Invitation to Doune Hillclimb April 2015

Postby Dumfriesman » Fri Mar 27, 2015 7:09 pm

Hello everybody
I have received an email from Billy Cater of Lothian car club repeating the offer to all
MX5OC members to attend the April Hillclimb on 18/19th as spectators.I think he would like to see
a group of us to make up a display of MX5s...if you are interested...they will charge 50% entrance fee (£2.50)
We anticipate having about 10+ entered in the hillclimb.
Let me know on here.

Further to my entry above...

We have 16 cars entered...the biggest single make at Doune...with one double-entry...so a total of 17 entries over the weekend. If you aren't all going to the Spring Event (!) then come to Doune...nice little restaurant...gifts and antiques for the shoppers...and the forecast is good.
There is a very large entry list of other cars...from Minis to Nobles and a lot of single-seaters and classics.
Oh! if you want to take advantage of the discount...make sure you have your MX5OC membership card...the entry fee is £7 and you get 50% off.(Yes...they have increased it this year).

I will try and make it there for the Sunday. Are there MX5s racing on the Sunday? Is the start time 0900 as on your web site?

The MX5's are racing both days with a few more entering on Sunday than Saturday (work etc).

Practice is at 9am with lunch break at 12.30 then timed run's starting at around 1pm.

Weather forecast is looking good too.

With all these 5's going to Doune, maybe try and get them all lined up together somewhere in the car park??

Guys I am going to have to pull out of this.

Doesn't look like I am going to get my Eunos back this weekend from AK Automotive so won't be coming up after all :(

Next time!

"back from AK Automotive" !!! Hmmmm...serious stuff.

Have been advised from Billy Cater,Lothian CC,that MX5OC MX5s can be parked in the camping field,entrance on the right...past the entrance to the paddock.Not sure if the small numbers warrant an assigned area,but you might all be able to get parked together in a group.It looks like a good weekend at Doune,with a large entry of Eunos Ecosse cars. Watch out for Leslie's new car in the Gulf Oil livery...very smart,and watch out for people like number 61 Ross 'Glenny' Glen, our "King of the Hill" and his challengers John Roddick (60) and Andy Connell (57). See ya!

Just getting an oil leak fixed under warranty (sounds like rocker cover gasket and CAS o-ring together) and taking the opportunity for them to fit my new Koni/Eibach suspension and do a fast road alignment at the same time.

Enjoyed the event. Had to leave just after lunch but thoroughly enjoyed all the practice runs, what a great spread of different cars to see and hear.

There are a few pics here
