Amazed but she is still holding together well . I was on a really good lap today but got held up by backmarket on last corner . Anyway P4 on grid tomorrow . We have 3 races tomorrow and 2 on Sunday . I will report innagain tomortow .
Lydden,what a circuit,at least its the only one without the dreaded safety fencing.I've mostly been there for the bikes over the years and ovcourse the rallycross.Its certaibly improves recently having been there but I thibk its lost some of its attraction of raxing there though.I may be wrong.😁

Fingers crossed! Have you been for a swim, as you’re so close to the sea? Is it called Southern Ocean or South Pacific Ocean? Bit different to our North Sea....

The pictures I saw from Iain's car, at least the Danish blue one, show an action cam. Will you make some video? From the race I mean, not the swim!!

Morning Gerard . I am sure those who are close to me are having histericle laughter . I do not own a dash cam and would not have any idea how to work it or upload any film .Sorry to disappoint you . There are some good photos on the FJ face book page of me under car as she is hanging on the crane from up at Teratonga. Not allowed on the beech Mike . It’s shut at moment , they say due to bacteria .

Morning Iain! Yes of course I'm disappointed, thought it was an action cam! Not many solutions to find whether its my computer or my eyes… or the symptom of you driving "all balls out"! Just out of my curiosity how do they manage to close a beach over there? They put the sand upside down?

A different story for me sadly, mystery problem still unsolved meant poor qual and only 1 lap in each of the 3 races, pointless trying to keep up when it won't rev over 6k and splutters out of every corner but is annoyingly fine in the paddock. Team Delta has now replaced everything in fuel system, ignition, even the manifold gasket so we'll see what the morning brings. Remind me why I do this......?!!!

Colin, its part of the game, we all do that for fun. And beer… Remember the Latin version for fighting spirit.: Numquam admittere clade!

Ah, but perhaps that's not the whole story of the coil!
