First sprint tomorrow for a long time. So you can guarantee the 8 weeks of sunshine weather will break.

Treloy, local ( 30 miles away !!:) military airfield . Un fashionable but lots and lots of runs. 10 or 11 all in all yestedray.

A monsoon in the morning. Standing water on the track. Etc. Everything soaked.

This was 8am just before the heavens really opened, betwen 9-11

However I had a new replacement heated windscreen fitted last week. I broke my other one refitting my dash. It was brilliant. Much Much better than the heated one i had in previously. cleared the fogggy screen in 2 mins. At least I could see the standing water then.


This was some of the competition. The 350Z was in my class. 400 bhp

This was interesting. Kit car originally made on newquay based on a scooby claimed 800 bhp but that was probably b*ll*x. Still very quick

Did the "EE" stand for Emergency Extraction, when the car is upsidedown?

I'm liking the black roundels.

Wot yoo sayin'?
Marmalade an' burnt toast,
I keep on prayin,
For that flavour the most.

The bread van is deliverin'
The marmalade is sweet,
The toast it's a burnin'
The Scimitar is neat

Or some such-thing, or something, for example, prehaps? Or possibly not, who knows?

M.C flat hat, Whoo!

Mikey, I notice in the photos that you carried the orange dash up over the top, are you getting a lot of reflection off that on to the windscreen?
