Hi Darren
Just to stop you from wasting your £12, the club was being disbanded after the AGM. However as the website is carrying on I’m sure someone will help

Hi folks.  I've just got a Bulldog with a 1.7 Marina engine.  It's had a wee prang on the front end which has been repaired but I now need to repaint/gel coat the wings and front.  In addition the hood and interior need attention.  I'll be signing up to the club this week and hopefully I'll be able to pick a few brains.

Regards Darren

Hi Tom,

Thanks for your interest.

Its been going really well, I have clocked up about 2.5K miles so far this year driving it to work quite often. I have to be careful now as I took out limited mileage insurance at 3K miles. I think I will need to increase my allowance for next year :)

It is running really well now, it really is starting to purr now having thoroughly blown away all the cobwebs. I have been calculating the mpg as a measure of how the engine is running it seems to be 27 mpg. which seems good to me. I checked all the plugs a few weeks ago they all look perfect, and each very similar now so I am happy. I got the carb dialed in a bit better after I refitted the manifold

Its still a little uneven at start, I think the idle is a bit low at start up, but it settles in after a few mins.
.
It used to be uneven and with smell of unburnt fuel that's all gone now

Regards Jon

We have a plan. Our new, temporary pitch is 76B, almost the same pitch as the last X number of years (old pitch number 76A) so you will all be able to find it easily. I'm pretty sure it is the one  that used to be the Rickman stand, right next to ours on the entrance side. I am attempting to find the whereabouts of the club bunting, flags, posts and signs as at end of the last Stoneleigh show these were taken back to Pilgrim Motorsport and have not been seen since. 

Please be aware that due to the smaller club pitches, the organisers are discouraging camping on them, and that camping on the dedicated camping areas is preferable, so please, if you are camping make use of the dedicated camping area and not the club pitch.

PLEASE ALSO BE AWARE THAT ALL OF THE PILGRIM CLUB SIGNAGE, POSTS, TENT ETC ARE NOT IN MY POSSESSION SO THE CLUB PITCH WILL ONLY HAVE THE KITNET FLAGS, UNLESS PILGRIM MOTORSPORT FIND AND BRING OUR SIGNAGE BACK (Latest news - all the stuff mentioned is being delivered to the club pitch on Friday)

Following from Colin from Kitnet, which was in reply to my email to him.....

Hi Ian.
Yes I had the email. It's good we are still together at least. I have instructed our guys that camping on the pitch will probably be not possible this year. So they are aware about it.
I'm going up on the Friday to keep an eye on it, as well as be there early each day so I can police our pitch for just our members.
We do have a gazebo I will put up for shelter from whatever weather is thrown at us so tell your guys they are welcome to use it. I will also be doing tea & coffee if they would like some.
Regards the signs, if you get no joy I do still have our 2 kitnet.uk flags that I will put up so you can let your guys know to look out for them & just park up with us.
I will probably have to point people out where to park if the pitch is really small so we can get everyone in comfortably.
Hopefully it will be fine & a nice size so there won't be any problems.
See you there Ian. It will be nice to catch up again.
Colin.

Have you checked the Iva book?

You should be able to use anything as long as it passes the relevant tests for the year it was manufactured.
