Kieran Exige Stag Doo On The Ramshackle Rally

3 posts in this topic

Hi all,

 

Just seen Paul has posted a few pics on here. Just on my way round the m25 now.

 

What a mad week. Starting off with the head gasket failing on our £250 banger 24 hours before we were suposed to leave.

 

Seeing as we spent the previous weekend painting it ready and it had been paid for we had no choice but to drop the engine, get the head off, stripped, skimmed and rebuilt with the clearances set all before putting it all back in.

Turned the key at 12:20 am of thr morning of the rally and with a few tweaks of the gear linkage it was good to go... For how long we had no idea without a full test.

 

I can say though it has completed just over 3500 miles as i type and apart from a slight leak from injector no 3 it's been faultless. Right through the uk - France - Switzerland - France - Italy - France - Spain - France and back in the uk.

 

Most of the other teams scrapped their cars in valencia but it did so well we deceided to bring it home.

 

Some amazing roads too. My personal favourite I think is the D558 I think just outside St Tropez. Might have to have a jaunt in the exige next year, incredible
