Saw a P reg silver 20VT heading out of Pontefract towards Ackworth just before 9am yesterday morning, possibly the same one as my previous post.

Red Coop, most likely a 20VT, in traffic on Hard Ings Rd?, Keighley, yesterday. Anyone?

First one I've passed in over a year!

I've seen a red one around the White Rose Centre twice this week on the way to work, never seen it before.

I guess it wasn't you Andy, it was too shiny!

Certainly wasn't mine Phil - been sat on the drive since September with a dead engine. You might see it on a trailer any day soon!

I'm near Pontefract Adam, which part of Leeds are you?

Hi guys,

I'm in Beeston currently but spend most of my time in London.

Be good to meet some other owners, I don't know anyone!

Don't know! I wasn't told much about it and should have asked more questions.

Brains of mush me Nick - can remember a numberplate but struggle with anything more significant!

Looked good. Hopefully a meet comes off soon and I'll see it a bit closer up again.

That was me! It was a good day yesterday, weather better than forecast and I got a new PB. How did your brother get on?

Nice one! Looks like he got on OK, just had a quick look at the results.

That's quite an old photo, I've had a black roof for the last two seasons! The 205s are very rapid at Harewood, light weight definitely pays off - for the first time a car in the class I'm in (over 2ltr 2wd) was quicker than a car in the 1.4 to 2ltr class.
I got a new PB yesterday of 67.99 which I was delighted with, the 68.28 was the previous event.

I assumed he took that photo yesterday but he obvs just grabbed it from the web!

Yes the 205s are rapid, I used to have one with a 2.1 16v on throttle bodies and it went quite well. I was actually looking for a 205 GTi project when the Coupe came up.

Very cool re. PB and more to come no doubt.

Would like to know a bit more about your spec as currently restoring a 20VT and want to use it for tracks days and the odd hill climb. What suspension do you run and do you have any special mods to adjust camber and caster?

Suspension wise I've got Bilstein B6 shocks and Eibach springs with the Eibach anti-roll bars on both ends. EIbach camber adjustment bolts set to give the maximum negative camber possible, nothing at the moment to adjust castor. It's a pretty good set up although when budget allows I would quite like the BC Coilovers as they are probably a step better. Engine wise it has a 55 trim turbo with remap from FC Performance giving 275hp and 268lb/ft.

I put pictures of the effect of suspension changes in this post - https://www.fiatcoupe.net/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=1599720#Post1599720

Thanks for the info Andy and the link. I'm gradually reading all the useful info on the forum but being about 18 years late to the Coupe party there is a lot to catch up on!!

I didn't do the spotting but a chap in black Merc flashed and waved with "thumbs-up" at me this afternoon at roadworks a bit west of Leeds!
