Fighter

I have acquired an article from the beginning of this century. It comprises an interview with Tony Crook and Toby Silverton in which they discuss the forthcoming Fighter and their view of the future of Bristol Cars. In the light of subsequent events it may make interesting reading for some members.

I would like to share the article with any forum member who may be interested. To receive the scanned item as one .pdf attachment please email a request to me at bristol@davedale.co.uk / bristol at davedale dot co dot uk. On previous occasions I have had many requests to see items that I have scanned.  Please be be patient and be prepared to wait for a reply as it is easier for me to do nothing until all requests have been received and then I can send out the scan to all, as one mass mailing.

Please don’t post your request to this forum.  Many thanks.

Dave Dale.

An owner reports fitting Austin Healy 3000 tie rods to his 410 on the advice of others and has found them to be a satisfactory match.

 

Heritage Trust’s event at Bicester on 26/4/15

Bicester Heritage

The Bristol Owners’ Heritage Trust is organising another of its popular annual seminars at the Bicester Heritage, an astonishingly well-preserved pre-war bomber station, formerly known as RAF Bicester. The event will follow a similar pattern to previous seminars with 3 speakers and plenty of opportunity for questions and dialogue. The event is open to all Bristol owners and their guests. This year our presenters are:

Warwick Banks – Personal Racing and Rallying Experiences
Jill Taylor – Bristol Aero Heritage Collection, Filton
Spencer Lane-Jones – Bristol Car Maintenance and Technical Issues

Be aware this is “Drive it Day” and a hoard of vintage and historic vehicles (and aircraft) will also be descending on the Centre in the morning. You are very welcome to join in and gates open from 9am for “historics” (includes Bristols) but not until 1030am for “moderns”. Bicester Heritage will charge £5.00 per historic car and £10 per modern for entry to the site. Food is available on site all day or you can bring a picnic. There will be masses to see as the site itself is fascinating and the various motor/aviation businesses already in residence will be open for inspection. Our talk will start promptly at 2pm in the Scramble Café. Only those in possession of a Heritage pass will be allowed access to the talk so please ensure you return the form below promptly. Your Seminar pass/es will be posted to you. Directions: Bicester Heritage, Buckingham Road, Bicester, Oxfordshire, OX26 5AL. If you are using a SATNAV, head for OX26 5HA. Once inside, park anywhere. Note dogs are not allowed on site.
