Iain beat me to it, I was going to post a pic of the same car but can't work out how to do it on a mobile.

A day of 2 halves...dry & hot this morning and howling wind & rain this afternoon. Just practice sessions today, qual + 2 races tomorrow and another 2 on Sunday, weather now set fair for the weekend. The Gemini is going well but keeps leaping out of 2nd, unfortunately that is probably the most vital gear round here so having to hold it in all the time. There's a great selection of FJs, not much duplication of marques unlike my last visit when we had 5 Gemini mk2s on the grids, this time I'm on my own. Best looker is the one-off Jocko Special, it's got something of an Indycar look to it. I'll post a pic when I can work out how!

There is also a thread here at ten/tenths regarding "Anglia Breadvans". Some pics and history of various (Anglia Fastback / Breadvan) cars.

https://tentenths.com/forum/showthread.php?t=107169


Some info and a pic of what looks like the #105 car here: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/F...a_Race_car.jpg
Referred to as a replica of a 60's car that ran a Corvette engine! (The replica doesnt)

I remember them in period when I was racing a straight forward Anglia twincam here in the north.
I'm fairly sure one was raced by Frank Radisicz - Paul's dad, I believe.

Will try and keep this short . Yesterday official looking guy turns up on a golf type buggy and asked what was my car number . This was after practice . Thought , not all ready in trouble . . Anyway move on and we start chatting .” The locals do a lot of this “. He is an ex C of the C and his job is like a bit of a go between with competitor and the stewards . So if you have done something wrong on track or not happy with another driver you seek this guy out and he will try and sort before it all goes up stairs . Vice verser if stewards say you have done something wrong he will come and find you . You can appeal with him using the correct paper work and it will then go forward from there . Hope this makes some in the way I have written . He ended up giving me a lift to fuel station with cans and we chatted more with him saying he likes to suppprt the driver in a situation unless they are a complete dip stick .

After Mikes “get a grip “remark I stuck the car on front row . Much better now so I changed gears as well .Race was ok . Messed up start and dropped to 5 th . Got back up to 3 rd and gearbox side plate cracked so crown wheel came away from pinion and sure did make a horrible noise . Striped gearbox apart and with some help welding up the side plate she is all back together . Fingers crossed for tomorrow . .

Funny old day today, quite hot, no wind thank goodness, qual 16 and finished 9th but a red flag and restart after 2 laps left 3 cars on the grid unable to start due to heat, bit of a shambles really but made a better start 2nd time around which did me a favour, and had a good dice with an Elva swopping places a couple of times. In race 2 a blinding start (from 15th on the grid???) but couldn't sustain it, finishing a lonely 14th.

As we were getting ready to qualify I noticed a small puddle under the car, looked like oil but smelt like fuel. Lines/unions all ok so while scratching head noticed a drip from one of the pannier tanks which are the original alloy jobs but now with bag tanks inside. Pumped all the fuel out and with the aid of mole grips and lots of cable ties managed to stem the flow so now operating on one tank which is fine so long as it doesn't spring a leak as well. You can never seem to do this sort of exercise without getting drenched in fuel but fortunately didn't self-combust on start up😁 This drama was perfectly timed so I could join the pack just as they left the assembly area, but the real excitement was later on when a rogue umbrella slowly cartwheeled across the circuit chased by a large pick up, I managed to avoid contact with both but it was a close thing!
