Woodbridge Autotest

with 2 comments

With the yellow Mini in one of its increasingly rare ‘on the road’ phases, I took the opportunity to enter an autotest run by Chelmsford MC at Woodbridge airfield yesterday. As expected, a good day (although the Peugot driver who broke his gearbox might disagree!), and I managed fifth place. It’s a while since I’ve done an autotest, and as usual, I was just starting to get the hang of it again by the time it finished.

There are a few photos here.

Yellow peril back on the road at last

with 2 comments

After a couple of months driving Jane’s fancy modern Mini 40 (still a real Mini, of course – not that modern!), I’ve finally got round to replacing the exhaust that fell off mine, and fitting a catch tank for all the oil that used to spray out of the breather filters.

It’s quite a change going back – noisy, smelly, no servo assisted brakes, low gearing, basic interior, non-cancelling indicators…

…which is just how I like it.
