Welcome to the board!

There is a Google map of Sylva owners:

Not sure how up to date it is though.

Whereabouts in Derbyshire? I'm in Hyde on the east side of Manchester so Derbyshire isn't far away for days out.

Hi All,
Especially Edd.

Just to add some info on the Striker Steve has.

It is the Striker built by Brian Ward, which he sold to me quite a few years ago now (9?).
Where has that time gone.

Brain had got back into shooting last time i spoke to him.

I was not using it anywhere near enough and thought it needed using and a little more TLC than i had been able to give it.

Does anyone know if Claire Rule is still around the scene ?.

Hopefully we might get to a Kit Car show when they are able to restart.

Cheers all Paul Harcombe. (missing the striker allready).

Hi,

I believe that Claire is crapengineering. It's on faceache and instagram

https://www.instagram.com/crapengineering/?hl=en

I'm guilty of a bit of instagram snooping, I don't do faceache.

Looks like a progression from the KLZE/KLDE Fury project.
Are these better than the AJ30 which everyone else is using? (questions a bit of a thread hijack sorry)

Hi all,

Thanks to all replies and especially to Paul.

I'm the new owner of a lovely Striker and I'm loving every minute in it.

As Paul said, it needs a little TLC and I want to sort it myself without troubling Paul with every question of the car.

I live in Swadlincote Derbyshire so quite central.

Thanks all,

Steve

Hi all, and thanks for the warm welcome.

I actually live in Swadlincote which is close to Derby and Willington.

I will be taking over Paul's lovely Striker and hope to spend alot if time making it my own.

I have had a look on the maps page and there doesnt seem a great deal nearby.

HI Paul,
Yes, the years fly by! I had forgotten that you had bought Bryand Striker, it's a well sorted beast IIRC!
