Maybe we should just merge class 2 and 3...

Aside from sharing our general concern for the health of the competitor that crashed, I had rather mixed emotions on hearing the event was cancelled. Having shown spectacular ineptitude by spinning 3 times in succession at the same kink and ending up to varying degrees in the same gravel trap, I am rather pleased that the event is expunged from club history from a selfish perspective *woohoo*. 

However, Charlotte had smashed her previous record and was clearly ahead in our 'in car battle', and with the rain, she would have ended up the winner if we had carried on - a first! On that front I am rather sad that it was canceled .. Whistle

Well done to all who broke their records, even if they do not count..

Had it not been for a prior commitment at Croft I would have popped down to Harewood , as it is a venue I enjoy very much. So what on earth happened? The Harewood website refers to structural damage to an adjacent building , which can only be the farmhouse, or one of its outbuildings  ....

I assume the MSUK competitor third party insurance will cover the cost of building repairs!

Philip, amazing run! So gutted that your win was not recorded officially, but we have all recorded it.  Can I see your video now please?

Also, nobody actually said what Tony’s magical video was about? Was it something depraved you were trying to get away from?

John - I only saw / heard the aftermath but a Wolesly Hornet (of all things) some how went straight ahead  into the recticel barriers on the left hand side going through farmhouse, bounced off onto the otherside.  Not sure which wall was in such a way as make it unsafe.

Not heard about the driver - hope all well.

Phil

Looks like I am adding my hearty congratulations on a stunning first run from what is increasingly my normal place towards the back of the pack.

Anyway a fine reward for all the time and effort you have put in over the past few years just a shame that it will be expurged from any official recognition although the response on here amply reflects the genuine recognition of your competitors.

Goodwood 2010 remains etched in my memory as I suspect Sundays outcome will for you.

So if you can't beat them ........... wheres the nearest eligibility scrutineer???
