Mark 8

Post by Iain »

I've finally bought another one.
This Ford engined Hewland gearboxed car was once a lightweight racer, then a heavyweight rallycar, then intermittently dieted back to halfway in between as a sprint and hillclimbing car.
Its now partly restored and I've taken it on, planning to take it back on track with a 1700 all steel crossflow [yet to be found!] and a hewland gearbox.Its sits a bit squiffy at the moment as you'll see below. So I'm going to learn about suspension next...

Congratulations.

That should be pretty quick when it's finished - will it be road legal so you can drive to The Pitstop Cafe for a future gathering?

Its now running. Managed 40+ reliable laps at Mallory which is satisfying.
Now have a revised jobs list before it runs in anger ...
Thanks to Lee of Leicester Photography for the action shot.

Iain, you little tinker! Nice job mate. Good to see you back in a Davrian. How is it for you getting back into one? There is a track day at Lydden towards the end of this month. What's the chances of you doing a few laps?
