the famous last words " what can possibly go wrong"
The answer. break the o/s rear damper on the M1 just past Sheffield on the way up to Otley.
On the plus side I got to watch the trial with my Mum and Dad and Britannia rescue took me home Monday so I saved a tank of fuel.

Bugger - and probably not standard dampers, so we couldn't have helped out :-(
