Re: Registering a uk car in France

I know (vaguely) somebody in France who has registered 2 Ginettas over the past couple of years.

The phone number is at the bottom of his webpage.
Good luck.

Re: Hillclimb rollbar/rollcage

Thanks Colin Newbold for that information. It is my hope to be able to run with just the roll hoop and the forward facing petty bar. I will have a chat with my local scrutineer to get his thoughts on the Historic Tecnical Passport. Thanks everybody who has replied to this post.

Hillclimb rollbar/rollcage

After competing for the last 6 years with my Ginetta G4 in hillclimbs/sprints I fancy using my Hawk 289. The local head scrutineer for the southwest of England said he would love to see me out competing in the car but he feels that I would need a full rollcage. My question is; are there any 289 repl...
