Probably what it would cost to build...... rarely does one come out whole from a passion project.

Historic Goodwood

My very first trackday and a great way to spend a May bank holiday Monday with some good company from the guys over at DDK

Love the way the car sits. Any wheel rub when driven aggressively?

No sign of wheel rub - whilst my driving style certainly could not be considered as aggressive, the above photo captures almost the exact moment when my wife demanded to be let out of the car and after only one lap??

Bremteks - Off / 930's on

Despite their great trackday performance at Goodwood last weekend, the Bremtek Racing Calipers have now been removed and replaced by 930 calipers which are somewhat more appropriate for 'dual' road & trackday use.











Hopefully will have a dual master cylinder set-up installed later this month.

Twin MC (17mm/20mm AP Racing) pedal-box built by Chris @ Fenn Lane Motorsport (UK) now installed.



Nice high/hard pedal with easy modulation of the 930 calipers which have been set-up with a slight front bias - overall very happy but still need to tidy up the pipes etc.

Chris is presently fabbing up a remote adjuster.

Unfortunately no update as my 72T is currently in storage in the UK whilst my family and I have relocated over 6000 miles away to Singapore - here's my lad saying goodbye before she was parked up



Anyway there's a few things to do in preparation for my next road trip, which will include a blast to the Classic LeMans in 2010, so to keep myself focussed Nick Moss has just 'frosted' my factory 9"+11" Fuchs and I have just procured a nice shiny 'aluminium' ST engine lid to replace the ducktail.





Now how to fill the next 8 months

Smile My old car!!

Martin,

It's been some time since we have talked - actually I lost how to get a hold of you and with new computers and all I just couldn't figure it out but for good reason...
I have been battling brain cancer ever since we talked last so I have been out of touch so to speak. I am on chemo treatments monthly and the doctors are pleased with the results...so more treatments!
It's great you are still improving the car we love so much - good to hear from you and please stay in touch.

Howard

Hi Howard,

Good to hear from you and sorry to find out that you've been ill but it sounds like you're making good progress with your treatment which is great news.

Now I'm based in Singapore, it's amazing how much I'm missing my (your) car , although as you can see (even at this distance) the old girl is still keeping me occupied on ebay collecting parts in preparation for a jaunt around Europe enroute to the Classic Le Mans in July, something I'm really looking forward to

Here's one of your photographs of the 72 t on your front drive - before I started tinkering:



Take care and I'll drop you an email.

Martin

Lovely car Martin. Just interested why you are swapping the ducktail for the alloy lid with no wing?
