    TrophyTracker Web Application

    Hey Trophy Community! I hope you don't mind but I've decided to create a separate post for TrophyTracker related updates and information. The project has reached a fair size now (and represents a significant time investment) hence it helps if I can keep all TrophyTracker related 'stuff' in one...

    Trophy Info

    I wasn't sure whether or not to post this as I expect there may be differing views and opinions as to whether or not it's a good thing... Let me explain. This website is a fantastic resource for information pertaining to these awesome little cars. One of the best sections, I feel, is the Trophy...

    Trophy v2.0

    Brand New Mark Fish Trophy Springs

    I bought these brand new Mark Fish Trophy spec springs for my build but, alas, it was never to see the light of day. As a result I am looking to sell them on. They are absolutely mint and this is the first and only time I've opened them - to take a few pics. I would like what I paid for them -...

    Trophys by County

    Inspired by a recent thread elsewhere on this site, let's have a quick poll to see where the majority of the Trophys are located by (UK) county / principal area... EDIT: I was going to do a poll, but I was restricted to only presenting 10 options hence that idea went in the bin. So, just feel...

    Pro-Speed Exhaust System (incl. cat)

    Ongoing upgrade plans mean that my trusty and reliable Pro-Speed exhaust is no longer needed and is up for sale. It's a custom full stainless system that was expertly crafted by Charlie at Pro-Speed, Cardiff, and lived on my RenaultSport Clio 182 Trophy for many happy miles. The system...

    Funding your Trophy...

    We've had a thread about Trophy mileage, and we've had a thread that resulted in some interesting results when enquiring about owners' ages. So... I thought I'd just put it out there and ask what folks do day-to-day to fund their Trophy addiction. Judging by the results from the owners' ages...

    Trophy Tracker

    This is purely an idea at the moment but I was thinking of maybe knocking up some sort of Trophy Tracker system / website? It could rely on community- / owner-provided information to keep the records up-to-date for each of the 500 Trophys that rolled off the assembly line (possibly even the...

    Ok folks... as you may (or may not) know there's a new social media-like platform launching shortly purely for car / petrolheads. It is called DriveTribe and is backed by Clarkson, Hammond and May. It could be very good. At the moment it is invite only (unless you have early access codes) but it...

    A couple of #165/500...

    Here are a couple of videos of my Trophy with the ITB's fitted. Sorry for the dodgy soundtrack on the second video. There was too much wind noise so I put a soundtrack over it. A bad one. LOL! :D Sound test: Sunday drive...

    Clio's at Castle Combe Action Day

    Like many at Castle Combe's Action Day last weekend, we had a very enjoyable day out and made the most of the sunny weather. Our stand was again a mixture of various makes and models but we did have a couple of RenaultSport Clio's on show - including my own Trophy. During the day it was great...

    Wet 'n' windy Autumn Drive

    A friend of ours is soon leaving for distant shores and decided he fancied a final drive out in his DC5 before he goes and the car is sold. Hence, Salem (Black Civic Type-R), myself (Trophy), Moggsy (DC5 owner) and a few other friends all decided to brave the weather and head out for a drive...

    Trophy @ RMC's Club Day

    We recently held our Club Day (which was actually a weekend) and enjoyed what was a thoroughly fantastic time! The weather was decent, the company excellent, and the cars on show very capable and having a lot of fun. (Sadly I was the only RenaultSport there among predominantly Japanese motors)...

    SharkyUK's Trophy

    Well, seeing as the Trophy is very much a keeper I thought I'd start a pictures thread. That way I can keep them all together without starting different threads everytime I wanted to add new pics! :lol: Here are a few recent photos to get the ball rolling, click to enlarge...

    S.Wales Brecon Run - Jan '09 - * Video footage added *

    Here are some photos from Rebel's first outing of 2009 - a run around the Brecon area, South Wales (mixed cars/marques). Despite the poor conditions of late we were blessed with pretty good weather given the time of year. For the majority of the run it was quite pleasant (if a little wet in...

    Sorry to keep bombarding with all the questions of late... :lol: I'm after some more advice and opinions again please. Following a recent trip to the Lake District my partner and I have noticed that the Trophy isn't quite as 'spritely' as usual so I carried out the usual checks (i.e. the...

    Brake Upgrade - Ideas and opinions please

    Hey guys, When I bought my Trophy a year ago the first thing I did was upgrade the brakes (to the little known CRN grooved discs and EBC RedStuff pads). I have to be honest they are actually very, very good (and I got them cheaper as they were part of a group buy in which my Good Lady also...

    I picked up #165 last night... and my girlfriend and I decided to take our cars out earlier this evening to grab a few pictures. Here they are! I'm still grinning having experienced the handling that the Trophy is renowned for. :D Cheers, SharkyUK
