Richard Conway brought his lovely PV544 down for a rolling road setup. Richard’s PV has a nice patina and was previously owned by a Swedish rally driver. Graham found that the twin weber carbs had a couple of odd jets which were swiftly replaced. The engine is running much better now ready for a couple of track days.
A great cup of tea was provided by the Lenham Cafe as we sent off the crews of the 2011 Winter Challenge. They are retracing the path of the original Monte-Carlo Rally and will be driving some of the worst winter roads the Alps have to offer. An excellent variety of cars are competing including a Volvo PV544, a pair of Lotus Elans, a few Volvo Amazons, a couple of Mercs, a Ford Anglia, some Alfas and a Lancia Fulvia. There was a Triumph TR3 and TR4, a works Landcrab with a 3 man crew, a Lenham Sprite, a mk1 mini, an Alvis, and a mk1 Escort to name but a few. I am sure everyone involved will enjoy it immensely if not for the cold. Good luck.
We are taking a handful of Lenhams down the road to the Historic Lenham Cafe to meet the crews of the 2011 Monte Carlo Winter Challenge as they stop off for a cup of tea before crossing the Channel. Come and join us for the send off and a cup of tea.
