Live timing here.

The heavens opened for our first practice (class F3) so very slippy!

Just looked at the times.

I think you are running the new layout whereby you don't take the final RHander down the main straight :?: Are you bailing out left before then :?: If not we were very slow last October :)

A great day overall and apart from the end of the first practice, it stayed dry (the heavens opened as I left and again an hour later in Gloucester!)
