It's at Stratford Racecourse. A very good venue :D Sadly, they won't let us race around the track!

The Aux. belt you need is a 6PK1625. If Vince brings one we can do a change on the spot. Once you understand how the tensioner works, it's easy!

This is on the 30th of Aug? In which case I might not be able to make this one :(
Will be able to tell nearer the time.

Would someone be willing to bring a sphere tester? My fronts are getting on 3 or 4 years old now so I'd just like to check to see how they are :D

Dudes....the plan is no more, I cant make it :x

I wouldnt mind usually but i have to take my wife and kids to her sisters celebration birthday BBQ......Normally that would sit ok i guess but i dont like the woman, so spending a day in her presence really gets my back up....Needless to say i will be thinking about what i will be missing all day.

Im sure the show will be amazing and i will miss plenty :cry:

I like her even less now :lol:

Cloning could be a mistake.

Who wants a second sister-in-law like that?

That's a real shame Vince :cry:

Still, it's important to keep the SWMBOs happy and giving up one rally for a bbq can reap rich rewards in the long-run..

And remember an unhappy SWMBO can lead to an exponentional rise in your own unhappiness. Luckily it works the other way around too.. :D

I agree that cloning is not a good idea although I reckon you meant cloning Vince Kev. I nice idea but can you imagine the confusion all thoses Vinces posting on the forum all at the same time would cause and by the laws of supply and demand, the value of dark blue Xantia VSXs would rocket!

Against that, every branch of GSF could thave their own Vince and that would be excellent!

I'm going to try to make this one. As long as I don't get heckled for bringing a Vauxhall :lol:. In its defence it is a V6 though! RWD at that too! :D

Its misfiring at the moment and undrivable but hopefully once payday comes 26th I can sort it out in time. Would pop on up on the Sunday

It'll be great to see you there Toby :D 'Bout time we met!

And no worries on the Vauxhall. It has a V6 so that makes it good and 8)
