Hi folks,

I am looking to see if the would be much interest from the folk from around the south centre region ie Glasgow/Edinburgh in a rolling road day a Extreme motorsports in Whitburn.

http://www.extreme-motorsport.co.uk/

I have used them before and have a cracking set-up. I have done a few more mods to my car over the summer and am looking to have it put on the RR and though I'd see if we could make a day of it.

Feel free to fire away questions.

Thanks
Kev

I'd like to get my car on a RR, but I work most Saturdays so may not be able to make an organised event.

I'll keep an eye on the thread in the hope that something gets sorted that I can actually attend.....

I'd be interested to see the t5, I've got a focus st with a few bits done. If we get a bit of interest and if people could say whether a Saturday or sunday suits, we can ask if they will do the preferred day.

I would be interested, but i'm busy every 2nd weekend and i'm working most sundays at present. I was ment to be going to a rr day at Wallace in Aberdeen this Saturday...... but they had double booked us, so it been moved to end of October to a day i can't make.
Once you decide a date, i'll let you know if it suits.

you did, but 100% nothing to do with me - never been in my car, nor have I driven it - Im only the person at the end trying to salvage the situation (I would've stopped to investigate the noise....)

2.5K of gearbox - looks like its scrap!

Glad to see there are a few interested, I was thinking the start of next month. I'll give them a call tomorrow and see what availability they have.

Nah it's still here, a chap is booked on a non return flight to see it though frown

Still want to keep it, but not really going to be used and not much space until I convert the coachhouse into the garage. Fundage will come in handy to replace 10 rotten sash windows too smile

Been on the phone with the RR guys and they can only do Saturday's.

The date I am proposing is Sat 10th of November. The price varies, between 6-12 car is £40 and 12+ is £35, which gives you two power runs with full print out of both runs.

Hope this suit most folk and we can get a good turn out.

Any question just ask,
Kev

Been to them before- nice group of guys!

I may be able to bring my 328i to it- maybe do one run on LPG and one on Petrol for a laugh

will check and see what's happening on that day.

Is this still going ahead?

Not bothered if we make over 12 for the sake of £5 but I would like to get mine on the rollers and 10Th Nov works well for me.

I'm up for going for a rolling road day, took my car to one recently however I had a boost leak due to tear in rubber pipe, got that sorted and want to see how well it does now.
