Good stuff, will be great to keep Gilbert going. ARDS at Thruxton should be fun too.

Fantastic; a great car. The first time I met Mike was when he had his head buried in the boot of Gilbert casting a critical eye of the fuel tank IIRC.

Great news Iain,well done.I always like it when these cars stay in their own circles,rather than being bought and never used again.
