Hi Tim your car looks great, there are also the southern hills to master such as Wiscombe and Gurston, the M5 and M3 should make the journey viable at the right time in the morning/evening. Both venues have road modified classes, are quite laid back and the competition is close.

Hi David

I’m going to try and do Gurston in July.

Have you got A032R on your car? Do you have any clearance issues?

Thanks Steve

2006, 2007 was when I was running it as a 998cc Cooper which is how it left Longbridge, I've since given up trying to keep up with the Imps in the 1000cc class, even with over 100bhp from a 998 it wasn't possible so now running as a 1293cc Cooper S.

I think the 2011 Gold Cup was the year Barrie Williams overtook me through Druids like I was standing still, I didn't see which way he went after that!

Bottom end was basically Mini 7. Head was 12G295 with Cooper S inlets, which required the block pocketing, can’t remember exhaust sizes. Compression over 12:1 which goes through the oil way in the head so that requires re routing. MED scatter cam. Originally ran twin HS4 but they lacked airflow at mid rpm and got a flat spot so moved to DCOE which improved mid range but lost some at the top end.
