I'm hoping to get into Wiscombe too though I've not heard anything back yet. That last position could be in contention

I'm doing what I hope are the final few bits of preparation of the car for the Wiscombe Hillclimb 6&7 Sep am doing a bit of head scratching with respect to towing points at both the front & rear of the Gold Coupe. Has anyone any proven solutions or suggestions? I've just started a thread in the Coupe technical area considering a metal fabrication hanging off the sub-frame to one side with a shackle just below the bumper level, and for the rear bolting a towing eye through the chassis through to a load spreading plate.

Looks like I've missed out on getting in to compete at this but I'll aim to come along and spectate. Would be good to meet up. Do you want any pit crew?

Help, are there any metro clutch experts out there. My clutch won't fully disengage. Had the problem a few days ago and it started dragging, and made adjustments to get the gap right between the housing and the centre nuts. All worked fine, and it's happened again. No manner of adjustment has had any effect. Done all the standard checking of the hydraulic system and all working fine & holding pressure. Any ideas? If can't fix then Hillclimb tommorow is off!!!
