Quite a list of failures this year :shock:

Mine self inflicted :oops:

Ben rear trailing arm failure

Cosworth wouldn't start.

Top day! A whole day on the track and didn’t break anything!

Shame my trailer lights decided to fail on the way home. At least the Boy Scout in me had packed a trailer board so made it home ok.

Thanks to all for the support, encouragement and advice! See you at Gursdon for those going!

En excellent day, thanks Peter.

Learn't a bit more about lift off oversteer :oops: but I think I was getting the hang of it by the end.
