The weather progressively got worse. I think I was fastest in practice! Everyone got a damp first run, then some people did a wet second run before it was abandoned.

I feel your pain.......

Sounds like you got your two practice and one timed run? Little compensation if none of it counts due to the abandonment though...

I see that there was only 1 practice and 2 timed runs....presumably based on the weather forecast :?:

Anyways Nick Keyser take the 25 as the only SSSC runner in attendance.

So the SSSC Championship hinges on the last event Castle Combe on 20th October. If Josh takes the 25 he wins the championship with max points, If Nick takes the 25 he wins the Championship on "head to head count back" (points even on max points). If anyone else takes the 25 Josh takes the championship as he already has max points before Combe and Nick doesn't.

Well held, Nick!

Sorry I wasn't able to be there to see you in action, but I had a prior commitment to a classic car run to Brooklands with Southern Classics - and that was wet too :roll:
