Hi we did the hillclimb there last week ..1st run was pretty ordinary --learning the track --2nd practise run was poor -the Fiat not running good ---got back to paddock and found a brocken collet on no 2 valve- fixed that or so we thought with a picture frame hanger !!! of course that broke too now then- we came up with a brain wave-Pat, my better half suggested using the end off her tweezers---Bingo that did the trick-- but then the durn thing wouldn't start with only a few minutes to go to my run --much cranking with the starting handle and suddenly the engine burst into life ---jumped in --something was not right --hard to get into gear --got it into to gear, let out the clutch ---nuthen something had come adrift --we had to call it a day with only 1 misserable timed run still we got an award for 1st vintage in our class.Will have to wait till I get a bit of time to myself to find out the malladies and fettle them.We did have a great weekend though --staying at an early 17th century hall near to Lotonl on a bed & breakfast basis, making new friends . FTD- TT Humber trophy went toJames Baxter on a1934 Frazer Nash single seater.Fastest vintage saw RobinBaker on a Hispano/Amillcar special(11760 cc's !!!) James Collins won class no7on a Hudson Super 6( year 1917) whilst Mrs Jane Tomlinson won theTidd and Ingham Trophy on her Frazer Nash. all in all a great weekend .
