Weekend Drive

I had booked a single seater driving experience at Rockingham so I thought I'd travel there and back in the AMC.

It did the 100 mile round trip with no problems and I drove there and back with the top down - all this despite its total failure to start last week because I'd let the battery get flat.

It did the two things it does - on filling up I got a huge spit back and soaked the forecourt with petrol - I'd forgotten about that. I am sure that's down to the non-standard tank and filler setup.

The other thing it won't do is start when warm except on a full throttle - embarrasing at the filling station because having spilt fuel everywhere I then look like a total boy racer on startup.

Must get that stuff sorted. One day.
