Here's a link to the entry list:

I'll be watching / photographing on the Saturday -probably as it passes through the North York Moors on the approach to Osmotherley (combine it with a hike on the Moors).

Hopefully not AYL 3 as was stopped by the side of the road earlier - it was gone when I went back past half an hour later - hopefully fixed or recovered back up to Pace

You will be pleased to know itís not AYL which is now going very well and I understand stopped by the side of road needing final sorting.
Previous owner decided you could change gear at about 6500 revs and knackered engine so itís rebuilt for Scotsman.
The problem is magnified by people not understanding the gearboxes which should be treated like s switch and it tends to weld the bands together when they are slipped at 5000 plus revs for long periods.Pre selects were way ahead of their time but people do not listen how they should be used.Captains of Indudtry are not used to be told stuff!

The Alta was going well today. It looked the quickest at Grafton Underwood.

Not a bad debut.
Now see about Donington.
