Hi Alan, I've finally got the Mk III back from Dave and Nigel at Davron and it's driving like a treat, I'm really pleased with it despite my wallet being lightened slightly;y more than I expected

Will our sponsors be popping corks? ................. and if so, where and when? Replies eagerly awaited. In the end I had a lead free re-build of the cylinder head, work on the front suspension and steering and loads of other small bits and it's a vast improvement. I spent Sunday polishing and cleaning and am fired-up and looking forward to Le Mans Classic now. As for meeting up I do hope the club has a tent or awning or something we can use a focal point, as for infield parking I have no idea and anyway I am staying with a group of friends in a chÃ¢teau some 20km outside the Le Mans so I'll probably wind up parking in Blue or Blanc. I want to try to take an early evening drive to La-Chartre-sur-Loir and park up outside the HÃ´tel de France and have a beer in the square soaking up the atmosphere but not sure when, maybe Sunday evening? I also have a friend who's just bought a farmhouse near Le Mans and he wants me to see that so it's going to be a busy weekend, like always I'll wish i was staying in Sarthe longer. Oh and have you seen the illuminations in the medieval part of Le Mans town? They are a "must see" if you've never done it. It's very atmospheric as they light up the castle walls and cathedral with ghostly moving images.
Still burning hydrocarbons just for fun!
