Good to catch up with some old friends and new faces.
God I miss the sport - I even had my in date skid lid in the boot !

Thank you to Trevor for the entry tickets to the event - I appreciated the kind gesture.

Nick,

Happy to oblige. Will email Terry so etching in the next week or so and will try to remember to sort who's doing what after Ty Croes.

I'm generally happy to write if someone else looks after photos.

Thanks Trevor, will send him photo's

Joking aside I thought your second run demonstated your experience with your new tyres and dodgy clutch problems - nice one :wink:

Interesting Vids Steve; very impressed that you did not swear when the cable went :lol:

Interesting to see the selection of gears used on the corners on each run; thought it was just me who couldn't decide what to use :wink: :lol:

Yeah, choosing between 2nd and 3rd was the difference in grip and the speed I could carry into the corner. I was experimenting a bit ready for the banzai run which of course only partially happened.
