Other than that looking good my friend!

Well what a day ,ended up 4th in class (10 cars in class )
Very pleased with how car ran and more important how it handled , so responsive and so much feed back , just gutted now that I hadn't fitted my second set of wheels with sticky Avons on I was only half a second off of 3rd place , and to go home with a pot 1st time out would of been handy .
But it doesn't bother me , I'm not that competetive oh no no no :banghead: :banghead:

I wondered why I didn't recognize the venue - never been to Crystal Palace. Looks nice enough apart from bike-unfriendly Armco and tree trunks. Have you got a GoPro video of a lap to see what it looks like? Well done.

Don't like to see stickers in the line of sight though. They can easily cause a "Sorry mate, didn't see you," prang, with me as the projectile....
