Lee (sorry to be O/T briefly, Si) but I assume that you have seen the thread about a Modsports/ Special Saloon/ Thundersaloon Revival race at Mallory Park on August Bank Holiday Monday on the "Historic Racing Today" forum & elsewhere. I know that you have an Escort - please e-mail the CSCC to register your interest, assuming you are interested?

Andy, other than chatting to you I haven't confirmed that I am interested - who should I email?

Si, e-mail Hugo at the CSCC. If you can give a bit of the history of the car then that would be useful. We have had some very encouraging interest so far, from original car owners, as well as some interest from people with "similar cars". (I have had e-mails from 10 people with originals & 2 or 3 more with cars of a similar ethos). We are looking to start sending invites to the Mallory race out sometime after Race Retro, although I suspect there will be gaps on the grid that we'd like to fill with suitable cars for a while after that. We are hoping for about 18 cars.

There is also a chance of another race for these sorts of cars later in the year, before we sit down & think about what can be done next year.

I seem to have neglected this thread over the last month or so, but in mitigation I have been working on the car quite a lot! Rear end nearly rebuilt, engine nearly serviced, dash made, paintwork in the process of being sorted, wheels acquired so that I can fit List 1B tyres, the list goes on... Pics in a few weeks or so when it looks a little more complete!

I would just like to thank Jeremy Jackson who has provided me with a little more history of the car, by emailing me these photos he took at Donington in 1987 (hope you don't mind me reposting them here, please say if you do!) - the car even has Wendy Wools stickers on the flanks Can you get those anywhere??

Well well, my old Kitten, I bought this car pictured in met grey in 1990. Raced it in the Lynton, Gresham challenges. Raced evey year (full season) until 1997.
I made the rear wing which was a chopped Lotus Espirit rear wing with end plates.
Took lots of weight off the car, lighter wheels, body, etc.
This car lapped at Croft three seconds a lap faster than Clarkson in a Diablo on a track day.
Lapped Knock hill in under one minute.
Happy days.

Small world

Just had a chat with Brian about the car, happy times! Does anybody know of or have any contact with Neil Walker? He is the chap who built it back in the day so it would be nice to say hello - apparently he was a friend of Chris Maries? Any info would be great; Brian might be able to make a race meeting later this year and it would be nice to reunite the car with some of her previous owners.

Si, lovely to hear that you've been able to swap notes about your car's history. It's always nice for enthusiasts to see that.

Have you been able to do any more work on her this year or are you still away on duty?

I've got a new set of wheels for her so I can run List 1Bs, and she is off having a custom stainless manifold and exhaust made up right now - first race at Lydden on 6 April
