I got in at the last second after emailing Bruce on Saturday :D

I see Michael Bell is in class B3 his SS1 Ti - he always correctly enters specialist production, despite not having a chance against the cars like the Westfield Superbusa he’s up against next weekend. He’s also a marshal at many events.

Amazing day today, I did a 52 something last year, so PB on every timed run :D

I think another couple of seasons and I’ll have the esses nailed, then just the last corner to work on getting round without disappearing in a cloud of clutch and tyre smoke :D

The final results are going to be close I think - probably only a few points between the first four in CM and SSSC? Goodwood will be the deciding event I think, and only Nick in a Scimitar (is anyone doing Combe)?

They closed the entry for Pegasus Sprint so I wasn’t able to get in, we are away for Goodwood :cry:

Yep, I missed out on Combe too - hence the last minute Wiscombe. I wasn’t the only one, we had half a row of naughty boys that had begged Bruce for a place after the closing date :P

I emailed Pegasus asking if there was a reserve list but haven’t had any response (unlike Bruce who replied late last Sunday night after getting back from Wiscombe).

Congrats to Jim on the 25pts, and for getting below 50sec - Flying! I'd have needed a low 46 to match that! :shock:

Such a great venue especially when the suns out; always enjoy Wiscombe even it it was a but frustrating ending on 47.95s, compared to last years 47.53s with less power! :roll:

In car to follow, hopefully later in the week.

Finally downloaded the video from wiscombe, not my fastest run, 48.27sec, but this was the most eventful;



The thud at 00:15 is me hitting the wall :roll:

No matter what i did I just couldnt get the speed on through the top section - second gear 40mph wheel spin @ 00:23sec.
