Cadwell park HSCC Hillman Imps VS Minis
The up to 1300cc race at Cadwell Park, Because of the up to 1300cc rule it
was virtually an Imp VS Mini race. Simon Benoy took a very deserving win
after the restart.
Unfortunatly on the restart David Heale's gearbox broke due to no fault of
his own, full race Imps are hard to get off the line because they are rear
engined and rear wheel drive, they don't get the wheel spin like some of
the other cars, that coupled with having a full race cam means alot of revs
are required to get the car moving. Plus a race clutch makes slipping the
Hillman Imp App K - a busy weekend...
Doc racing his Imp in a round of the Norwegian Historic Racing
Championship, with me jumping in for race #2. The car was not running as it
should, and was down on power. In addition we had an overheating issue
after a few laps. We ran carefully to get some much needed seat time, as
well as setting up the suspension. These cars will be seriously
fast....some day :)
We still had grand fun, even if the car god a good wallop in the side,
which btw is the first bodywork damage to any of our racers since 1983!
