Jensen run

by sceptor 512 » Mon Jul 28, 2014 12:28 am

Went to a jensen run that some of the members do here in SA.
So Brian and I jumped in his clubman and head for the hills to meet up with some of his old friends and meet some new people.
great bunch of people.
3 Interceptors and 1 Healy.

Nice! Tell us about the Clubman.

That blue one is very nice, came to Tassie for the Easter rally last year.

The Clubman. was bought to fill the empty spot left by the interceptor.
Brian has always been into sports cars,so he bought this one.
Its a Westfeild running a fuel injected toyota motor and 5 speed.(needs a turbo tho)
I got to drive it around the block the other day,my first time in a clubman.well they are a funny little machine.
you sit right near the back wheels, and looking through the small windscreen at the front wheels with bolt on mudguards.it felt really long and a bit weird to be honest.
So on the weekend, we rugged up (it was only about 14' in the sun)and headed for Maccelsfeild. about a 40 min run thru the hills.to meet the Jensen mob.
there is actually alot of room inside,surprisingly. im 6' 1 and had two jumpers on etc and felt really comfortable in the little racing seat.
cruising along with my hand on the muffler, to keep warm :lol: you just reach down a little bit and touch the road.I had Dri rider norctic gloves on.
and your about head height to the armco barrier,which is another weird feeling when its almost sliding sideways,(i hate being a passenger ;)
to sum it up, they are a fun car that get the adrenalin going.
