As I can't see a yellow Coupe (his backup car) in that shot or ARF I can only assume his Lotus made it to the start line?

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

Been following the reports and was sad to hear Richard had 'suspension failure' yesterday. However, by the looks of it he found a garage with welding gear and is now back running, looking forward to tomorrow's report, and their climb up the field!
