I've no idea if it is easly achievable but maybe a conversion to hydraulic action would help?

My two Beta Coupes owned in 1980 and 1984. Bought the mk1 from Kinross car auctions in 1980 for 1300 when it was 3yrs old, and the mk2 for 1450 privately in Arundel in 1984.
Amazing cars and both 2Ls.

As a past owner back in the 80s of two red Beta 2L Coupes, I'm now looking to buy another to satisfy my nostalgic pangs.
Unfortunately I have a left knee injury and using a clutch pedal can be troublesome for me unless servo assisted where that is feasible.
Are there any known ways of adding some sort of assist to the clutch pedal on a manual Beta Coupe to lessen the load?
I guess the alternative would be an auto but I doubt any of these for sale.
Thanks, Roy

I can vouch for that one Neil, 190 thousand miles & counting!  Considering a nip up-to  John O Groats in October but my co driver wants to take the grale Undecided

Many Thanks also to Mark for the scenic (HOT) route and the most welcome Italian fizzy water at the other end Smiley

Tim.

Looks like you had a good turn out. I think we would have made it but there were a few things looming over the beta 150miles in to its awakening from 26years of sleep that were a bit risky.

I have found that the more I use my Beta, the better it runs. My round trip over the last long weekend ended up at 879 miles.

Many Thanks to Amanda & Steve for organising and the fantastic food & beer! Now have significant house/garage envy!

Jacob and I had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the run. Bella the slightly orange Beta drove straight home up North as sweet as a nut, without a re-occurrence of the binding front caliper! (A THOUSAND THANKS TO THEO FOR SAVING THE DAY!!!) 

I think bearing in mind the heat all our cars coped really well, even a slightly slipped cam belt and the odd loose gear linkage didn't leave anyone stuck, most people would bottle it and call the AA etc. Credit to all wielding their spanners Smiley   

It was a real pleasure to follow Marcus and his Mum in their integrale, as well as Theo saving my bacon I think someone else was looking after us on Sunday Smiley

Cheers all,

Looking forward to next year.

(p.s awesome pictures as ever Tony)

Well done to Amanda and Steve for organising this years weekend/ Sunday bacon rolls  Smiley, and thanks to Mark who planed the route, and also laid on refreshments at www.lanciabetaparts.co.uk  HQ.

The Sunday didn't din't go quite to plan  Roll Eyes Amanda sadly woke with a migraine, and missed the day  Sad which was a real shame considering all the hard work she had put in  Sad
Then next we had a call from Mark, who broke down a mile away cam belt had jumped  Shocked Steve went to the rescue with tools, fortunately it had only jumped two teeth, quick roadside repair and and Mark was good to go  Smiley

Here's a couple of my pics from the day, sadly as we left 1/2 the group took different routes, and missed 1/2 of the cars  Sad

great idea Andrew, would be nice if I could make it one day in my HPE as well and get to know everyone IRL  Smiley
(as long as it's in the south-east part of the UK for me)

It looks like a great time.

Were there any HPE's ? if not I'll try to rectify that on the next outing.
Mines almost ready for a decent run now.

Thanks for sharing.

All the Best,  

Andrew.
