No it isn't.

The only previous history my car has was being used as a tax dodge in building my local Toyota garage. It then rotted for a couple of years behind the garage before I bought it and then developed it over the next 20 years (first sprinting, then Super Road Saloons, then Mod Prods and now Classic Thunder).

Denis Bassom uses his Corolla from the championship in CT but he has chucked a massive amount of mods at the car as has Joss Roncetti and talking of which do not forget the Lotus Sunbeam contingency, I think we had 8 of em out at one stage and the Rover SDi's of Ray of Rovertec and his mates (he married Tom Walkinshaws daughter, I went to the reception on the way to Mallory!) and Ellis Bergman's Camaro it was like V8 City!

One of the reasons for the massive Capri contingency was we also started the Capri Challenge which was then amalgamated into the main championship, Dave Fuller's was unique by the fact that it ran a 2.4 Holbay Pinto engine and certainly surprised a few V6's.

Al, My memory tells me it was first known as the Tru Seal Mod Prods Championship.My Capri then owned by Steve "Twin Cam Tommy" Thomas raced in it from the first season

Hi Adrian and welcome to 10/10ths my good friend, now Peter Mallet will at last have someone to talk Capris with! You are right of course it did start off as that but very quickly became Budget-Rent-a-Car due to Mr. Sheridan's connections bringing in the sponsorship. The Falken sponsorship came in later post Brian thanks to an approach via the importing agents and very good package it was as well, where have all these deals gone and why do a company like Falken decide they want to back a ruddy golf tournament instead of a race championship which must be where their core business lies? I do know some of the answers to that infact but it would be bit too controversal to publish here. BTW I will say it was definitely not for the reason that appeared in one of the motoring mags interviewing our Neil as that was a load of bunkum and way off the mark.

What colour was that gold ?

Blimey I'd completely forgotten about that 'Truseal Mod Prods'. I first saw them down at Lydden, I think I've still got the program

Now from what I can remember the Britnell brothers were racing their Mk2 RS2000s and Andy Pyke had his Mk1 Mexico. I even think Ellis Bergman might have been racing ? Plus there was a orange Sunbeam Lotus, but I don't remember his name, I think I was probably still going to school when these cars raced.

That must mean your mum and I either have respect for you or think that you are still a child

If you get a copy of last weeks Autosport you can see a photo of brother David leading the pack in his M.G. Midget

And you may have remembered a red Chevrolet Monza Spyder V8 driven hard into the bank and totalled by moi at the same meeting. That thing had a twist in the chassis and just would not turn right preferring to go straight on which it did at the end of the start finish straight! Such a shame never seen one raced over here before or after and so much potential in car the size of Vauxhall Coupe yet fitted with a 5.7 V8.

Its an age thing obviously then, you, my mum . by the way Big Al calls me "Mick" but always write "Mike" again an age thing
can you guys suggest which class would be good for the Min as i am out of touch now. i have the option to go 1275 up to 1460 but may not fit all the regs as car is still as raced in falken spec (but no engine).

1275cc + 60 thou would be legal for most historic stuff dunno about the arches though or go all out and race it in one of the specials like Classic Thunder and Dunlop Motorsport News championship.
