There you go - Foers Engineering Ltd. - manufacturers of the Ibex.

As it happens, Alex of Staffordshire 4x4 and his mate Jon entered my ickle 3,000 mile European Landy Rally event in 2009 as "Team Bright Sparks". Good guys, awesome machine! cheers

Great pictures Tom, Alex's Ibex is currently being re-done, new oil tank, supercharger moved and BIG Jenvey throttle bodies and funky plenum all being re-done...should be done for summer with around 575bhp affraid

Tug, I'm occasionally on arseface, but as a rule I stay off !
At Staffordshire 4x4 full time...kicked the bike trade in the head, though still ride bikes.

Anyway, we now know how to get hold of you. thumbsup

Just wandered by and spotted the photo of Alex's Ibex along with the rest of my family. I remember the Ibex sounded great but didn't enjoy hill climbing (to be fair it was the Stelvio Pass it didn't like). They had to go home early and that photo was taken just as they left to head home.

2009 was a brilliant rally Tom, great group of people ! cheers1

To be fair to Team Bright Sparks, due to the thin air at altitude my 3.9 V8 or Dean's 3.5 V8 weren't happy either. ECU's + thin air = a very sluggish V8. The only one that seemed to be okay was the Overfinch P38 with the Chevy 5.7 V8. Strange that? scratch

Nice to see the ol' roadrunner make an appearance. Yep, I agree, 2009 was a vintage year Landy Rally-wise. Happy days!



































Sorry to hi-jack the thread but the temptation to dig out a few piccies was just toooooooo much! What time is it? 03:44 ... again! BEDTIME ... up at 7:00!!! affraid
