How did you get on Allan?
I saw your first run of the afternoon and it looked quick.
We had a walk back round the paddock later on in the day but couldn't see you around. I would have hung around a bit later but it was freezing sat on the banking .

I have a video of your run. I'll try and get round to uploading it later in the week.

It went well
fastest mini on the day
fastest in class there were two of us but the car I was up against was a race car (a vision) with 280bhp he had just spent 7000 last week on the engine I beat him by 1/2 a sec.
my times were 56.92 - 59.18 in practice the second run was wet
the race runs were 54.29 - 53.46
I dont think a Honda mini could get near these times

He wasnt very happy he should have been quicker his spanner man reckons he has had a few lap records in the past and should have beat me easy.
Its the same motor as mine but very trick and runinng methanol with a couple more laps I reckon he would thrash me.
Allan
Ps he has only had the car a week.

So will Mr Hoose be competing next year in order to beat the scooter??

There is a rumour going round that he might....so maybe he should be wary of who he insults

Not sure Daisy. Mrs Hoose would have an Ertha Kit after the last crash, but I'll think about it long and hard, I promise. I've got a very radical plan for my XE over the next 12 months anyhow so I can insult Allan if i like, he'd never catch me once it's complete. I'll hopefully pop along to 1 or 2 of the meets this year and have a nosey. Never raced four wheels BTW.
