Hi Phil

Have now put 300 miles on your dizzy without a blip so I`m confident it`s a goodun.
Shall I bring it with me to ensure it don't get damaged.

That would be great Mark. Please make it explicitly clear with any conversation in person that this is a part returning to me and not a fresh acquisition. Only Mrs RR has the sharpest of ears! Is mr Cork still sorting you out with ticket for entry?

Craig, are you suggesting that the mighty 1300 may benefit from a higher level of grip than that which a second hand set of 5 year old Toyos with some 20 events under their belt might afford? I should probably check the weather actually... might need the Falkens on if it's wet.

OK so Josh's Ti has been weighed (920kg) and had a dyno run (131 bhp).

Continental premium contact 5's have been fitted.

A few minor bits to do and it's ready for Sunday :)

I'm hoping that I don't repeat that. I even went off around there in sunshine the following year. I don't hold out much hope for good score here, just staying on the tarmac will be a good result :lol:

Perhaps some drugs and a visit to Cheshire ?

Yes I have the gazebo and will have space to bring it as we don't have any spare wheels to bring.

Corky; I'll bring some black bags for the grass cuttings :wink:

Cracking day at Harewood today. The weather was very kind to us !

A new personal best for me, regarding staying on the black stuff :mrgreen:

Times for the final run as follows :-

Me No.37 70.79
Josh No.40 72.97
Phil No.39 78.19
Peter N.38 78.55

I think these were the "bests" for everyone, but will check the results list tomorrow.
