Re: E10 Petrol to be introduced in the UK from 1st September 2021

From all that I have read Colin, I think it's not use of E10 that is the problem, it is non-use. The E10 fuel that you used in the US will have gone through the system so quickly that the ethanol remained blended with the petrol and didn't separate out. It's when you leave the car standing for a lon...

International event - BACK TO TURIN (June 2021) - CANCELLED

Regrettably with the current situation regarding the pandemic it's not practical to continue with this idea this year. There is too much uncertainty surrounding the possibilities of international travel and the levels of vaccination across different countries. Perhaps in 2022.

Re: 1972 Int. MKIII 133/5483 on Ebay

Seems in reasonable condition although there appears to be a slight colour difference between the doors and the front panels.
Also is that a hint of a convertible peeking out of the corner of the left garage in the background?

Re: Interceptor Mk1 117/2611 LHD/Sincar in France

SINCAR was the distributor owned by Carlo Dusio. Carlo Dusio was also the financial backer of Vignale so he had a financial interest in both the building of the car and then selling it!
