Tony,

as we've got such a wide range of dates any chance of trying to coincide with an Ace Cafe night?

Cheers,

Very interested! My 3.5 Dolomite is currently off the road, should be running by end of Aug, and I will be taking part if there are any ates there-after.
Thanks!
Johan.
If it has boobs or wheels it will give you trouble.

I would be very interested, but I seriously doubt the MG will be finished by Sept lol!

If it is, I think it will be worth the drive down!

I'm definitly interested but I'm out of the country until Aug 16th, then out again from 3rd Sept to 7th, so SNAFUd for a lot of possible dates. :(

October 27th until November 18th is good for me too.

Yep interested for around £35 (anymore than that it's a rip off IMO, as the dyno guys don't actually do anything for the money). Also would be date dependant.
