    I'm taking the last day off today. I'm fit again but had to wrestle a difficult customer and his mechanic for almost 4 hours in the cold, gonna spend the evening with a tea in bed, better save than sorry. At least he took the car :).

    See you on sunday, old chaps. Please vote it to quali tonight.

    Despite limited attendance, this was still jolly good fun!

    R1 was not a great success for me personally, as I struggled with the RHD cars, crashed twice, and got a front tyre puncture twice :confused:. So after I'd limped into the pit a second time, apparently my mechanics were out of fresh tyres, as they refused to service my car no matter what I tried; I ended up retiring from R1 (or maybe I forgot their paychecks last month:unsure:)

    R2 more than made up for it though: I was informed that there certainly were LHD cars available and the reason I couldn't find one turned out to be that I was in the wrong car: Mistakenly I'd picked a Ford Lotus Cortina instead of a Lotus Ford Cortina :confused::O_o: And as a bonus this one turned out to be more powerful and lighter too :)

    I think both Sven and Allan agreed to take a full load of gas and a weight penalty, or something like that, as we all stayed pretty close together throughout most of the race, with quite a lot of position swaps on this narrow track!
    Despite the limited numbers, I truly enjoyed this race; If only they could all be this much fun!:thumbsup:

    Thanks all racers, thanks to Denis for setting up the event, sorry to all who couldn't make it here. CU soon!

    Agree.... it was a good time....I did find that I had to work hard to keep the Cortina from sliding into the hard barriers on some of those tight corners. Cheers to all drivers ... thanks to Denis for the events.
