I was hoping RKCLODHOPPER was gonna wheel it out and use it. After just one run at the test day and only being a Gnats gooley behind the regular pilot, methinks he has a natural talent for this 'ere competing lark.

Hotel / pub now booked for the RR family in broad chalke village.
Some sort of meal meet up booze up to be arranged for the sat night ?

Agreed on the RK front. He's got enough time invested In that SS1 that i think a double drive is only fair. Was certainly going well straight out of the box. Be nice to have a father son team where the youngster doesn't do all the winning!

I presume the finals from the site are all we need. No emailed passes etc. ?

My spam filter has really been a nusiance this year, near enough hooked out every bloomin' set of event details emailed to me!

GTE's leading the way again :)

Seriously though, thanks to all attending compies for a great weekend of banter, serious competing and camaraderie. The scims really do hold their heads up high against more well esteemed / recognised marques

Thank you for the pictures. The hill is very two dimensional. Initially as quick as you dare to go then incredibly steep and curvy. Found that bit very difficult and even managed an uphill spin.

The picture with the louch's GTE going away from you, that is 85 - 95 mph
