Adam the owner (forum username AdamR) has a keen interest in cars and himself has a Westfield, and having used GoPros for a number of years in a huge variety of ways (skiing, cycling, cars, under water, general out and about use) he knows them inside out and is more than...

North Meets South – a Blatastic Day Out

by admin on August 31, 2014 in Reports with No Comments

Well where to start - at the beginning? Actually we'll reach back a tad farther. SKCC does indeed have some more Northerly members, actually scratch that - PALS. It was about time that a few Southerners reciprocated, the likes of Paul/Linda/Chris have all been down this way before, so why not venture 'up country'. A win/win, see old pals, meet folks who've we've only 'seen' on the forum or on dodgy videos - and take in some new roads....Puuuuurfeck. Yep, til we worked out the timing. 'Bloody Hell Rodney' - that's early.....yep, the first meet was timed to LEAVE Lakeside...

Insuring a Kit Car

by admin on August 16, 2014 in Reports with No Comments

What to look out for when insuring your Kit Car. Those new to the world of 'Kits' are often taken aback when they start to get insurance quotes, you see there's normally a pleasant surprise in store; Insuring a specialist car is in the majority of cases costs far far less than an everyday driver. I suppose the clue is in that word - 'everyday driver', insurance companies and their actuaries aren't in the habit of giving something for nothing, they know that Specialist Cars are cared for, are well maintained and unlikely to be driven in poor situations (...

We had hoped to rope in a few more Westerners for this run out to their patch, but seemed we picked the wrong weekend! Anyway, those that made it had a good 'craic' as usual - plenty of great roads and a ton of banter...... 07:15 meeting point... some garage somewhere in the middle of nowhere. 8 cars raring to go! The obligatory Tony Stop™ picture View from the breakfast table. Re: Trip to Compton Abbas airfield Sunday 22nd June by DJ. » Mon Jun 23, 2014 12:24 pm The photos look pretty good to me Steve.

27th April – Edenbridge to Cowfold…

by admin on April 27, 2014 in Reports with No Comments

Duncan led a little run from Edenbridge down to Cowfold....and writes.... Well, the weather wasn't too bad this morning I headed out on the run I'd planned with the hood up expecting "thundery showers" and up to Maresfield it was dry. The rain started at the Ashdown forest and it was quite wet near Edenbridge. Heading down to Groombridge it dried up and it was dry almost all the way to the Chalet from there! I thought about taking the hood off, but it's hard to know where to store a wet hood No traffic down the Colemans Hatch road...

corking run, this morning. But first a strange one.... i've never ever used the snooze feature on my phone alarm , mainly cos i never understand the mentality of the 'snooze' and therefore i have no clue how to set it.... so i was a tad surprised to find that i'd missed my alarm call by 5 mins and the phone was 'snoozed' - WTF? Very quick Java intake, almost inhaled as i need fuel before the main to the meet point to find that Jay must have wet the bed as he was early too. So a more...

by admin on March 23, 2014 in Reports with No Comments

A bunch of the guys popped down to a new eatery on teh Coast, well you have to take advantage of clear, sunny skies! 'Russ' writes and supplies the evidence! Lovely bright, dry start to the day, off to our usual meet point at Buck Barn. From there it was heading West down the A272 for a fair stint, almost as far as Winchester, with me leading the pack... That was until the traffic lights by Loomies cafe where Tony B and Kenton decided to undertake me via a garage forecourt and miss out the lights, cheeky buggers. It was...

Sun is shining in the sky, there ain't a cloud in sight...... what a fabulous morning that was, no headlights from the start and hat/snood came off very early on, just riding with a pair of shades for most of the run, summers here folks, get out before winter arrive! was great to see Bob on his first run for about a year, and also Ken in his westy (not sure of the last time I met you?). Todays run was on some great twisty roads and would have been made all the better if the council laid some tarmac...
