Ups & downs as the season kicks off

Ups & downs as the season kicks off

Like always, a new season arrives too soon! There are so many things you should have done…but never quite find the time to do. Since the last outing way back in June, both Imps have had some work done – rollcage improvements, clutch repair, new distributors…and you guessed it – engine trouble has been found....
Velodromloppet 2013

Velodromloppet 2013

Well, we at least got to do more laps than last year! We arrived on Friday afternoon, and got through scrutineering without any major issues. I did have to get Edwin to buy me a fire extinguisher since the Swedish regs dictate that all cars must be fitted with one. In Norway, this is an...
To finish first, first you have to finish first!

To finish first, first you have to finish first!

Or so it goes… Doc’s been at the cars this winter as avid blog readers may know. Still, we were jumping into the big unknown last weekend with the two Imps for the first two rounds of the National Championship for Historic Racing. We got the yellow car running thursday afternoon after some gnawing at...
Pumpkin gets a bump

Pumpkin gets a bump

It’s been a busy summer! Moving the entire shop has been done by Doc and Mrs Doc, and on top of that I’ve had the nerve to go and get married – finally. So after all the flowers, cakes & napkins were cleared off, the surplus booze polished off, and a trip to Sicily was...
A successful debut for the new Imp at Våler

A successful debut for the new Imp at Våler

The new Historic FIA period G2 Imp surpassed everyones expectations in it’s first live-performance (except, perhaps it’s driver and builder?) by performing nearly flawlessly. Friday didn’t start off to well – Doc arrived on track in heavy rain, set up camp, and got ready to go out for free practice – but Pumkin did not...
Clutch Ahoy!

Clutch Ahoy!

Yep, the epic quest for clutch has come to an end. More or less :)

The Cheek C288

The Cheek C288 was a proper group C car – built by Doc, in Tistedal, Norway! Here’s a short clip of it’s first life. Some plans are being cooked around the idea of bringing the little monster back for Historic Group C.
Forza Imp at CSM…almost

Forza Imp at CSM…almost

Things didn’t go to plan this year, but nevertheless we had a highly entertaining Classic & Sportscar Meeting.The last week before CSM started of in a rather troublesome way. With the ratios sorted on George’s gearbox, everything installed and ready to run, we had a terrible whining sound eminating from the bowels of the box....
Mixed fortunes at Rudskogen

Mixed fortunes at Rudskogen

The Bevan replica Imp had a successful shakedown/debut, not so lucky with Pumpkin.Saturday morning started off bright and early. We’d already set up camp on friday evening, and done scrutineering without problems. We soon got George the Bevan replica out for a few installation laps. A few things emerged; the box we’d chosen didn’t have...
First Impressions

First Impressions

Season over, and another KARN Track Day. This time I got to take the Imp for a few laps. And I’m still smiling! This test has been long overdue, but anyway, I finally got to take “Pumpkin” for a spin. It’s been running well for two seasons now, except for a few minor issues. With...
..and the Rudskogen nightmare

..and the Rudskogen nightmare

Well, results-wise it was excellent, but this saturday was marred by a very poorly organized event. To put things into perspective; someone came up with the grand scheme of running an entire race weekend on a saturday – for the National Cup races. With even more classes than usual. The motif was supposedly that people...
The CSM Adventure

The CSM Adventure

From devastation, to heartbreak, to glory. The NSK Classic & Sportscar Meeting had it all in store for me & my mini… I loaded the Mini on the trailer on Thrursday evening, and we stuck the Imp in the Commer, and off we went. After 4 hours of driving we sat up camp at the...
