A couple of the latest
designs are shown below.
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.
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.
