  1. Wondered if we could get a club stand maybe? I'm down south and manta-less. There is also track time up one of the most well known hills, Jock fancy giving everyone a run for their money ? Could discuss at VBOA MH? https://www.facebook.com/events/308759216285526/367664963728284 http://www.retroridesgathering.com/

  8. Saw a Polar white exclusive hatch coming in Exeter around 4.30ish (sunday) ? just past sainsbury's alphington... anyone on here? I was the one in the blue astra giving a thumbs up. ;)NNN nNic Ni
  9. Maybe a wrap? That's what all the local rally lads down this way seem to be doing, prices have come down a bit.
  10. Nice to see another Manta in the south west area, very rare sight nowadays!
  11. Looking good! Here's an old thread with some history of the car before Simon bought it.
  12. Haha, yep still has it, about time you got rid of your GT3 and bought a manta or two eh! Almost back together now too! engine going in over the next month, , as it stands I could eat my dinner off of the underside, prob cleaner than my kitchen! So that's one Monaco Blue Exclusive at Billing this year! His rebuild thread is here
  13. Ha nice to see Dad's old Red hatch in the line up... think he did over 400K as a daily runner for over a decade! Brings a few memories back...
  14. Good to see ADZ4575 is getting another chance! Saw her out driven by the Crooks last couple years, and boy did she go, driven properly too. Are you planning on restoring to FIA 400 Homoligation Regs in order to use in Historics? Or Clubman/BTRDA? The changes made were that there is no longer a gravel championship for Pre '87 cars with an 'Open Class' formerly the RAC Rally Championship. Although the same organizers have now setup the RAC Historic Tarmac Championship which caters for 'FIA Homologated' 2WD cars upto '92. Here's a photo of her before her accidents last season. Think there is an old thread with history of this car before Simon Crook bought it on here somewhere, will post link when I find it.

There is a rumor that Brooks may be out in ADZ 31 running as course opening car, (like 2011) too! 2 mantas will be out in the mainfield - John Rutter (aka rutthenut) will be out in his V8 Manta, along with Peter Hedges in his 400R. Quite a few other interesting cars and crews entered including two Ferrari 308s , a Ford Anglia Cosworth and Julian Wilkes (2 time BTRDA 1400 Champion) back out in a newly built nova.
