    sxoc rebuild

    as anyone who was at the track day will know, jp's car was going well until it had a bit of a run in with the tyre wall after the main straght about 100mph,

    sadly shirley didn't come off too well but jp will be ok

    most of the car is ok, just the chassis leg is past fixing

    myself and nelly had a chat as we off loaded the car to his yard, we know jp has just spent a small fortune on the car and will be hard pressed to get back on the road.

    so we got thinking if we could get a group of sxoc lads together who would chip in 100euro each and/or some spare time to reshell the car think we can get a good jap rust free shell for about 1k,

    think we owe jp this much, dig deep lads

    thank god jp's ok but shirley is definatly the worse for wear, heartbreaking considering how much time so many of us have poured into her

    this, i think, is the least we could do for someone who has worked tirelessly on raising the profile of the sxoc in ireland and organising countless events for us members to enjoy

    so dig deep folks

    Ya lads absolutely gutted for JP So much money, energy and time gone into her too.

    Great idea lads, I'm definately on for this

    And even considering how much JP organises for the club here in Ireland lads, I think he should be looked after

    Not only for raising the profile of the sxoc in Ireland and organising countless events for the sxoc but for being the special boy that he is and everynody that has met JP knows exactly what I am on about!!! Hehe!

    I know I can't help much but I will help as much as I can even if it is just making tea!!!

    i will certainly help even if it means coming down for the weekend and pitching a tent. And i do mean to sleep in. Jp has given me loads of advice and in a short period of time i have a lot of respect for him. So you can have as much time as i can muster up. and money if i ever get my car repaired.

    This is great to see guys, I take my hat off to each and every one of you 1000 Euro in less than an hour is amazing

    Its a shame its always shit situations like this that bring out the best of the club but it goes to show this is still the No1 club to be part of

    Glad jp is ok, just hope you guys can find a worthy shell

    Lads, I didn't get past the first paragraph of this thread when I burst into tears & couldn't stop for a long while - the realities of what happened yesterday finally kicked in. I'm overwhelmed by all your kindness & generosity, I couldn't believe it when I read it, thank you thank you thank you! I'm absolutely gutted about Shirley, all the near-sleepless nights, early mornings, trying to keep it a secret, the disappointment about not making the RR-day, and finally the ecstasy of having her out on-track only to have no brakes coming down the main straight after red-lining 3rd gear @ 8000rpm and heading straight off the track into the armco.

    Flashbacks of Sylvia's demise only last March flew threw my head as I was heading towards the wall uncontrollably - it's beyond scary when you know what's about to happen.

    I really can't thank any of you enough folks, I'm sorry for all of you who've helped me in the last 2 months build & rebuild & get Shirley running only for this to happen. I nearly feel like I've cheated some of you out of all your work to be honest, it was far too short-lived. From what Stiv & Nelly have told me though a good bit of the car is still usable but at this stage my head's still all over the place & I can't figure out what's going on or what to do next. Forgive me if my access is a bit sporadic over the next few days.

    Oh, & the injuries were lower ribs on the left-hand-side some muscles are possibly torn, a large scrape down the back of my right leg from jumping over the armco after running from the car (instinctive reaction), and finally lumbar (middle) part of my back & neck are both sore but I've got a good few mates who are massage therapists & a physio to help get the physical side of me back on-track!

    Again, thank you thank you thank you to all of you for this! I really don't know what to say except that.
