Clear Skies for Revington TR's Open Day 2011

Well, the Sun god smiles on Revington TR’s open day once again. Wall to wall sunshine marked the beginnings of a recipe for a great day and is what we have come to expect. Add to this two, yes two, car park’s full of TR’s; a Bristol, a couple of MG’s and a bunch of TR enthusiasts. Add some tea, coffee, biscuits and a free prize draw. Leave it all to bake in the sunshine for a few hours. Finally, smell the delicious aroma of classic TR’s, admire the finish and dedication put into all of the cars & enjoy the atmosphere among fellow enthusiasts. A successful outcome and a great time was had had by all.

Rally Costa Brava Historic 2011

31st March – 3rd April

This historic regularity rally, open to cars built before 1985, as the name suggests is run in the mountains behind the Costa Brava. The rally is centred at the sea-side town of Lloret de Mar and consists of approximate 900km, 400 of which are competitive. The first stint began up in the mountains on Thursday night through to the early hours of Friday morning. There were further stages on Friday morning followed by a test at Sils Go-Kart circuit, where it was necessary to attempt to drive the circuit at a constant 50kph. However as go-kart circuits are generally very tight, this was all but impossible and the test became a flat-out thrash.
