Excellent. I'm sure you'll leave wondering why you didn't book the full day.
The BBC weather forecast has been varying from the chance of light rain (20% to 30%) to light cloud to sunny spells. Fingers crossed for the latter.

Be an early start tho !!
Fingers are crossed for the weather
Dont know whether to be flattered or intimidated that my little 3a is in with the 6 pot cars including the ever fast Roger McE

Thanks also to the marshals.
It was a dreadfully wet day with rivers running across some parts.
But still had fun and learnt a lot about the car tyres and my limits.
Shared the time with a passenger who had travelled 9 hours to get there !!!
70 odd track miles was fantastic value for money.

Well done for an excellent day - I was only there for a couple of hours to fly the Pringle flag. Alec is very poorly and can only stay awake for half an hour at a time.
Cheerful drivers in spite of the p....g rain !
Julian (TR3A daily driver) took his just rebuilt Mallock out - his son and our long term friends Jeff & Chris had a great day taking it in turn to run it in and get rid of the gremlins. Happy days to come.
I will try and add my video clip of Jeff (TR6 owner) driving it after lunch using my phone.
PS Thanks to all who signed Alec's card !

Here's Julian's Mallock U2 clubman on-track at Castle Combe the other day. Everyone had a blast, despite the weather, and the car ran surprisingly well for the first time on track since 1980. Julian noted earlier today that this would never have happened but for Alec's support, technical advice, and encouragement to do the job properly.
