I've removed the snow plough attachment from the DET as it looks like it will be dry and possibly even sunny on Saturday :shock:

Much nicer there since it was re-surfaced. More grip, and an easier line into Quarry.

Good luck to all and fingers crossed edge weather's gonna be as good as it looks :-)

It’s always great to see you Craig, but it’s a looong way to come and spectate so I don’t blame you. You need to stop turning up without the car too..... :wink:

I’ll post the link for the live timing.

Josh however, I’ll see you tommorow. :twisted:
