Reading back through my Bo'ness Revival hill climb catalogue from last w/e I note that on page 41 there is a certain.....

Stephanie Withall from Kettering driving car no. 730, a 1000 cc Sauter formula junior

Surely not ? Could it be our very own LEC Stef who lives not far from Kettering and, or did have, a Sauter at last years Silverstone classics.?

Collapso Red UK 'H' plate heading downhill towards Donegal.

I didn't flash because I was 4 up in a rented Seat crap shack.

Safe journeys!

Coincidentally I was driving down Edgar street about that time after stocking up at Wairose. I didn't see the BRG M100 or your NHS ambulance Clive. But you might see me today heading up past you on the A49 :burnout:

Mark, hope you had a safe journey back to Bonnie Scotland ? You wouldn't have seen us yesterday, as we were heading east, on our way to Norfolk for the week! Hoping to get to Hethel ! Thinking about the BRG (LBW) wasn't that one in the Brightwells sale a few months ago?!! Cheers for now, Clive.

Ran into Prof Collier in Natchitoches, Louisiana in his new red machine....

Stopped by for a cup of tea!

Managed a 440M round trip and the AC stayed cool

Norfolk Mustard in Peterculter main street (North Deeside Road) outside the village hall at 10:15 this morning. I think it was an M reg S2, but only caught a glimpse. Unusual because I haven’t seen it before and it’s usually mums with kids and MPVs parked there.

Goblin Works Garage on Quest at 10:33 but blink and you'll miss it. Looks like it's at Croston in Lancs.

I wonder if it suffered the same fate as the Beemer…

Mustard Yellow S2 reg N...LTS - only had a glimpse of it from the back at the traffic lights in Northwood Isle of Wight - looked immaculate from the back - definitely N reg and may have been a personal plate LTS - never seen another Elan on the IOW ! Looks like I'm not as exclusive down here as I thought :lol:

Hi Tony
That’s an interesting spot, there was a NMY one over here a few years ago. The owner was in LEC but I can’t remember his name, think he moved to the States. There’s definitely a Calypso Red SE in Brighstone, lady owner from new and well used and our illustrious ex leader of the Council has a white SE to go with the Morgan he inherited from his father in St Helens.
(Rumour has it there’s one in Wooton Bridge somewhere :shock: but less said about that the better!)
You are not alone...........
