Scimitar Prescott record is over 1.5s faster, assume Garry beat the aldon record?

Well done Corky on the win.
superb effort from Josh to post that time in what is essentially an off the boil stock 1800ti!

Were the Continental's sidewalls found to be quite grippy?! LOL

With regard to the comparitive times / theoretical scores from the April runs. On a short course / flat out track like Aintree, the handicap does not level the game up for all, the factoring simply doesn't counter the power difference for low vs high.
