Hovis - "with nowt taken owt"

Thankfully this is true for the Rennwagens, as whilst the mighty Hovis has been sold it hasn’t been taken owt of the Club's ownership. The lucky new owner is existing Rennwagen member Steve Milward. Many will know Hovis from its awesome performances on the strip at the hands and mechanical know how of previous owner kev Donlon and powered by a 2332 turbo powerhouse, he waged war with this savage bus resulting in a pb of 14.3sec 1/4 mile.
Hovis currently runs a more modest John Walklett rebuilt 1776cc mota, and Steve's plan for 2012 is to simply enjoy using it. However its not inconceivable that Hovis might make an appearance on the strip later in the year, borrowing the 2165cc IDA'd mota from Steve's Cal Looker.
Its worth noting that the bus was originally imported into the UK buy founding Rennwagen Club member Jamie Palmer.
