Just a quick note to say that my Mk 1 Jem RS C 1055 has finally made it to my garage at home after 10 years!

Have started stripping her down to make her into a historic race car.

So far looks very good, very light! and most of the glass looks pretty sound.

Will try to put some photos up in the coming weeks.

All,

she is now completely stripped to a shell and is on her side in the garage.  Crossmember is fine but end plates are shot as are the rear inner wings that look like a complete mini inner wing!

Will take some photos and get them up later in the week.

all

Not been on here for a few years!

after 9 year on non activity on the Jem it's back in the garage.

Rear arch steel cut out, front cross member now fully exposed.

Hardboard removed, to be replace with marine ply.

Will post up some photos when my internet is fast enough!

Plan is still the same, historic race car, hope fully complete later the year.

Hello Pete,

What series are you looking to run it in? CSCC swinging sixties or HSCC events!

Olly

Have helped Julian and Ollie Howell with their mini for many years now, last year we ran that in the swinging 60's and had a good time, nice club and lots of variety of cars.  We gave the best sprites a good run for their money!

Car will be built like Granny Smith as a sprint and hill climb car (for me and my sons) but it is also likely to do some circuit racing, sort of keeping my options open!

Hello Pete,

I too am looking at the CSCC Swinging Sixties for my Marcos, Looking to complete the re-build late spring/early summer with a view to dipping my racing toes into the water for Brands Hatch on 23 July and the test days building up to that. Hopefully I can get a reliable car for 2017!!

Kind Regards
