Howdy Chaps. Now my good friend Grant is taking Oliver the Olop round the ring in Aug, but due to holiday - i can't go :(. This got me thinking about next year though.... ;)

The plan is to have a group of us that sets off and travels to the ring, making a full weekend of it and having an awesome laugh.

The idea is for us to travel in bangers, top gear styleeeee. It would be a right laugh and shouldn't cost the earth.... The idea would be to buy a cheap crapper such as a corsa and then make it into a nimble track warrior - but keeping it cheap.... Possibly put a limit of £500 or something. I'm sure insurance would be arranged on a weekend basis and then weigh the tax in after the weekend... Alternatively, find a banger that has tax and MOT!!

I think this would be a real cracking experience and a chance to have a crack at the ring in a car your not extremely worried about. It would happen next year in the summer, so we could save a little bit each month....

Thoughts?

Just take a BRM? ;)

Sounds interesting but I haven't got anywhere to store the banger :no:
I know what you mean! It's difficult storign these cars without making your house look like a scrapyard! Find an old person with a spare parking space or garage....

I am thinking giant saloon car barge of doom!!
lol!
