Re: Dart spitting out dirt from exhaust

I think those provisional dates are likely to be confirmed but probably not until late October to early November if this year is a guide.

We certainly spoke to the organisers at last year’s NEC Classic Motor Show.

2020 SP250 Calendar

Well it’s that time of year again, when I think about the 2020 SP250 calendar. I have had several photos submitted already so this is the final call. If you have any interesting SP photos, particularly in unusual locations or angles, and are happy for us to use them for consideration in the 2020 ver...

Re: V8 Saloon Front Springs

Thanks for that confirmation tjt77 - have never dealt with Martin Robey but know them by reputation.

V8 Saloon Front Springs

I think my earlier post got lost in the forum downtime, although there were a couple of replies. It appears that the two main suppliers of V8 Saloon parts are not supplying the correct front springs. I am assured that the Daimler ones should have six and a half coils compared to seven and a half for...

Re: Recovery services - any good for old cars?

I think RH breakdown cover means that you have to do the organising yourself. If you haven't got a local number to phone you would have to walk to the nearest house or pub and get a recommendation to phone. RH would then cover the cost later. A recovery service is more convenient. I have RH cover a...

Re: SP250 Spa Classic Trip 2019

The initial club booking will be made in the next few days for circuit entry tickets, club parking passes and track laps.

If you are interested and haven’t yet advised me, please let me know by tomorrow, Friday 8/2.

We can make additional bookings up to late March, if needed though.

Thanks
