As Marcus said, we had a good turn out of Beta's and the weather was not too bad.

Congratulations go to James Weddell in his HPE VX for winning best Lancia of show

see the rest of my photo set:

My Prisma made the 220 mile round trip with no problem but I sadly did not experience the  "in second going round roundabouts, there's a mixture of grip, wheel spin, torque steer and a bit of lift-off oversteer "  Cheesy

I did miss the Beta on the way home, Eric W flew passed me in his highly tuned Monte and all I could do was wave bye Wink

Fail! I'm sure some lowering springs and a turbo would sort that out Grin To be fair the HPE does the same with some enthusiastic driving Wink minus a whooosh and a tsssssssssss; something to doing with the right pedal i'm told.

You were of couse top company as usual and I did notice you bouncing in the seat Kart style for extra power on that short bit of dual carrage way on the A5. With no turbo I missed out on the woooosh and tsssssssssss and the torque steer and wheel spin. When a Monte runs out of grip it goes into a flickable 4 wheel slide or with clumsy throttle ends up facing in the wrong direction! It was definately more fun on the way there. I loved the drive along the A43 Silverstone road on a slide in accelerate out basis I passed hoards of MGs and a pair of highly tuned Mk2 Escorts proving the worth of Lancia's fantastic suspension designs. 

It was great to meet Marcus I am so impressed with his Beta HPE racing project. I was a shame I did not manage to get you talking to John Day I know you would have found it very useful after his years of racing a Beta Coupe.

Good to meet so many people and sorry if we did not talk.
