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.

ELECTRIC WINDOWS/SUNROOF BEEPING? Car Fix. Program Drivers Door Switches. Rover 800 820 825 827
This is how to stop your windows and/or sunroof from beeping on your Rover 800. I needed to do the ones on my Rover 800 (Zircon Silver Coupe No.1) after reconnecting the battery. This will usually solve the beeping (although it normally takes a few more goes!). If the windows do still beep, then you may have to remove the door panels and use some spray grease on the cables/mechanicals! Sometimes the drivers switch pack may need resoldering, as they do suffer from dry solder joints on occassion. (as you have two switches on each window in every car, then if one does work and one does not, then it is worth resoldering the one that does not fully function). Also some owners do seem to suggest problems occuring as a result of bad connections in the main fuse box too! So if the above stuff fails it will do you no harm to have that resoldered too!

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!
