What's the biggest Mercedes Rally / event of the year?
I spent Saturday at the extraordinary Rolls Royce Enthusiasts rally at Burleigh - a huge collection of exceptional, and quite cheap, kit, and then was surprised to see several hundred modern Mercedes at the Flywheel meet at Bicester...
While my W114 coupe was being restored by Project Shop, I met the lovely Bron Burrell, who is returning to rally driving at a mere 72. Her car, Puff the Magic Wagon, took part in the 1970 London to Mexico Rally, and she was part of the team of three. Tish, who owned the car then, has sadly...
My lad and I are going to Wales Rally GB on a day ticket for the Saturday.
A simple question - will I be ok in my car, or should I take the wife's Focus?
He seems to think there will be driving on mud tracks/poor roads between stages - I'm hoping there will normal roads and places to park...
I have just done a PureRally event and I thought I'd tell you guys about it as when I first posted about the rally before I had booked it people had mixed reviews.
I did the Monaco rally. We visited Paris, Lyon and ended in Monaco.
It was brilliant from start to finish, well organised and the...
Hi all just thought I would like to share some pics of my recent trip on the European Modball rally 2015, Route: London-Paris-Milan-Rome-Monaco-Barcelona. Was an amazing trip and saw some great sites and even better cars along the way hope you enjoy the pics!
General motoring in a different way, I suppose.
I went out this morning to see the Historic Commerical Vehicle Rally come through our town. I'm no nerd, but I've got to say, I was impressed.
From the sublime:
Through the impressive:
To the terrifying:
Imagine that in...
Was wondering if anyone on here had experience of spectating Rally GB, and whether they considered it a worthwhile experience, and specifically how much you can feasibly see?
I'm personally keen to go - both to watch what is probably my favourite motorsport, and also it would be a good chance...
Gents (and the odd lady that browses this forum),
I did something stupid last night, and paid my registration fee for the mongol rally.
So now, I need a crap car to drive to Mongolia in. Current rule are that the car can't have more than a 1l engine, though rumour suggests that this year it's...
I'm toying with the idea of turning a regular w123 into a rally car.
To start with I need a saloon/coupe 280e with manual transmission.
This is a problem, these 280e's with manual gearbox are very rare.
My question is:- if I get hold of a w123 200 saloon with manual transmission and...
Modball Rally of Europe 2015 opened it's registration today
EUROPE 2015 | Modball
Stops at some nice places.
Me and AshC63 have signed up just awaiting email confirmation of place & I think Lee C63 is signing up also :thumb:
Am I the only one who thinks this driver is a triumph of sponsors' cash over ability.
Always a fault of the road/notes/conditions...... never that he is just not a rally driver.
Kimi realised this and gave up.
I'm being spoilt this Christmas, Mrs Dave is buying me a 'Rally driving experience' day with so many popping up via google it's difficult to choose.:doh::doh:
Whilst living in Plymouth driving up to the Midlands or South Wales is fine & favouring a Suburu WRX to play with
It's without doubt...
