It's been a long time since I had my IB, but here are a few shots from Silverstone 2007.  I still really miss my IB but couldn't afford to buy it back these days!  I have to consol myself with a Lotus Elan +2 which gets some track use.  I hope you are all keeping well, Rich (aka Dick)

Good to see you swing by and say Hi Dick, this thread certainly is drawing a few older posters back.

Twelve years ago - OMG!!!

Gosh it is 12 years isn't it?!  That is scary.  I certainly still miss those days, but I have still have 2 IB t-shirts that get worn every so often :-)

It looks like you aren't too far from where I live now (Guildford) so if you're ever in the area, please do drop me a line.  My kids and I would love to see one or two of your cars, and I could show you something which is built slightly less Germanicly!!

We've been there 4 years now, after a stint in Dubai.  My commute is to Oxford and back every day which is a pain in the rear, and not helping the premature aging!

I will drop you a PM with my details.

Hi Rich, 

Still remember hooning it around the service roads outside Silverstone with your SS after one of the IB trackdays '08? :ani_clapping:

Cheers - Gary

Oh yes Gary, you think we would have had enough speed by the end of the day wouldn't you?!

You still got that Mk1 MR2 which I wanted to buy??  I still want one of them.

Nope. Sold on, replaced with a rusty Mk1a beater which blew up, was rebuilt and blew up again ! (definitely not whilst in a doomed effort at racing an Audi R8 :whistling:

Me and Jake were helping Jevvy with his incognito programme forced upon on him following the success of ‘Babylon’. Couldn’t leave the house without being mobbed.🤩

It was very much appreciated too, might as well get some royalties out of this:

Jevvy is Twinny...

...and Twinny is Jake !

I can't recall how/why that was mixed up.  I wrote the article (IIRC), so it's probably on me, but I didn't take the photos or have any final editorial input, so I blame the magazine.
