Nice one! I bet you didn't expect to be taking pots home with you when you bought it, and battling for the 25points from Trevor. How much faster do you need to go to be a championship contender?

I like the little wave at the beggining lol!

I had thought Shelsey was miles up north, but it's actually only about 3hrs away, which isn't bad for a southern compie.

Nice one Craig; I particulaly like the "Come On" up the staight and "Yesssssss" at the top :lol: :lol:

Has anyone read the programme summary of our class. I quote:-

The Scimitar GTE's are very quick and powerful but the dark horse here is the SS1 turbo of Stephen Cork :lol: :lol:

Can I suggest a change of user name to Dark Horse :mrgreen: :lol:

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

You're quickly back in "hooligan" mode then! Good, innit!
Very impressed, no dramas or crisis, just rapid considered progress.
Done yer bit for public relations too, cute little wave to yer fans from the start line, you hero!
Nice run, not surprised at yer reaction after the chequered flags. Regards from the bakery truck wheel waggler.

Ha ha.... I haven't seen that. Just shows how wrong they were :lol:

I made steady progress throughout the day, but made mistakes on every run. Especially braking too early for the esses. I'm happy with my first crack at Shelsley though, even though my personal target was to get into the 36's. The main thing was, the time came down on every run :D
Nice one, love the in-car commentary.

That engine really is sweet. It's amazing that it's essentially the same engine as mine has but it's got a whole Essex V6 more :lol:

I've got some in car and some video of Trevor & John off the line. I'll post them up if I get some time later. Busy doing Son's birthday stuff ATM. I really should go outside and get all the cow-shi£ off my trailer and car :wink:

Paul
Setups getting better each event, always gonna be overpowered but at least its less scary now.

I was very surprised how quick it is over the line, I was hoping to crack 100mph but couldnt stop the rears lighting up out of top Esse so could never get the power down cleanly

Nick
Claire had takn the boys to the starline viewing area and they were waving like crazy!

To be fair, th cars not competitive on handicap I was lucky that shelsley suited the car. I think im about 1s to 1.5s off Trevors pace in general
