Room for one* more in that garage? Brings it down from the indivisible 3 way split to a £25 share :wink:

Entry just made online, ticket number 57 (doesn't allow for postals ofc) , so hopefully not full and will be accepted no problem.

*one car, one white boy with dreadlocks, one long suffering wife, one small shouty thing.

Tent?

Sod that. We from down South do things civilized. Four walls and central heating please.

I can pack some extra guy ropes to stop you strange outdoorsey types being blown away in the night if you like?

Well I'm pretty certain I can't make it. I am gutted as for me its by far and away my favourite sprint. 30th Wedding anniversary is taking priority this year and bank of dad is now supplementing an old school family holiday in Italy in July complete with grown up daughters in attendance at the request of wifey so for me Ty Croes is a £500, 1100 miles 4 day event which would mean one of the daughters not attending the holiday so i'm too sure that would go down well. unless of course I don't go on holiday and come sprinting instead.

Anyways I need to get back in the garage and replace the half shafts instead of sitting here crying into my coffee


Owner of a fantastic se5a (nee 5 speed) that's a bit quick (well, feels like it is!!) and now running on lpg

There's always next year Mikey!

Get the Asbo breadvan fighting fit and we'll see you later in in the season?

I have cleverly classified this event as a HOLIDAY. Thus all is well. Enjoy Italy matey, get fat on pizza and slow yourself down ;-)
