  1. Talking with a number of the Wellington guys last weekend at the Barry's garage meet, there seemed to be quite a lot of interest in a track day for people to have a go. The Constructors Car Club are running their annual track event on Saturday the 23rd of September. For anyone not going on the Whangamomona road trip, this would be a great event, with heaps of track time for a very reasonable entry fee. With permission, I've copied the event details from the organisers below: All Wellington motorsport club members are invited to this event... The Constructors club and MG club track day at Manfield, Saturday 23 September 2017, regs and entry form are now available for downloading at...https://www.hansonconsulting.co.nz/CCC/2017 CCC and MGCRR Track Day Entry and Regs.pdf This event is using the full 3km track at Manfeild and is intended as a low key opportunity for folks to try out driving on the track, learn some skills, test their car and have a rewarding day out. There will be tutorials available, slow sessions, fast sessions and one session with slalom sections coned out on the track. A second drivers briefing at lunch time is planned for drivers who only want to do the afternoon session. $90 if prepaid on-line or $100 cash on the day. Contact details for the organisers are given in the supplementary regs in the link above.
  2. Hi Everyone, I bought this car just before Christmas last year, and have been driving it as my daily since then. It's a '96 318ti with a stroked 328i motor & 5 speed box, 325 diff, 330 brakes and bilsteins on all four corners. I've progressively been working to tidy things up as various bits of trim are a bit tired, but in general it's been great fun. Have had issues with passenger seat occupancy sensor, vacuum leaks and broken wires at the speedo sensor, all fixed with relatively little drama so far. As it's a struggle to drive it at anything close to its potential on the road, I took it up for the MCC Envirowaste Autocross on the full circuit at Manfield a month or so ago, which I highly recommend (there's another one in November). While my times didn't set the world on fire, it was pretty respectable for a comfortable road car. I look forward to meeting up with the Wellington crowd at some point. Cheers, Hamish
