Ace Cafe Aircooled Meet July 2011

July 20th, 2011

A few of us ventured out to the Ace Cafe Aircooled meet last night for a good ‘ole chinwag over a brew (of hops or tea leaf variety - choose your poison) The threatening skies only produced the briefest of showers, which frankly made the journey to the Ace more fun in the race cars, slip sliding around on the demand of the right foot and opposite lock! The College of North West London brought along the sister car to the Volksworld racer - the product of all the staff and students hard graft (and considerable support and sponsorship from the Volksworld team, Thingamies Beetles, Grove Group, Perftec and crucially VW Heritage who have supplied copious amounts of new parts - including all the components for the college to build a new 1776cc Turnkey Motor, which they were running in on the day.) That said engine seems to be quite pokey, even being restricted to around 3000rpm at the moment, with a nice induction roar from the twin HPMX carb setup.

As you’d come to expect from the Ace meet, there was a great mix of vehicles & styles, from buggies, baja’s, bay’s, the beautiful and the battered! with a big showing of the T4 & T5 brigade too. The College was generating quite a bit of interest from the petrol heads in attendance, all of whom had a vested interest in developing their automotive skillsets, with the faculties facilities literally on the doorstep of the Ace.

The time at the Ace seams to disappear faster than high-octane fuel in a race motor, and the clock tower over the cafe entrance seemed to spin as quick a a rev counter! Soon it was nearing the witching hour, so was time to head back home for some shut eye, as it was a school night after all (Well for the College guys at least!)

See you there next month!

Next stop¬† Snetterton this weekend for a Beetle Challenge race.. then straight onto¬† Bug Jam for some fun…
