  1. Some pix from Saturday! The track shot of my S1 was taken by Practical Classics Mag ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป @Fridge @LJR @Dan E @jonroberts
  2. Great to meet you too Lucas and delighted you made it home! Did it turn out to be the handbrake then?!
  3. What an absolutely fantastic day! Massive massive thanks to Bibs for literally everything - it was slick and super fun from start to finish - I can only apologise again for bringing the wrong car - Iโ€™ll get it right next time - promise! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿš—๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐ŸŽ‰
  4. Have arrived and she didnโ€™t miss a beat on the journey up!๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  5. Just gonna leave this here ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  6. Happy Fridays folks! Now, with the factory gates opening at 7.30am and instructions to be on site for 9, does anyone have an idea of what time the Dunston crew will be setting off? I only ask as Jon Roberts is planning on meeting us at the Hall on Saturday morning to join the convoy.....
  7. Rather conveniently, I have some friends who live just up the road from Hethel, so Iโ€™m hoping I can stay with them, thus avoiding any possiblilities for giddiness!
  8. Count me in please Bibs...... .......but, for the record, I donโ€™t plan on getting giddy this time @Dan E and @Sparky @Barrykearley ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿท
  9. Personally, I feel robbed ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š
  10. Well, I picked up my copy today and Sparky, you won the group test!!! I was a close second and Dan, you came in third ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  11. I still blame it on being a school night and getting over excited๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿบ๐Ÿท
  12. I just got a tad giddy and excited cause it was a Monday night! Apols chaps!๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿท๐Ÿบ
  13. In the off chance this gets moved past the 15th, then my S1 would be back in play, work permitting ๐Ÿ˜Š
  14. Hi Adam - I'm afraid I definitely won't be able to offer my S1 annoyingly - having spoken again with my mechanic, he's advised not to do any real driving in it until the carbs (and oil leak!) are sorted + I can't do Wednesday anyways. If you ever need a pristine original white and tartan S1 in the future though, do please drop me a line - normally more than happy to offer up my cars to magazines. Hope the shoot goes well
  15. Thanks Bibs - in which case Iโ€™m not sure my car will be fit for purpose but Iโ€™ll see what Adam has to say - enjoy Poland!
  16. Iโ€™ve DMed Bibs to get more info on what the mag is after to see if my S1 would be up to the job before it gets serviced! Waiting to hear back ๐Ÿ˜Š
  17. Would love to but mine is having its carbs rebalanced on June 12th as itโ€™s running very rich and I darenโ€™t drive it far until theyโ€™re sorted - unless they fancy doing it Cambridge way?! Or if the shoot gets postponed Iโ€™d be totally up for it - any chance of that?!
  18. Itโ€™s going to my specialist in a couple of weeks but I think/hope itโ€™s the oil filler cap seal which has hardened. The car was fine on Tuesday - after a 30 min drive it hadnโ€™t leaked any more oil. Fingers crossed!
  19. Love this picture from the weekend ๐Ÿ˜
  20. Had the car for 4 years and never had an oil issue before and the cap was tight and secure when I undid it
  21. Firstly, I have zero mechanical knowledge so bear with me folks! So, I spent a great day at Duxford yesterday which involved a 2 hour round trip and the S1 didnโ€™t miss a beat. But when I got home and took the engine cover off, I found the nearside rear quarter of the inside foam damp with oil residue and some of the foam seemingly scorched (pic1). There is also a very fine film of oil around the base of the filler cap (pic2) and running a couple of inches along the cam cover. I left the car overnight and there isnโ€™t a drop on the ground under the engine today, the dipstick shows max and the car started without any issues. Clearly it needs addressing but Iโ€™m hoping the car is safe to do a 30 minute drive tomorrow to my specialist - am I mad?! Any help/advice greatly appreciated.
  22. We had a great day - thank you Martyn and thanks for squeezing me in with the Elans! Hereโ€™s Jonโ€™s beautiful orange S1 and mine just before heading home๐Ÿ˜Šโ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธ
