These guys are spot on and have a 4wd dyno dynamics rolling road which is spot on, done a few shootout's for our local clubs but they might be a bit far for most of you guys...

www.corten-miller.co.uk

Postcode for location is PE22 8NL

Count me in for this.

I did a rolling-road session at Corten-Miller's about three months back and can't recommend him enough. It's about an hours drive from Peterborough Si, t'other side of Boston.

Would people prefer it October, November, December?
I would say November is likely to be favourite with the dyno, but will ask.
I'm down there 2 weeks today and will get some dates then, so any preferences... Say now!

October would be better for me, then I can see how much my engine is putting out before I start changing things :)

early october, ie first couple of weekends could be problematic but after that i will be fine. :)

It's a long old drive to Northampton from Preston Andy, about 160 miles each way! Long way to spectate!

I've done Rochdale to Tewkesbury several times with another forum, once to run, twice to spectate. I just thought it'd be a nice day out, see some cars, chat to a few people :)
