Hi All
Its that time of the year again for what is by this stage the annual rolling road event.

As before we will have a rolling road session for those interested on June 30th in Couture Auto in Dunboyne who are a great bunch to deal with and Nick really knows his stuff.

We will combine this with a meet in Maynooth the following day and a drive/photo/lunch oppertunity in Donadea Forst Park, I'll put the details up in a seperate thread to make it easier to follow who is doing what.

Google Map Link to Location

If we get between 10 and 15 cars the price is 50 which is the same deal we got before the only difference now is that because of some muppet on another site stealing peoples deposits they only take deposits direct to their paypal in order to confirm your place.

The deposit is 30 and Couture's paypal is [email protected], the remainder is payable on the day.

Hope lots can join us on either or both of the days

I will give it a miss this time. But when I did the RR last time, it was comforting to know that I still have over 200 bhp (before the service!). I hope you'll post your results

I'm expecting a drop of 15-20 bhp from my peak a couple of years back.

She ain't what she used to be

I definitely get that NCT waiting area sort of feel when she's on the rolling road!

More info from Nick:

The price will be 60 euro then. [if less than 10 cars]

If anyone has any queries, they can email me at [email protected].

I don't normally check forums so if anybody has any queries about the rolling road day, please email me.

Please let the members know of the following:

1) If the car is not suitable to drive on the road, it will not be suitable for the dyno - ie, brakes, bald tires, wire showing, no exhaust system, noisy engine, etc etc etc.

2) Please ensure a reasonable amount of fuel in the car so that it does not need to be refueled on the dyno

3) Members who are putting their car on the dyno will be required to sign a waiver form. If they are not comfortable with this or do not want to sign the form, their car will not go on the dyno.

Thanks
*
Nick

Bumpy bump bump.

Is it just the 3 of us? Do we have a minimum number we need to hit Gav? I don't mind paying the 60 once it actually happens.

Another bump for this, not much interest so far. Nick was on to me to say that there is anothr car club wanting to book the same day as us and I told him we were still interested in the same day because of the meet the following day but I haven't heard anything back from him I hope he hasn't double booked us. I presume if there isn't to many from the other club that we can still do it he same day.
Anyone else still interested in this?

Looks like its just the three of us. If the others wave more cash, I can see it being pushed out.
