The 2012 Kolkata Statesman Vintage & Classic Car Rally
The 2012 edition of the Kolkata Statesman Vintage & Classic Car Rally is to be held on Sunday, January 8, 2012.
As usual the day of scrutiny by the judges will be the day before, Saturday the 7th and this is the best time in my opinion to check out the cars in detail.
This time around, the winter has been one of the coldest in 10 years, so during the time of judging, (which is normally from 9 or 10 in the morning onward) the day temperature should be pleasant.
The struggle will be on the rally day. Cold cold early mornings are not what I look forward to and for those taking part, the cars have to struggle as much to get out their slumber:D (Unless it warms up by then).
Suggest those who are taking part and are reading this, if your car has a priming lever on the fuel (AC) pump, prime it until you feel less resistance then stop. That way, the carb/s will already have adequate fuel. For those of you who's car's don't have this, use the choke; it's useful on a cold morning.
Hope to meet some members on either or both of these days.
I'll be there on both days, with a car.
