Maybe not due to last years going wrong.

But is there any talk of a 2008 event?

No - this year's summer biggie will be the record attempt

Yeah it was a shame it died after just 1 event. Was one of the best MLR days so far and I wasn't driving. Great atmosphere and a right good laugh!

I heartily agree. I was one of the few people that did do the 2006 event and signed up for the 2007 event. It's a real shame it died. We have sold the Lancer GTi now, so I guess we are one team that won't be back for a while. Nevermind, it was a good one-off!

'No contact' racing my arse :D

Just as well the roll cage in our Starion was build like the Forth Rail Bridge :lol:

Such a shame it only lasted 1 event!

Never say never ;) I may well just look into this next year :D (note I said 'may' not 'will' ;) )

Hopefully - this years summer party (12th July Castle Combe) will be a really good night too :D

I have to say - I've not been that dirty since I was a kid - but hell! What a good day/night it was!!!!! :crackup:

Brian,
The Starion was only scrapped late last year and even then it was just because Kes needed space.

It still ran fine even though the doors didn't close anymore due to some blue fur stuck in the mechanism.. Don't know where that came from :D:D

Would be good to do another at some point though although I was surprised at the lack of entrants for the 2007 one.

Loads of folk said we must be mad to drive the Starion Turbo in an endurance event and as hard as we tried we just could not kill it :D

Chris,
You need to look here (http://www.lancerregister.com/showthread.php?t=121116&highlight=mlr500) to get the real flavour of the event and the cars.

And yes Brian, even 13 flat out 30-130(ish ;) ) runs couldn't kill it before the event so we knew we were relatively safe :lol:

You had to buy & modify a Mitsubishi for less than 500, with a team of 3-4 people, then after a qualifying session, race it round this dirt track for 2 hours non-stop !! The team who did the most laps won.

Best fun any of us have ever had.

Then there was a big party afterwards in a marquee.

Wow that's a bargain.

However there was everything from FWD Lancer / Colt GTis, RWD Starions / 4WD Galants etc. Not a lot was any quicker than anything else / overtaking wasn't that easy !!!

I'd love to do another one.

They tried again the following year but didn't get enough teams.

I wonder if it'll run for 2 hours?
