Thruxton Classic - 27th April

So as the Rockingham Classic duly slips down the thread board the Thruxton meeting pops into view - Sunday 27th April is the date for your diaries.....pretty much the usual package with the exception of the Classic and Historic touring cars which sit out this round. So there's the Post Historic,Group 1,Thunder,Austin Healy,FF1600,FF2000,Porsches and Thoroughbred Sportscars, the initial regs that came through do list a certain 'G.Marshall' in a DB4 (the Marsh Plant owned car) for the latter, this coupled with the usual strong grid for Group 1 and another 20+ grid for Classic Thunder should make for an excellent afternoons viewing.......so who's gonna be there

Hmmm. That sounds rather good. Perhaps I ought to pay one of my (these days) irregular visits to my local circuit - I am a BARC member, after all!

Yep, I'm entered and waiting to go. Planning to get there Saturday evening for an early start - Don't like to be rushed..

Hoping Thruxton suits the RX7 better than Rockingham, but don't want to tempt fate.

Thruxton doesn't suit the Golf at all but I'll be there because its my favourite track. Gearbox is currently being rebuilt, if its ready before Saturday we'll run with Quaiffe thingy and proper ratios. Otherwise I'm going to have to put 5sp Golf box of rather unknown quantity in and hope for the best.

CWP lost a tooth on the start line at Rockingham. Golf is being entered for CT at Brands - there was more competitive 'racing' during the CT race at Rockingham for 1600cc cars than there was in the Group One race, maybe I should change championships.

So far so good, I'm with you Stacy - Thruxton suits the Rover far more than Rockingham, really can stretch it's legs, should manage to get into 5th gear on the back straight!
Hey SP I stripped 3 CWP in 2001 season, but put some different oil in the axle and went the whole 2002 season without a hitch, when we took the CWP out a fortnight ago it was in pristine condition if you want the name and number of the supplier send me a pm - I'd rec. this stuff to everyone.

Oh well - just to bring it back up for you SC. We're not gong to be there (Classic Clubmans for those who done't know), goin' "oop noort" to Oulton for some reason. Last race of the day too which is a bugger if you're a southerner like me.
Weather looks to be getting worse as the week goes on, forecast is rain next weekend at the moment.

I'll be there.. marshalling. Rumour was that I might be on chicane, but shall have to see. Hope not to see any of you racers there.

Looking forward to it - some excellent races = apart from the missing Clubmans of course..
