There is a regional event being run by Euan Kidd, who has sent us this information:
I am now getting details of this years Classic car event in Chearsley Bucks, on Sunday 13th September. Last year we had an excellent “Ad Hoc” attendance and it is at lovely spot on a village green in Chearsley Village, which is close to Aylesbury and in the Chiltern Hills.
As we did last year I suggest that those who are able to attend plan an arrival for about 11:00am (ish) and we will form up as a group to enjoy the day, which includes a Spitfire flypast and a short display (Beat Up) during the afternoon – last year was a Hurricane display – wonderful.
If the situation changes I will inform everybody as appropriate.
We thought it worth while letting you know of a potential issue related to our cars. You may have read in the national press about a Crossfire that set on fire shortly after the owner purchased it. Coincidentally one of our committee members had spotted an issue with the fuel line on his car. We are passing on this information from Karl Edmondson.

Given the fact a Crossfire suddenly caught fire due to a fuel problem it may be worth checking your cars. All you need to do is jack up the rear offside wheel, take off the wheel then you can check the lines all around the fuel pump and filter. Don’t just look at the lines feel the lines for signs of any wear.
UK Crossfires Club
All paperwork has been received by the circuit and we have booked and paid for 20 cars. Anyone wishing to go on the circuit can book online at £25 or pay £40 on the day. Crash helmet and long sleeved top required.
Entry £13.00p. This will be great day and we will be able to participate in the short hill climb section if you're brave enough.
With the Chrysler Crossfire going out of production the question of the availability of spare parts was bound to come into question. Indeed, body panels, trim, interior parts and mechanical components were never easily obtainable from dealers when the cars were still in the showroom. We now hear of instances where Crossfires are being written off due parts shortages and the exorbitant cost of any items having to be obtained abroad. As the Chrysler Dealerships lost interest in the car, stocks of new spares has dwindled; over the last few years much has been disposed of through eBay etc; some bargains were found for anyone wanting to store parts for possible future use.
