All the original allocation of rooms have now been filled, but I have managed to get a few more, so I have a couple of ordinary double and twin rooms, plus one twin sea view room available. Sorry all the single rooms have been taken

Nearly all of the extra rooms I have been allocated are now full and I am almost at maximum numbers for the event. I shall be starting a reserve list very shortly!
If you don't book in the next week it may be too late

For those without Sliding Pillar cars who would like to come to see the rally, these are a few of the places to come to.

The rally H.Q. is the Langham hotel on Eastbourne seafront, BUT as the cars will be parked in the secure compound of the Territorial Army base close by please do not come to the hotel hoping to see the cars, you are of course welcome to come to the hotel to meet up with other members and the bar is open to the public. Best time to visit, Friday to Sunday early evenings to 8pm when we have dinner.

Saturday 14th June, we will be at Battle Abbey, Battle from about 10am until 12 noon. The cars will be parked in the triangle just outside the Abbey.  Park in the main car park or the one at the Abbey (Charges apply)

Sunday 15th June, we will be at Burling Gap to the west of Beachy Head at approximately 11am, but only for about one hour.
In the afternoon we visit Firle House, from about 3pm. The Sliding Pillar cars will be parked in a special area, so please park in the main car park. There is a charge to visit the house, but probably not if you just come to the car park.

These are a few pics from the weekend, which started with a Lancaster flyby low along the beachfront (That took some organising!!), a visit to the 1066 Abbey in Battle, two long lunches, visits to Birling Gap and Firle Place. But the highlight was the Langham Hotel, who were fantastic, making the organisers job very easy. Three excellent evening meals, one with a guest speaker, introducing us to many different English wines and the owner Neil Kirby always on hand to look after the guests.

Arrived back home last night after a great time on SPR - one of the best ever! Well done Family Rudler for the organisation which was as impeccable as always. The weather was also mostly good but the food and wine was unbelievably good - and almost too plentiful. It is always an enjoyable meeting of old old friends and this time we did not need to spend much time driving.
We did manage to complete the rally with all 4 Lancias without major incident but on the way back had a disaster. Peter was driving the Aprilia and on the A3 either something fell off a lorry in front with a hit under the car or there was a major giving way of the front fabric drive disc but the car ended up with a fairly neat channel cut in the tunnel by the spider on the end of the propshaft, severed brake pipes and some electric cables. See photo.
AA took car on to Richard Thorne to await repair in the fullness of time. Whilst I was there we also discussed retrim so I may well see if it can be done wholst there. Other cars did behave reasonably well. I might well start a thread on the Flavia section about inability to start when hot!

Brian, that is horrendous and you were extremely lucky that the damage was not more severe and, more importantly, no-one was hurt. In any car where the propshaft is not restrained there is a real danger of the shaft digging into the ground, stopping the car almost dead and pivoting the rear end into the air. If you are lucky the car ends up with the nose on the ground and the rear end some few feet up in the air. If you are unlucky the rear axle is twisted and possibly even ripped off!!!!

Good luck with it,

It is good to know that RTC will be putting things to rights

Unbelievably freakish, as Andy says, very lucky to escape with only relatively minor damage occurred when it could have been a catastrophe!
