  1. Hi All

    Not had a minute to myself this year due to work :thumbsup: and not been out in my Esprit since Christmas...!:santa:

    Hope to get back into the swing of things soon :cheers: but really need some help first...! :sofa:

    If any of you have an Elan Sprint circa 1972, I would really appreceiate some photo's of the rear edge of the bonnet where the latches locate.

    Please pm me if you can help out and I will send you my email address.:)

    Many thanks in advance...!

  2. Sorry to hear your sad news Tony...

    A lot of years ago I had a friend who hung himself,from the outside looking in everything looked rosy. It was only later that we found out that his wife

    (Whom I knew from school) had been pushing him to work more and more so she could live the high life. The only funeral I have been to and it was so

    distressing,nobody could look anyone else in the eye,and the strangest thing was a car he had painted for me and I had sold drove past as I turned into

    the crematorium....

    More recently another friend did the same as a result of gambling debts,a mere £4000 for a life... He said nothing and then it was too late.

    I feel for everybody concerned...

  3. Nice V8 outside the garage,reg plate TONI P. Narrows it down a bit....! Some other nice cars in the workshop including Elan 2+2,Europa and lovely S1 in

  4. John,Yes Travis was a motocross rider and I think really made his name competing in the X-Game events. He competes for Subaru USA in the rallying too.

    His co-driver on the event in Scotland was none other than Colins old partner Derek Ringer, who I know from my days on the WRC with Mitsubishi.

    Toby,Not sure which Karl you mean,but I remember we had a few extra hands on deck for that rally! Cars were being run by Bill Gwynne Motorsport and are

    part of a private collection owned by a chap called Steve Rimmer. He's English but has lived in America for many years.

    The two Escorts,amongst others, featured at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2008.

  5. Nice one Mat...!

    I looked after Travis on the 2008 Colin McRae Stages Rally, along with fellow American driver Ken Block.

    Travis is a top bloke, very friendly and enthusiastic!

    He drove the ex Roger Clark "Daily Express" RS1600 Mk1 Escort and finished very well for a first attempt in a RWD car. Not a mark on the car ,although the

    rear screen popped out leaving him a bit chilly for a couple of stages...!

    Team mate Ken managed to roll a £70k "Eaton's Yale" replica RS1800 Mk2 Escort on the pre event test..... It took us a lot of hours to get the car back in

    shape for the start...!

    The car was "wrapped" in Monster Energy Drink/DC Shoes livery for the rally which covered up some rough edges...
