just ran my car on the M tech rolling road in westbury and was chatting with him and it got me thinking, would there be any interest in doing a rolling road meet? all it needs is a group of 10 of us and it would cot £30 plus VAT for 3 runs. there are other rolling roads in the area, (tewkesbury/castle combe/cheltenham) Basically im just gauging if there would be any interest from you 'orrible lot in a rolling road day, if so I can organise one for us.

Thanks!

castle combe closer? If we get more interest I can look at a more central location, on another note if you need to stay you can sleep at vards! he loves people

I'd be up for it, but I think I'm banned from vards so as close to home as possible would be ideal.

Wait wait wait.

Yes you spoke to me.

You didn't ask me if anyone could stay here.

Y'know what?

I just spoke to Rich. This means I can presume that he ... I can't even be bothered to do this. My point is;

NO.

Yea I have a 1998 200sx with some mild modification, running at 240bhp due to a boost leak causing massive over fuelling but once sorted it should be back up to around 270 :)

lovely low mileage example too :lol:

Happy out, I've always fancied one of them to be honest, they seem a savage motor, quite classy too.

Cool, we need TEN people to be able to get the price of £30 + vat at M tech (£15 cheaper than normal!) so could we make a list of people that would Defintely interested (date pending) on doing a run, I know the date is the important bit but there isnt much point me getting in contact again with them if I havent got a solid or at least solidish number.

I'll start the ball rolling
(sorry ricky forgot to put numbers in so just edited your post!)

just spoken to paul at circuit motors castle combe, if we get ten runners he will do it for 30 which includes a/f mixture reading, bhp and torque figures. I havent been there but its a fiver cheaper and more central? Got three interested so far need 7 more to book it, i'll be taking a tenner deposit when we have everything booked as if people dont show i have to pay!
