Re: Forge Action Day 2019 Castle Combe Saturday 7th September

I'll post so I get the notifications from this thread. Provisionally I'll have a stand ticket, but it depends if I'm away on one of my trips in September or not - I don't have the dates yet. Got the dates now, no ticket for me I'm afraid - I'll be in Seattle before a drive down the Pacific coast 8)

Re: Problem with steering rack

Hi and :welcome: Samhilliar. :) Tell us more about the car (how long have you had it, any other problems etc) and about yourself - eg roughly where you are in the country (there may be local meets and specialists nearby).
