Reliant Sabre and Scimitar Owners Club

Test Day 13th August 2009

As part of the Reliant Sabre and Scimitar Owners Club "Sporting Weekend", there's a test day beforehand to either just have a bit of fun driving your own car to it's limits (like me), or set up your race car ready to take part in the Reliant Sabre and Scimitar Speed Championship.

Above: Raz puts his Renault to good use and very kindly offers to instruct people on how to do a better lap of Curborough. 
Raz normally races an Reliant Scimitar SS1, but I think Renault is close to Reliant...

Sorry no video footage of this one
