  1. Were the expiry dates not extended last year. Pete Richards
  2. George Howard-Chapell is indeed a motorsport guru and also raced a Lotus in the 750MC Roadsports Series. Pete Richards
  3. Believe it's still 13 inch wheels until next year.
  4. I've got carbs with both types of float but have always preferred the brass type. I had one of a pair develop a leak as yours have and I did a search on ebay and managed to find a new old stock one from Italy which including postage was a lot less than I could get one in the UK. A further composite type is available from Australia and this is to the brass type pattern but the float is the same dimensions but of vacuum formed plastic. A pair of these worked out cheaper than a single Weber plastic type including postage. I set them as the brass floats and they worked fine. Pete Richards
  5. Like you John I've been a Guardian reader for years. For some reason, I can't rememberwhy, I also read the Sunday Times and as you say it can be best described as the House Journal of the Tory party. On reading the said article my feelings were the same as yours in respect of the dereliction of duty by the current government, in particular the lack of action by the PM at the start of the crisis. Pete Richards
  6. Show early interest and you never know. Pete Richards
  7. Contrary to previous comments I've had good results with Continental on my Porsche Cayman daily. They are 40 series on 18 inch rims and out here in the Cambridgeshire fens where the roads can be best described as tracks the ride is fine. Check out Tyreleader for availability and prices as the are showing your size for between £80 - £90 delivered. Pete Richards
  8. Can't say it went well as on the second lap of the first race I lost it at the chicane and ended up on my roof in the gravel trap. I was trapped for what seemed ages, but I'm sure it wasn't, before being released by the marshals and medical team. A quick check over at the medical centre indicated slightly raised blood pressure but as the Doctor said not surprising as I'd just rolled my car. Car was delivered back by the recovery crew and looked a bit sorry with damage to the front spoiler and the passenger door loose inside the cockpit. With help from other competitors and their friends the
  9. Been away for some time but have been watching. All seems to have settled down with the Triumph clubs so I've decided to post again. If anyone's interested I've decided to take a trip north of the border and have entered the above event. Have always wanted to race at Knockhill since doing a track evening with the Imp Club several years ago. Unfortunately any memories from that are void as this meeting is using the track the other way round. Not been used that way very often so I should not be at too much of a disadvantage. Anyone fancy coming along please call in for a chat. Pete Ric
  10. Worth giving them a ring. I've always found them to be very helpful.. I've got pairs of them on both my racing Clans and have had no problems with them, Pete Richards p.s. Debating whether to leave ST as it has little interest for me now as it has become a mainly Triumph forum.
  11. Link to website of new motorsport club for those interested in competing in 'club' racing www.cmmotorsportclub.com Pete Richards
  12. Find it difficult to believe Mark fitted in a Spitfire let alone raced it in the 750MC RoadsSports back in the 70's and 80's. I prefer to completely build my engines on the bench and then fit a perspex plate being the outer shape of the manifold gasket along with stud holes only. Serves the same purpose by preventing bits falling in the ports and a lot easier than leaning over an engine bay. Pete Richards
  13. One thing to check is what tyres are allowed for class you compete in. Also, check what other people are using. Pete Richards
  14. I ran in a support race to the 6 hours a couple of years ago. Agree with it being a superb meeting but too expensive as a competitor. Pete Richards
  15. John, I've got quite a few spare connectors minus pins. I believe I've got both four and two pin. I think a lot of the sensors are the same as used by the Pi System 2 so I can let you know how many pins there are for each sensor if needed. Pete
