Corky was feeling a little wired after 3 red bulls and a banana, so whipped off the rocker covers and polished the insides, each to their own i guess!

Everydays a school day though, apparently 'winging it' is known as a 'dynamic risk assessment' in Cheshire. Learn summat everyday trackside ;-)

Great to see BC and have the banter, great fella but one not designed to be a spectator bless him! Get the bakery truck ready for Curbs or else mate! 8)

Good to meet Mike and Mrs Mike, Lukeys mate with the Fiesta who was marshalling 8), Benc popped along and couple of other scimitar owners who came across and made themselves known, thanks for making a good day even better :-)

It looks like he's asking for a tip in that photo above :lol:

Seriously though, thanks BC. Your help was appreciated, and I think we managed to ensure the oil stayed inside the rocker box. And make it nice shiny in the process... :mrgreen:

Just watched my in car video from the final run...... What a numpty :lol: :oops:

If only I could've pieced together the best bits from runs two and three :lol:

Hi all, had a crackin' day at Harewood yesterday with loads of good craic, banter, sun burn etc. Didn't feel comfortable with no car to run but eventually felt right at home getting me fingers filthy tinkering wi' a pointy, had nowt t' do wi' the high speed finish applied to the inside of a cover thingy, nice to meet Mike Heatherington and his lady who used to be another regular at the York noggin decades ago. Saw the most expensive car crash ever when a beautiful Aston Martin DB something took a disliking to the bales immediately before the finish line, not a straight panel left on the near side and the door drop light smashed too. The driver was unhurt but benefitted from some gentle counselling from the marshals! Well done to the three Steves, Josh, John and Deft Waltzer for puttin' up wi' a compie sufferin' severe withdrawal symptoms. Had a good journey home with loads of people looking at the Coupe wondering what it was, see yer at Curbs, Crusty.
