I'll actually show up this time if it's dry, I have a marginally more interesting bike to boot. Not cycling in the rain though, it's a PITA.



(I've just realised my bike's at the train station, looks like I'm off out...)

I was actually in glossop last week with work and found it a totally agreeable place to spend a few days.


Hopefully I am about next week at home, as its only a hour or so from mine. So will pop along if I can.

Sorry I couldn't make it chaps, too much on my plate and not enough time. I actually drove through Glossop, right past the market at 6pm but then had to shoot back to Leeds.

I saw BX (and who I can only assume is strangeangel) parked at Holme moss as passed.

On a slightly different and somewhat unrelated note, if one would hypothetically integrate the Granadaland Greenhouse Gassers with the Northern Powerhouse,

there would be a total of 32 Rover cylinders. And that means, 64 Rover valves and consequently 128 Rover valve keys.


128 Rover valve keys? The mind boggles and the imagination throws bubbles.


This should be pursued further. We are on to something epic here smack in the middle between the Midlands Massive and the SVM.

      FOTU tickets are on sale - it's Grimsthorpe again, hopefully they have some better ideas about queues this year. 
      I'm thinking of trying for concours with the Civic sedan...

      Discussions were had today between myself and @320touring and it was decided we have a goodly number of somewhat fast and comparable cars within the core Scotoshite between his Clio 182, @dome's Kangoo 182, @jaypee's BMW 316i (Honest gov), @Supernaut's 323i and my V70 T6 and we should finally do a race. We have decided on reviving Club GLF (GANNIN LIKE FARK) and we shall be meeting at Crail Raceway for some drag racing.
      This is also an open invitation to all yous who fancy coming and joining us for the day even if it's just for the bantz, plus you'll be just up the road from Anstruther - home of the chippie that's never done winning best chip shop in the UK awards. Deetz below:
      Crail Raceway
      Drag and Drift Thrash
      15th May 2022 (Sunday)
      10am - 4pm
      £10 entry to the track
      £20 to race (No Need to race)
      Helmet required if you reckon you'll crack 100mph on the 1/4 mile. No rentals available even before covid.
      Basic scrutineering will be in force - Battery must be secure, all wheel bolts / nuts present and visible, nothing significant floating about in the car that could become a missile in a crash, no significant fluid leaks... etc etc. Be sensible folks. Don't bring a unMoTable wreck.

      Not sure which page to put this on...
      My stepmum runs a dementia charity, Dementia Support South Lincs. 
      To raise money there's an annual car rally, it's a pleasant canter around South Lincs lanes followed by tea & cake. £30/car. 
      Fun, very informal and no beardy concours inspectors. All shite welcomed. You'll get to meet me and my Puma, and possibly @Cluffy's Corrado if he ever fixes it. 
      Kick-off is 1pm in a tiny village called Aslackby about 15mins north of Bourne. 
      If you just want to come and eyeball the cars it's £7.50 for the tea & cake and they'll be back at base for 4pm. 
      Let's paint the village beige!
      I will send the charmingly old-person Word Document application form to anyone who wants it via email.

      Quick poll to see who is available when.
      Happy to update the polls with any suggestions!

      It didn't happen last year because I wasn't fit enough.  This year, and on the wave of having done Inverness for Christmas, I'm feeling up to a south-coast trip again.  This of course means there will be the usual Shiters' lunch meet at the burger van on Portsdown Hill, most likely on Wednesday May 13th.  I'll be in the wheelchair bus, sorry; MrsR has vetoed taking Hairy Pussy even before I've got it home.
      We will also be stopping each way at a Travelodge or Premier Inn somewhere in the Midlands, so there might be an opportunity for a Midlands Massiv Meet too.  Or even two of them!  It worked well enough at Cumbernauld!
