Re: Friday

Morning Pete, Ian.
Just bought a pack of apple turnovers, sitting at my desk and stuffing my face. I would like to say that I'm in wind down mode because it Friday, but I've been like this all week ! I love it when the sun is out.

Re: Friday

Cheers Ian, just been talking to a client of mine in Jersey. He's a rally driver running a very nice Civic, seems he turned up at a gravel rally last weekend and only a quarter of the track was on gravel, all the rest was tarmac. He was losing 8 seconds a lap on the wrong tyres and finished mid-field. Most of the other had been on the course before and had the correct tyres. His comment was "at least I finished in one piece"
A few weeks ago he drove in to the side of a granite quarry, ouch !! Had to jig the car to straighten her out.

Re: Friday

Naa, I think it's just turn up and run but most people are familiar with the courses. Looks like he got some duff info. He competes in the annual Jersey rally and normally is top of his class. His Civic is bloody quick and sometime even pushes up on the Scoobies. This is the first year he has run the Civic so still getting used to it I think. I've asked for some pics to post.

Ha ha ha ha ha, I had environmental health on my door in February my neighbour (only the one) had been complaining about my car. They weren't very impressed when I told them that the car had been in storgage since December 110 mile from my home.
Good idea though, might clean the BBQ off tonight and fire it up
