Harewood Hillclimb a very odd day.

I would like to say a surprised thank you to my fellow competitors  for the enthusiastic congratulations given when I  finally manage to string a quick time together today, and then again for their reaction when it was disallowed and purged from the record due to the unfortunate accident which closed the meeting, (my best wishes to that competitor and hopefully minor injuries from a very heavy accident.) I would also thank Tony my arch rival who on getting within a few tenths of my previous time, generously shows me his in car video, which with Dan Malkins previous evenings coaching , shows me that I,m doing it all wrong and allows me to go a second faster!!! A fine example of the spirit of competition that  Tony  is renowned  for , Many thanks  to all ,and be assured this example may encourage me to shed my Dick Dastardly persona !! And become a more upright member of our society. (Maybe!!)

Philip (Dastardly) Matchwick.

A well deserved win with an excellent time! It might not be official, but even if we’d of got another run the rain would of meant nobody was likely to go faster!

It was a cracking run Philip and such a shame that it doesn't count in the annals of the Club.  I am humbled that such exalted members will still speak to the likes of me.  Well done again.

Philip,

You have convinced us all (and I hope yourself) that you are the man to beat, well done. I look forward to chasing your times from now on,

Robert

It was and will remain a truly great run Phil and a truly well deserved victory whatever occurred following the run.

However - Coaching for Tony will now be issued with a non-disclosure agreement!

I look forward to Curborough where we now expect more of the same!

Ok

I cant let this one go without comment.

It was a fantastic run and should I think serve  as  lesson to us all of the dangerous law  of unexpected consequences. 

When I volunteered to share my video with Phil I could have had no idea of the disastrous results. (it never crossed my mind that my vid would do anything but slow him down or make him laugh)

Never ever ever again !!!!!!!!!!!!!

However hope springs eternal and I will be back at Curbs with secret video and a great determination to catch up Driving 

As for the spirit of the thing, forget it, gloves off anything goes from now on.

No more Mr Nice  Getmecoat

But, sort of seriously.

Well done Phil, really couldn't be more pleased for you!!

Your one time arch rival

Tony Dastardly from now on!!!

Class 3 is always exciting to watch, and getting more so.

With MANDATORY and AUTOMATIC promotion of the Class 2 champ, it will be even better with Clive M joining the fight next season...
