Is there any shower facilities nearby? Or just the basin wash???
Basin? That's luxury mate!
Based on BobN 's plan to sleep in his Rocket I reckon using your coolant tank is more the mark
“Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body. But rather, to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming .... WOW what a ride.”
The generosity we are able to offer here at Mills Extreme Vehicles never fails to be astounding. This year we have dug deep, and I mean deep, we have commissioned a well know reputable company to produce a range of high quality items to be awarded to just 4 lucky guys.
THE CATE-GORY's ARE;
Best Exocet, (might keep that one for me)
Best Sonic, (might give that to Nige as he claims to own one)
Best Rocket, (not a chance BobN)
Best Mevster (I know which family this is going to)
Awarded presentation will take place at the highly prestigious alfresco dining facility at 1 p.m
Get ya polish out guys, judging will be my decision only but I can be bribed.
Cars attending that are on trailers or not booked on circuit will also be considered for the coveted awards.
You can keep em and we will buy more for next year, such is our generishity.

Out for a quick blast, filled up with fuel, set off. About 3 miles down the road.....loss of power, sensed a miss-fire. Turned back homewards, and stopped at the side of the road. Evidence of coolant leakage on engine cover; removed it, and engine clearly hot....header tank bubbling away. Removed front cover, and rad cold, pipes cold. Returned to rear and.....drive belt off, so no water pump etc.
No tools, so pondered ringing Linda to come and rescue me with an appropriate spanner.
Had a long chat with bloke who passed by walking his dog, asking about the car....usual stuff.
Two minutes later, another bloke reverses up in front....had seen me stopped and wondered if I needed help. Had socket set in car, sufficient to retract belt tensioner to get belt on. Couple of minutes and job done. Then spent 10 minutes chatting about MEVs, kit cars, Nurburgring..... . Seems he had a race licence, and has raced a Sylva Striker at Donington in the past. Bizarrely he thanked me when we parted.....he even told me where he lived should I break down again on the way home, and even followed me part way on my journey.
Such is the power of kitcars - and MEVs in particular!
Anyway, lucky to get home. Seems the bracket for the extra idler has moved out of line; turns out that one of the studs into the engine block has sheared (b*gger!) and will need removing before I'm mobile again.
Looking on the bright side it happened today, not on the way to Curborough next week.
Red & Black Sonic7 - 1.8l Zetec - on the road since June 2011
