What's wrong with the Corsa !!!!


:lol: Many things, but that's not important right now, even if it does have a turbo.

Both. I want to know how a race 924 feels like on the edge :sweat:


I second this. You have to bring a turbo if possible, but I would also love a thrill ride in a race car.

Fingers crossed my scruffy turbo will be there to play. We have a runner and a clutch hopefully.

Condition and/or drivability are immaterial for turbo 40. We just need as many turbos, all CGT colours and a couple of GTS (Ricky + Mark :hope: ) as possible in attendance. Driven, towed or trailered. 40 turbo'd cars are the minimum expected Please...... :nod: :beer:

Probably going to travel north on the Friday. Options are, no family, stay in hotel Friday and possibly Saturday. The other option is with family and we set up camp nearby. Seem to be a lack of campsites near Three Sisters. Anyone else looking at stopping over with or without family?

A lot more out by me, Ormskirk, Southport way. I'm only 30 mins from Wigan.

Premier Inn in Wigan has family rooms, can't be too expensive, it's Wigan :lol:

2 nights in a cheap AirBnB should suit me.

Very likely be the three of us so somewhere like Travelodge, Premier Inn etc work out better for the family rooms. Or I see the Ibis includes breakfast so works out okay too. Somewhere with a pub within walking distance would be a a bonus :beer: :booze: :whistle:

We're planning on being there, and taking the chance to do some touring around.

Looking forward to it.
