Not good now I'm afraid.  It seems the current custodian of the car has no plans to take it to Oulton this weekend, which means not only am I the holder of £250 worth of spectator tickets, I can't get the engine out of it to transfer into the Blue car.  This also pushes my next available race to Mar 2016.  I won't say anymore as I will appear very unprofessional.

My entry is now in for this race, and has been accepted Very Happy

In true High Speed Low Cost tradition, I got it in before ED's entry so I can use number 12, which was our team number at the Heritage relay cheers

I've requested the car be delivered to Snett for me.  Let's see if I get better service than I did for Oulton.

Good news. Money found under the cat litter tray.

Bad News. Operations Manager has sentenced me to rescue a failing business area.

Having spent 2 years being ignored as some sort of ex Army phsyco' that should not be let loose on sensitive little idle failures.
I am now the first choice go get em problem solver.

Ego sorted.

But no bloody racing

Hi Ian

No have not been out RallyCrossing for 3 years since I ran in the British Championship.
I did a few rounds of circuit racing with the RAFMSA in the Saab powered BMW MINI.

I decided to restor the old Rallycross classic Mini and have been sprinting it at Blyton in the MiniCross Drivers Association Sprint championship, and this year I won the Mini class.

Not sure what I am going to do next year, but am really glad Billy contacted me regards the new forum/club Smile Lots of opportunity's now.

Good to have you on board Neil Very Happy

Were looking at having the first event of next season at Blyton in April with the Mini-cross Assoc. I believe they do a 2.7 mile course, which should be really good.

As you have some experience of the course, what do you think of it?

Hi Billy

Blyton does have a 2.7 mile sprint track which has a bit of everything with high speed sweeping corners, long straights and a technical interconnecting section linking the 2 laps together this allows plenty of places where time can be won and lost.

Blyton park has a few facility's including a club house that serves food, toilets and showers.
Camping is available but normally at a extra cost.

The last 2 years the Mini-Cross Divers Association have been running their Sprint championship at Blyton, it has been growing in popularity due to the friendly atmosphere and extra timed runs when possible.

I've been let down again with respect to the car. I won't be joining you for this one.

The paddock plan timetable and finals have been issued for a while now, and the entry list has just been released in the last half hour. They can all be found at:

http://www.msvracing.com/cars/calendar.aspx

Theres 31 cars on the grid for the allcomers race with a great mix of cars. We have Neil Wade, Paul Waterhouse and myself entered.

The weather is not looking too good for Saturday at the moment, so fingers crossed for an improvement as I want to get the Mk2 below 2:20.0

Good luck to everyone, after spending a day in A&E after one of my subcontractors decided to try to trim his finger nails with a hedge cutter!, so make sure you keep safe out there (and keep warm!)

Oh and have fun Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
