That was 1996 I believe. Bloody hell! That's 25 years ago!

Anyway, I'm looking forward to the challenge. Let's hope it's a good turnout.

Steve's just told me he's got the Sprinter back on the road - we can have a Convoy - though I might be going up a few days earlier to see some friends in Edinburgh

Sadly I have had to withdraw from the CSCC Knockhill meeting - working in Devon at the moment and that just about makes it impossible. Annoying but without work I don’t get to play with cars at all!

Sorry about that - I can just about remember when that four-letter word "work" got in my way of living


Could probably work a way of getting your car up there and back if you fancied a fly-drive

Thats kind, Richard, but i have a feeling that achieving the project submission may end up being very difficult and involve long hours so i am not sure that i will have time to get everything together. I may be working away 7 days a week by then. We may also get a short extension which will involve working that weekend, too.

One of my Alfa friends from Dundee has been delighting in regaling me with tales of the difficulties of the anti-clockwise circuit....good job we're slow anyway



No matter - off to Donington this weekend - over 500 cars entered in CSCC on Saturday/Sunday....and apparently nearly 200 with CTCRC on Monday....

Andy, sorry to hear that you are unable to attend. Hopefully the event will be well supported and CSCC will return next year.

Looing forward to meeting 10/10 competitors and spectators.

A super summer spectacle at Knockhill on 6th June, enjoyed by drivers and the crowd of up to 1,000, limited by current restrictions.

Great to see new competitors to SMRC Classics, Paul Bowers - Fiat 128 Coupe,
Nicola Campbell – Fiesta XR2, Niki Dickson – Lotus Cortina, Adam Kinmond - Rover Vitesse,
Oly Mortimer - Ford Fiesta and Philip Russell - BMW E36.

Previous champion, Tommy Gilmartin, won the first race, with John Kinmond in second place, followed by Shonny Paterson, Alasdair Coates and Bruce Mitchell fifth. Sixth placed Alastair Baptie
set a new class ‘A’ record, with the first sub 60 second lap time. Close competition throughout, especially between ninth placed Mortimer in the ex. Steve Uphill Datapost Fiesta evocation and Craig Houston in a Lotus Excel.

John Kinmond won race two, comfortably ahead of Paterson throughout. Bruce Mitchell came third, 0.3 seconds in front of Coates, with Baptie fifth. The next three drivers finished within half a second, in order: Mortimer, Russell, Houston. Six drivers failed to start the race due to mechanical problems.

Where can I find the results from this meeting? They don't show on the TSL Timing site and the SMRC site gives no information as far as I can see.
