  1. For sale on behalf of my mate Justin, who whilst been a club member, isn't too keen on typing out an advert of this size! So he's left it to me..... I know this car well and whilst it's not perfect, (having been used a bit) it's in very good all round condition, with some very nice touches. Westfield SEI wide, part built with the assistance of my father-in-law who just happens to be Mick Cooper of Mickmade fame! One of only two Westfields built in the fabled Mansfield garage which was intended for road use, the other one being “Jans Car” AKA Kermit. The car has MOT until may 2019 And is ready for the summer ahead. The car has only been used on one track day and is set up predominantly for road use. Body/Chassis: Genuine Westfield SEiW chassis in black powdercoat, with bright yellow bodywork including detachable rear arches and cycle wings. (I think there are spare rear wings too somewhere) Older style RAC roll bar which offers protection to the occupant rather than being simply aesthetic Very special pre preg Carbon headlight......just to prove Provence! Engine/Transmission: Vauxhalls proven 2.0L XE engine, with this particular one having the highly sought after “coscast” head. The engine being rebuilt with new water pump, cambelt, Vernier pulleys cams, oil pump, steel rods forged pistons etc in 2016. The head has been lightly ported and retains standard valve sizes and is fitted with QED camshafts, HD rod bolts, and SBD shallow sump. Running a modified distributor, 45 DCOE Weber Carbs purchased new and set up by Northampton Motorsport, and fitted with a new foam air filter, SBD Carbon exhaust system (repackable and very sexy!) the engine shows just under 200bhp on NHM rollers Type 9 gearbox. Interior: Intatrim seats, rails for which come with the car, though not currently fitted. Floor mounted adjustable bias pedal box. VDO Gauges – Speed, Revs, Fuel, Engine Temp, Oil Pressure. Standard switchgear for lights, wipers, washers, heater, horn, indicatindicator All in a carbon dashboard.......cos we can! 4-point harnesses. Full windscreen Sidescreens Soft Bits Surrey top (part roof). Suspension/Wheels: AVO adjustable suspension. Wide track front wishbones M16 front brake callipers Sierra rear calipers Force racing Wheels with polished rims and blue anodised centres, with A048 tyres (wheels are 8” front and rear). It’s a quite reluctant sale and is only happening as I have a classic car and teardrop caravan taking up storage space in my garage, with the Westfield at my son’s house and under threat from him using it! £9500ovno. Tel Justin on 07984 584694 Please no PM's as Justin won't get them!

    Gurston Down attendance

    From some of the comments above there seems to be an inference that the SSOT are Northern biased in there choice of venue, and that Mr Everall wants to cull events. I'm not an active SS competitor and don't know all the members of the SSOT, but if there is genuine concern about a "Northern" bias then can I suggest that "Southern" members put themselves forward to join the SSOT, in the interest of balance. As for Mr E being the harbinger of doom, I suspect it more a question of him appearing to be the most vocal SSOT member on here....... Nice to see debate on this subject and some interesting suggestions...
  4. I wondered that too....

    How will the sticker be applied to the Simpson restraint worn on the back? Can't easily view the back when seated on the start line and if I recall correctly, the only other visible areas are restarint straps.

    21st Party -Hillclimb try and evening dinner

    Graham, Have all the area organisers been briefed on the event and been issued with promotional material? I never spotted anything at our club night last night. From past experience, the key to making these events work is to promote them long before the event (and its close now), and disseminate as much information as possible on the run up to the event. This had the effect of making the event a topic of conversation at area meetings and runs out, continually promoting. I even recall going round Stoneleigh show armed with entry forms and pinning them on anything that was parked up, especially Caterhams, which resulted in a few of them entering!

    21st Party -Hillclimb try and evening dinner

    Not being familiar with the venue doesn't help me here! So the showers are located remote from the camping area and are limited...as in there might be none? Only thinking if my better half comes I will get a load of stick if the showers are not immaculate, and close by!......I would also guess I won't be the only one.

    What are the camping facilities on offer? I assume they are being shipped in for the event.

    21st Party -Hillclimb try and evening dinner

    So having looked at the ticket info, can someone clarify if camping is available for those not taking runs up the hill (Spectators)? Just how much space is available for camping? Never having been to the venue I have no idea!

    Latest IVA emissions proposal

    Looks like they are about to make life difficult for kit car builders who want to use an older engine. See item 4.10 here https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/678209/road-vehicles-improving-air-quality-and-safety.pdf The proposal is that emissions tests at IVA will need to conform to the MOT standard current at the time of testing. So, currently (As i see it) Idle test 03%CO, fast ldle test (2500-3000 rpm) 0.2%CO, hydrocarbons at less than 200PPM and lambda 1, + or - 0.03. Looks like the A series in an 11 will be a challenge! Moderators comment, I wouldn’t normally merge your new thread with the existing one Paul, but this matter is both important and urgent, so it seemed appropriate to try and keep everything together in one place. (Will drop you a PM too.) Dave
