Just as well you never made the effort Stevie. I left Dundee in sunshine, but over in Fife the roads just got wetter the closer to Crail I got. The strip itself was very damp and in particular the start line. I waited around 2 hours to see if it would dry, but no chance. Only cars making a reasonable go of it were the usual Audi RS's. So that's it for the year as there was no way I'd attempt a pass in less than bone dry. I tried a very slight blip of the throttle in the car park and it just spun immediately as i'd thought it would.

Last event is in 2 weeks is it not ? That's the one I was hoping for.

We made it over last year, although weather again wasnt so nice. Dry for early part of day, but rained around lunch. Always a risk though

Runner up for the second year in the RWD category at Crail raceway. Just pipped by a bumper width by the ariel atom I've beaten 5 times before.
My times were consistent though, but no 11's yet:
