July 2016 - The Peter Andrews Memorial Sprint

July 17 saw the 4th running of the Peter Andrews memorial sprint at Woodbridge run by the Fressingfield Oily Rag Club and Javelin Track Days. Last year saw the green Cipher dip it's metaphorical toe into the world of sprinting. The 2015 effort was better than expected with no major drama for the green Cipher, so for this year expectations were raised. The day started dry and cloudy with some sunshine forecast so already better than last years slippery and rainy start. The usual wide variety of cars had gathered in the paddock area ranging from a McLaren MP4-12C to a couple of historic formula Fords and a 1934 Lagonda Rapier driven by it's equally aging owner with great verve. Then in between were the slightly more normal mix of various old and new saloon and sports cars to complete the line up.

After completing scrutineering and a couple of sighting laps the green Cipher was ready to go. Since last year the car has had another gearbox fitted to cure the occasional jumping out of second gear problem. The shock absorbers have been replaced with GAZ adjustables all round ( the fronts being supplied by the excellent Reliant Kitten Register parts scheme) and I now have matching rear wheels and tyres after the disc brake conversion last year meant initially just upgrading the front wheels to 13". So first run of the day and I have over 5 seconds improvement over last years best time. After a few more runs the day is over too soon, but the car is working very well and I've now shaved over 7 seconds off last years best time, but mainly the days about having fun and we've all have a brilliant day out.

Models are available from www.theessenceofthecar.co.uk priced at £48 incl. postage, find it under the GT and Sports section. The models can be finished in most colours in line with the buyer's choice.
