and the clutch is goosed.
Given you did about a season's worth of full throttle time over a weekend, I'm not surprised!

The whole hill has been resurfaced; maybe it will be less slippy in the wet :?:

I was running brand spanking new hard compound Kumhos. I may as well have had Chinese ditch finder specials, they had zero grip. I didn’t even get the release agent off them :lol:
Amateur mistake :mrgreen: :lol:

So we'll be needing the club gazebo then?
I am afraid I have the gazebo but I am not going! If anyone goes past Birmingham on the way they are welcome to pick it up.

New tarmac in the wet ooooooooooo- Remember Craig and Ben in the wet there. Think they halved their times when it dried.

Before "Cork'y corner". Second right hander at the bottom of the hill :roll: Went to turn in and the back end overtook me and I ploughed through the grass and flappy barriers.

At this point I should be able to show you a video which was taken; which however did not save due to problems with the remote :evil:

I can confirm that the new tarmac is pretty slippy in the wet. I saved myself from an embarrassingly low points score by a much better and "braver" T2.
