  • Marathon Dyno Fundraiser

    In the hope of raising plenty of dosh for Devon Air Ambulance, the Southwest Region of VxSCC are staging a marathon rolling road event on Saturday 14th October this year at www.apmotors.co.uk.

    Total Vauxhall magazine have confirmed they will be in attendance as well as possible coverage by local newspapers and Radio stations.

    AP motors have agreed to give us a great price so each car run will cost
    £25, £5 of which will be going to Devon's Air Ambulance.

    As this is a charity event we do require a deposit of £5 paid directly to AP
    Motors, just to ensure a good turnout.

    Deposit can be paid by Card, Cheque, postal order or Cash if you are in the area.

    Please be sure to give your contact details so that a reciept can be made
    out to you, also you will be given a number when you've paid which will
    indicate your place in the Dyno Queue on the day.

    We have invited the following other Forums/Clubs:-

    VXR Online

    The generous Guys on one forum have a few members that cant make the event but have offered to make a donation anyway.

    If anyone else cant make it on the day but would still like to support the cause, you could make cheques or postal orders out to 'VxSCC Southwest Region' and send them to Mr W. Barker, 51 Gillards Close, Rockwell Green, Wellington, Somerset, TA21 9DX.

    Many thanks

        Ok People,

        I contacted AP motors and was a little disappointed to hear that out of the 40 people interested........only 16 deposits have been made.

        Some of those who have made deposits weren't asked for details or offered a 'run number'. So I'll be keeping the list updated from now on.

        The sooner you get your deposit paid, the earlier you will hit the rollers.

        I will be handing out a copy of the final list on the day together with a disclaimer form to be signed before you will be allowed to run..........then you will have to make final payment of £20

        The list (in running order) so far is.......

        1 - Barry Worth
        2 - Bernie Pearson
        3 - Andrew Thompson
        4 - Jason White
        5 - Mark Phillips
        6 - Rod Phillips
        7 - Mr R Reeman
        8 - Will Belcher
        9 - Will Belcher (second car)
        10 - Wayne Barker
        11 - Mike Grey
        12 - Shane Gibbons
        13 - Andrew Norman - Tel - 07783605222 - Vauxhall Astra GSI
        14 - Micheal Lampitt
        15 - Keir Manning
        16 - Stephaine Holmes

        Please help to increase the numbers

        Many thanks

        Smudge

        P.S. If you would like to see/sign the form before the day (may save time) please PM me your postal address and I'll send your copy.
        If you do request the above..........dont forget to bring it with you.

        Cheers.

            Hi Smudge,
            Sorry I would've attended but already have something arranged on the Saturday that I really can't miss. Hope it all goes well and that everyone that is attending has a good day.
            Regards,

                      Prize from LMF is not yet known and may not be available on the day ...........but it is confirmed (may keep this as a gamble choice against the first few cheaper prizes.

                      If you fancy a run but haven't paid a deposit there is still a strong chance you will get on if you just turn up.......AP Motors still reckon they could run up to 50 cars in a day.

                      You know you want to ;-)

                          Big thanks to all that supported the event.
                          Well done Lynne for selling all those raffle tickets.
                          Total Money raised for Devon's Air Ambulance came to £405.00 which we reckon aint too shabby for a one day event.

                          Unfortunately some Guys had lower than expected results due to running probs like Wayne and His Courteny cams causing the nasty rattle of the new set of lifters. Bernie's had a misfire and David's Courtenay Turbo was not running the Power they claimed (hope you get that sorted M.
                          Wasn't overly happy with my cars performance as I'd borrowed a nice big Cone filter from Keir hoping to gain a horse or two over my previous result of 199 bhp (with very worn plugs and a dodgy MAF sensor). Those nice chaps at AP agreed to run the car again just to see the difference between Cone and Panel filter setups on a Vaux V6 (old and very contraversial talking point amongst V6 owners).
                          Imagine my joy as the car running with the standard box with 3 pipe mod, extra cold feed and a pipercross panel filter hit 220.9 bhp with 221 lbs/ft of torque.........I'm still grinning now.

                          Here are the results.....
