i have successfully returned home, was good fun (just need to sort some cones out for next year ;))

i can safely say that i now have achy arms (however that is preferable to what the alternative could have been...)

cheers to Chris, James, Matt, Josh and any others i might have forgotten for helping diagnose my steering issues.
Thanks, Stu

Just got back. The route home was the most fun that I've had in the PZ since swapping the engine. Trust the car to behave in front of you lot...

Thanks to Dan for hosting. Definitely worth waiting for the weather.

Cheers to Chris for the supercharged taster session. Makes me want to pull my finger out and get REW swapping...

Thanks to Dan for hosting today and to James, Alan and Dan for your positive comments after driving RR54. However one of I think has removed something from the car because on the drive home the knock did not occur once which really surprised me. Will it return?
Good to chat with everyone and I presume by now those remaining are considerably merrier as the shots were appearing when I departed.

Very good session again Dan. Sorry I had to leave so early. Hopefully a few more showed after aswell. I had a horrendous drive back with the Tractors everywhere, i was behind 5 seperate ones on the A41 alone. Constant ques and the RX8 spent most of its time overtaking on the otherside of the road. Much dinosaur burned, however i did manage a 1.54 per litre refuel in Grindley Brook which made up for it.

Thats just the hassle of being so old these days. :'(

Had a great weekend as usual. :D Much cider was consumed and Christine was only lightly bullied. :p Look forward to next years. :)

I take it the risk of being sick was not from Dans cooking?
