Pattern spotting.


The main difference is that the last 2 pics were separated by a fire in the engine area and a red flag that allowed the fire response vehicle to attend (via a very practical short cut).

One of the most puzzling thing about the Historic Racing scene is that almost without exception whenever there is an incident of some sort there seems to be a Jeff Bloxham about.


I can't help but conclude there are clones available.


The Datsun looked fantastic through the lens. I don't doubt it was equally good seen up close in the metal.

Preferably pointing in the right direction! and yes it did look good in the flesh. I thoroughly enjoyed the spectacle at Anglesey and there was a reasonable turn out on the spectator banks particularly on Sunday. Given the remote location I think the HSCC grids were pretty impressive, well done to all.

I spent the weekend at the CSCC Anglesey meeting . My first visit - and it has leaped to being my second favorite UK track . Cadwell will always be first , but I loved the combination of gradients, very fast sections and technical sections - and even better was the absence of debris fencing and the ability to circumnavigate the whole circuit . And that's before I get started on the stunning views.

Great racing too.

Glad you enjoyed the CSCC weekend. I raced in the Magnificent 7s and had a great time. The track has always been awesome but since i was last there in 2016 the Paddock facilities are improved with new shower and loo blocks, plenty of hook up power points and we had a really good meal for 8.50 in the cafe on the saturday evening.

I think this weekend must rank as the busiest weekend Anglesey has ever had. Something like 250 cars entered on each day!!

Good to see you there Andy - apart from our (newly refurbished) clutch destroying itself after less than 8 laps in qualy we had a good weekend, too - Anglesey is certainly one of my favourite circuits.



Just done a quick check of the TSL timing sheets and there were actually 198 cars that took the track for qualifying - I think a few had "failed to proceed" after testing on Friday

Ah, I saw that the car had disappeared when following Live Timing. Wondered what might have happened.

Sorry to hear that - ironically your clutch issues will get a mention in my race report as I spoke to your co driver before Sat qualifying . Great car - hope you get it sorted soon . Report will be on CSCC website next week/ten days - as Silverstone Classic now looms

Clutch now stripped out and wierdly all the friction material on the flywheel side of the driven plate has gone - just the rivets remain - but pressure plate side intact. Never seen anything like it........

Good to see you too, and thanks for your help! Certainly strange about the clutch, hope it can be sorted.

That certainly sounds odd. Manufacturing/Material problem presumably?


Material residue anywhere?


Could some sort of strange vibration effect break up the friction surface?

Lots of powdery debris inside the clutch housing, apparently, but no big lumps. Clutch had felt fine for loading onto trailer and manouevering in paddock - but apparently started slipping almost as soon as went out in qualy. Going back to suppiers, of course, but speaking to others at Anglesey they are a well though of firm that others have used with no issues, so maybe just a duff batch of material.....we'll see.

Hopefully a 'well thought of firm' is the sort of company who will do a free replacement at no charge ('as a show of goodwill, no admission of liability etc.etc).
