Tony Pond IOM TT Challenge Rover Vitesse 100mph lap record
In 1990 Tony Pond one of the greatest British drivers laps the Isle of Man TT course in a Rover 827 Vitesse averaging 102 mph. For me this is an incredible lap in a car that is far better than it was given credit for. Can you imagine someone trying that in a Ford Granada or BMW 520 or Citroen, Renault, Vauxhall or any other similar priced cars in the Rover price range. As said below by liverush24 this was to show how good the Rover is and at the same time Tony Pond showed how brilliant a driver he is. He did that lap with an average of over 100mph through those narrow lanes and country roads, find other 100mph average laps and get a true perspective of the achievement. Higgins lap to is impressive and a great achievement but done in a modern lightweight state of the art, turbo charged rally car with computer controlled 4 wheel drive to save you in big moments, ABS etc etc, Ponds lap is in an 80's front wheel drive production car with a about 180hp, that is truly brilliant.

Abusing a Rover 820!!
This one was picked up as a "non runner", with a severe head gasket problem... so we intended to strip it of all useable bits, to keep our own 800's going.... Although we had V6's, a lot of the other bits were common... and this was a particularly rare 8v model, with a carburettor, it seemed a shame to kill it, but we did, and had some fun in the process... I'd like to add that I am NOWHERE to be seen in this vid!





How to Fix the ABS. ABS Warning Light on? Self Diagnosis Test & Fault Codes. Turn Off ABS dash light
If your ABS light comes on on your Rover 800 (Rover 820/825/827) you can carry out this simple test to see what is causing the fault (FAULT CODES SHOWN BELOW) as the vehicle is fitted with an on-board Self-Diagnostics system. The connector to use on the late model Rover 800 Mk2 (96-99) only has 2 wires going to it, so you simply connect them together as shown. On earlier Mk2 Rover 800's (92-96) the connector should have 4 wires. On the early cars you need to remove the bridge connection that is present, then connect the Yellow/Green wire to the black wire as shown. (to make sure you have the right connector the other two wire should be coloured Yellow/Black & Purple/Grey). CODE FAULT 1-2 Start/End Identification 1-6 Front Left Solenoid Valve 1-7 Front Right Wheel 1-8 Rear Wheels Solenoid Valve 1-9 Relays or Relay Power Supply 2-5 Pulsar Ring 3-5 Return Pump 3-7 Brake Light Switch 3-9 Front Left Wheel Speed Sensor Signal 4-1 Front Left Sensor Continuity 4-2 Front Right Wheel Speed Sensor Signal 4-3 Front Right Sensor Continuity 4-4 Rear Left Wheel Speed Sensor Signal 4-5 Rear Left Sensor Continuity 4-6 Rear Right Wheel Speed Sensor Signal 4-7 Rear Right Sensor Continuity 4-8 Battery Voltage Too Low 5-5 Electronic Control Unit 5-6 Interruption of Fault Codes The Self Diagnosis Feature will store up to the last 3 Faults it has recorded, even after the fault has been fixed. To clear the Fault Code Memory after fixing a fault and extinguishing the ABS Fault light on the dashboard. From the iginition on position, switch the ignition OFF then back ON 20, yes, 20 times! (This has been known to cause a fuse or two to pop on a few cars, so you may just need to check everything else is still working OK before you drive off!). p.s. Here's my Top Handy Hint: If you have a fault like mine, where you need an ABS sensor, if you want you can use the ones off the opposite side of the vehicle if you re-use your brackets off the correct side. (Great tip when you find a car in the scappers that only has the wrong side one fitted, because you can still use it.) Till Next Time, Have Fun!





Rover 820 Vitesse Sport Turbo Fastback in BRG*
*British Racing Green* This is a late 1999 Rover Vitesse Sport - 200BHP version - in British Racing Green with standard half leather Recaro interior. It's as original as I could find, I bought it with a dump valve fitted and after market stereo, but that's it - everything else is standard. Oh yes, I fitted a chrome mesh front grill too! I do like these 800's/820's/825's/Vitesse/Sterlings - I've had loads over the years and Sd1's too. You can see my project SD1 VDP EFi in the background. Thanks for looking and check out my other Rover clips. P.S :) - tehe, got my dad to write it out - :)
