Sold the turbo and seeing what the C20XE can do!

Near Lincoln

We had one of these back in the early days (2005 i think) and it was where i first got to know everyone.

Its all a good bit of fun and i'm sure if we can make enough numbers then we'll get a mag feature to show just how good turbo's can really be. Other cars most welcome as it also helps to prove the figures of the rollers to an extent.

My plan is to arrange it for the saturday of the first may bank holiday. Then on the saturday night find a local campsite for us all to stop over/have a few beers etc.

I was going for easter but its too cold and many projects wont be completed.

I was thinking of the northampton area for it, nice and central plus just off the M1.

Any suggesstions for any of it?

I will be wanting payment probably by the end of Jan so we can get it booked in. It wont be exactly expensive as it will be power runs only. I'd guess approx £20.

Not sure if places will be limited, but i'd guess 30 cars would be the max, first come first served.

suggested venue: http://www.northamptonmotorsport.com/default.asp?id=16

Suggeseted date?

I like nice quiet girly Minis

Cheltenham, Gloucestershire

Sounds like a fun day out but it clashes with the run to Newquey ....... That really is my milestone as to the first "show" I want to take the misses car to .... for her the only measure of power she is interested in is being able to whoop chavs in Saxos...... much more interested in show n shine .

If it's that weekend then I won't be there :(

Hope you get a mag feature though ... then there would be something worth going to Smiths for ...LOL

Every day is a school day ...........

How fast and how expensive ...... the same question...

I'm definitely interested in coming along and meeting a few of you,

but at the speed my project is progressing I doubt I'll have the turbo engine and run in by then, so power runs will be a big no go for me.
