Gareth Porter was in Mod Prods for a while, Classic Thunder this year. Michael Collins is still racing his Astra - was out in the pre-93s a couple of weeks back.

Most of my results sheets are for the dual valve class, tho your dad does figure occasionally later on as the numbers fell and classes got merged. Are going to keep using the Golf?

if we can find somewhere that it would be competitive then probably, may take a look at pre 93 cos if micks car is eligable then so should ours and my dad was always a fair bit quicker in road saloons so it could be a possibility, at the moment we're concentating on stock hatch with the 205s

Someone is selling their old super road saloon on ebay (or at least was trying to).

Item number 280033795969. An SD1 driven by Neil White?

Al.

Want another IROC-Z Camaro? I know where there's one going for 3500...

I remember Ron's Scavenger. Like Andy Pyke, a Brands or Lydden specialist! We had a couple of them Hillamans from time to time.
The other one that comes to mind was the blue or was it blue-green Ricky Metterick.

Did a blloke called Mike Marlowe have one for a while (was it Field's old car?) before racing a Sunbeam Lotus. I seem to remember a story about a Tiger getting badly pranged somewhere and it came back out once rebuilt driven by someone else?

Bit of a sad tale with that car I think, it was a Sunbeam Talbot not a Tiger and I sold him the Group 2 Rally engine out of my Talbot when I went over to Chevvies after totalling the Sunbeam at Oulton. I am not sure whether it was that car or when in Lotus guise but as I recollect someone was killed in it while driving it, cannot remember the full details.

Mike then bought the ill fated Starion Turbo that has been owned by so many people and crashed by as many. I remember when the guy who built it debutted it at Malory and everyone wanted it, he sold it to Mike, who sold it to Craig Davies, then back to Mike, then to Phil Rowley, then driven by Peter Barnes for Phil and I think it finally ended up with Mr Philpotts (not sure if same car but looked like it). I have followed the thing twice when it took an exit stage left into the barriers and I think everyone who owned it or drove it ended up smashing it! Quick car if you kept it on the black stuff:-)

Ron Field backed his Avenger into the paddock hill armco pretty hard. He wanted my dad to repair it but for some reason didnt do it. (cant remeber properly, i was only about 10 years old!) Someone else repaired it for him but was Ron never totally happy with it again and sold it soon after i think.
