Just joined last week, I am looking forward to being part of this thriving community.

We have had our 924S for about a year, although we never really planned to buy one. We have been competing in historic road rallies for the last few years - I navgiate and Mrs. S drives.

We had used a Mini and then a Golf GTi but she has shoulder issues and wanted power steering, so in March 2016 we bought a 944. We used this a few times but realised we had probably got one which is too good to thrash and scratch. So that is now just for shows and runs and we bought the 924S last October.

It has some, er, patina in the bodywork but is sound and mechanically pretty good. We used it on the Rally of the Tests last year having really just checked the fluids, changed the belts and fitted a sum pguard and spotlights. It never missed a beat.

It has completed a further half-dozen events and is doing RoTT again in November.

So I am ploughing through the 924S technical section for hints and tips and will try to take part in club discussion and events in future.

Colin.

Great to have more motorsport people in the club, we have a few that rally their 924s.
