Just got back home. I had to make a KFC stop as the pit crew were complaining that they were hungry :lol:

Still mad at myself for cocking up the last run. However I'm chuffed at the time I made up on the rest of the run. Threw away a 65-66 sec time :evil:

Big lock up at turn 1. I'll post the vid tomorrow.

Coupe

That's pretty harsh! A first timer in wet conditions in a light powerful car, he did bloody well believe you me!! Our 2 time champ Josh Oakes in a similar spec car went off a couple of times in the conditions. I'm sure anyone that actually competed there will tell you he did a grand job!!

It did say 74 points for Pete (a typo, one assumes) - now corrected by Nick ;)

Nick, Peter told me he was on C's (although he ran his wet tyres due to conditions I think :?: )

Just caught up with this. Yes I was on Avon XXR (1C) for the timed runs.
Good fun despite the weather!

Now you know I don't knock competitors mate
The score was in the 70's
Thus it was tongue in cheek

Will stay off this section
