    In amongst the Bugatti Members 'B' License Handicap (Road Cars) on Saturday was a rather tasty Accord Type-R.
    According to the programme entered by Steve Davey from Cheltenham, 2200cc, 1998.
    Black car with a good looking pair of tailpipes. Unfortunately, as I was officiating, I didn't get time for a chat, but it was a good view out of the Hill Control hut window and was impressive getting off the line... :Smile:

    And the marshal on that post (Pardon Hairpin) from where the filming was taken?? ME!
    Couldn't figure out which car I had parked up there, but I guess it had to be the MINI Clubman Cooper D, so it must have been a few years ago. A non competitive day (though you were chucking that Civic about :Smile: )

    Thanks for the clips Slim, I am slowing getting around to the appeal of retro hill climb Civics however the conflict in my mind with motorcycle and cars is constantly raging and still undecided.

    Motorcycles are the moment are in the top of my wish list I plan to get atleast half dozen reto Honda bikes soon and a new garage.
