Sun is trying to come out here - Nick and I did 79 odd in first practice, James did a low 77 in the skylines first time out (Richard is spannering instead of pedalling today).

First timed run and James is on it with a 71.28, I’m happy with a 78.76 and Nick did a 79.30

Second timed run was slower for most people except for James who did a 70.69 :D

I managed a PB of 78.61 on the third run, James left early after we were held up for half an hour when an mx-5 hit the tyres and Nick did a 79.51.

Well organised as usual and the weather held :D

Nice to see you all and I didn't do a time but did do a 400 mile round trip.... :D :D

Cars looked great and as per the photo, james's twin turbo conversion is very clever. Testament to his (dad's?) engineering :lol: :lol:


Is we sideways yet...
