In my red Activa this time.

I shall be doing a tech session on Activa hydraulics. We have access to the garage there, complete with ramp...

Although Activa-specific, it will be relevant to any hydraulics...
Looking forward to that Jim, save me a good spot :wink:

Thanks Vince :)

oh why the 18th :cry: :cry: sadly I'm on holiday somewhere in Europe that weekend, whilst I'm sure my holiday will be fun, I will be sad to be missing out on yet another rally. Especially with the hydraulic tech session, which sounds fascinating.

I'll make doubly sure to catch the next one after July though. Don't worry Vince I've not forgotten the pint I owe you. Hope you all have a fantastic time. :D

Well by the sounds of things on here, a few people will be turning up on the Saturday anyway, and its possibly the quieter day for looking around the museum too. So you should have a good day Steve, i hope to be there for late morning, all being well. It will be the furthest the traction has been for a lot of years. It does cruise well at 70 so it shouldn't be too much of a long journey, though it is 206 mile drive.

I think we are sharing the event with another car club. I can't remember what the other cars are now, any one know?

I'll be taking a look at the Fiasco's, I used to sell them when they were new, not a bad car in their day.

Yes, I am. Easy enough to spot as well. Just look for a shiny red Activa...

Me too. I used to have one back along, many years ago now...

Best Ford ever. Changing a clutch was a (mucky) game. No drain plug :twisted:
