    @geoff pine absolutely gutted to hear of your news Geoff. We ended up moving to Liverpool just over 12 years ago and we still have the R but it’s in dire need of major TLC.

    Can't think of anything to say other than that really Geoff :frowning:

    You've been around on here as long as me which is nearly half of my life, that's a scary thought :fearscream: I still haven't forgotten the time you sent me a full set of valve stem oil seals when I was building my stroker engine with not many days to go before I was racing it at Castle Combe :sunglasses:

    Don't know how often you'll come on here now you've sold your car but all the best for the future ;)

    My rally car is needing service work ready for the next rally, after the corona virus has broken... New front discs and pads (ready to bolt on, 280mm and DS2500, new rear pads (wilwood's own 4 pot jobs) oil change (mobil 1 motorsport/filter) and a general check over. Then ready to rock, again.

    I washed it in the garage, tutted at the lack of work I've done on it, peaked at the engine and huffed and puffed.

    Scratched my head, had a little sulk, realised its been garage bound for 6 years, cried a little, then went back inside to play WARZONE!

    Removed the cover from Mine with a View to returning it the the Road after a Long Hibernation and Putting it up for Sale, not really sure what the Markets going to be like for the foreseeable future and once i get back behind the wheel my decision could alter but i've got a Few to Many Cars at the Moment and cant Drive them All !
