Spen Again should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Very much looking forward to Mallory this weekend, havn't set foot on the circuit since the end of the 93 season when I stopped marshalling.

Just got back from a great day at mallory. Was great to watch all the cars being pushed once the rain went (although the white escort was going very nicely in the wet). The last race was great with ross holding onto the Carlton and Esprit at the start before they gapped him.

The Carlton was awesome to watch and seeing them all out of the (greasy) hairpin at the end was great! The black jag and American coloured manta were particularly lively coming out!

Looking forward to the next one!

Best day's racing all year for me.

It was an excellent day, the cars and warmth of greeting and interest from the drivers was superb, a pleasure to talk to real racing enthusiasts about their (awesome) cars and history, shame the weather was so cold!
The racing really got going after the first demonstartion type race, a good few niggles were being sorted on the cars between races. Lets hope the CSCC come through with more races next year.

That's the plan. Hopefully 4 x double headers if all goes well & enough drivers commit.

Great stuff, thanks for these Dan!!

I can't recall right now, but do your Dad and Uncle still have the car?

Is that Baby Bertha in the first pic at Thruxton?!! i'm wondering what meeting and year that was taken at, because it looks like it's Bob Trotter's and and Nick Oatway's maybe in between Bertha and your dad's car?

Hi Chunterer, Yes my Dad and i are rebuilding the car at the moment , i wont say too much in this thread as i know you commented on my other post in the Mallory super saloons thread.
Regarding the pic its defantly Baby Bertha and Oatway in the Gartrac escort . Your probably right about Bob Trotter in the yellow and blue escort think it had a V8 ? Think my Dad would have been a bit low on horse power that day against those three especially at Thruxton.

Can you please identify the drivers of the two Skodas in the second and other pics?
One of them might be the root of my car.
Graham.
