first, first you have to finish! Lots of fragile machinery there...

I was more refering towards the F2000 and F5000 chassied cars like the Imps and the Beatle. What is Tony Sugdens Skoda based on because every time I have seen that race it seems to disappear in to the distant.

I think it might of been a 2 litre sports car or possibly a F2 car. I also think that Tony Sugden is now in his 70's!

Yep, it was either a F2 (the old 2.5litre format) or a Formula Atlantic car under the skin if I remember. I'm sure someone will correct us.

It disappeared into the distance when Ric Wood wasn't there to snap at his heels....

And even though Tony's in his 70's, he's still on the ball. You never forget how to ride a bike!!

No, I hadn't just got up. I'd been up about an hour, after a long night's slumber (check previous post...)

What's happening to those other V8 Essencorts being built in your neck of the woods?

We are picking it up from the paintshop next weekend, and are gonna start fitting it up. Engine should be ready inabout 4 weeks. It all depends on parts suppliers(as you should know). The only other problem is running my one whilst trying to get this one ready.
