Well done Josh! That continental rubber clearly worked for you.

As already mentioned, last run not my fastest. Indeed my first timed run before lunch was marginally faster. After that I just tried chucking it in harder and as we all know, smoothness is key really.

Good show by all though!

I agree totally Craig. The most important nut in any car is the one behind the wheel.

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