Many thanks,
Chris and Richard
Chris – 10L for a 12 lap dry race )plus warm-up and red flag contingency) is a bit marginal. However the BBC Forecast for Saturday is now for heavy rain, so you should use less fuel in the wet

Gemma, have you been doing your rain dance again

Thanks Steve, you're right it will be close.

If BBC says rain then I'd leave the rain tyres at home - I've given up with them!! Weather.com says cold but dry for Saturday...

... oh dear, just looked at the Met, better take the wets after all:

Gemma car got the potentail i think she got more ability than she gives herself credit for.
My poor car needs me to fit my new swifty unit but i wanted to keep for next year.
I reckon it must be Geralds turn to win. I will keep my fingures crossed for him.

Less cost if you run only 3 tyres!
I got 3 new fronts, the rears seem ok.
Chris have you got wets or are you on minicross tyres like me?

BBC now saying light showers, I think it's going to be another one of those Lydden days where the tyres get swapped a lot.

I'll bring my wheel gun and race jack in case anyone needs a hand
