Word of warning. There is a new piece of tarmac on the exit of orchard which appears to be a bit slippy.

Well done fellas.

That should put you in front of me now Phil when you drop a score.

Sorry I couldn't join you this year...... Note to self "don't sell your bloody car before the end of the season".... "and if you do, make sure the next one is ready" :hand:

25 points for Phil, and 18.93 for Peter ( in fairness Peter is well down of power without an intercooler)

Great day, great company and a challenging course! My second timed run was interrupted by a low oil pressure warning. I now suspect (hope!) that it is a wiring fault but wont be able to check till later in the week. Special thanks to Richard Carter for manhandling the gazebo back to my car!

And thanks also to you Peter for bringing the compie gazebo in the first place, made for a much more comfortable day with that shelter.

Weather was a bit iffy in places but for an Autumn event I think we did well with most runs on a dry track.

I was pleased to go straight out and beat last years (wet) time of 64.something seconds. P2 was a bit rough and ready with a whee edging off at Ettore's and an uncomfortable slide onto outer curbs in the esses.
Tidying it up a bit after lunch to crack the 60 second barrier for T1 was very satisfying, and then a smidge quicker for T2. Still a lot to learn at Prescott, I need to stop turning in early and there are some better lines to be had for sure.

Only had the camera on for the final run, last blast of the season :cry:

Good effort. With all the trees up the back the track is always slippery there
