For those not going to the International meeting in Cermany or the Dijon SRT meeting that weekend, We have a SIMCA, MATRA, Talbot stand at Practical Performance Car magazine's event at Mallory Park circuit (Leicestershire) on Saturday 19th May. Lots to see and chance to try your car out on 15 minute sessions on the Malloty track or in an autorest. Details on website www.ppcmag.co.uk Advance Tickets available from ......... me.............Mick Ward @£13.50 per person, including entry for your car on to our club stand in the central paddock area (quite a saving over Mallory's on the day £20) also track time 15 minute slots @ £20 and Autotest entries @ £10.
We managed probably a first in the Uk.... 4 SIMCA 1000s out on the track at a UK event. Despite the drizzly weather a bit of mechanical damage members there had great fun. My Honda powered 1000 let me down on the first session... the known weak link... a SIMCA 1000 driven plate inside a Honda CRX clutch let go...hence no forward progress. Phil Hart had his racing Rallye 2 there along with Daniel Burrowes' german Youngtimer racing Rallye 2. (picture above). Philippe Vanderbist also took his (ex Kev Ward) Rallye 3 replica on the track. Unfortunately, after several track sessions the clutch cried enough... and he had driven it there..!!! Mick
