Seeing as Bill hasn't replied I'll give my view.

Arrived at 8.30 only to be told to sign on at 9.15. Drivers briefing was at 9.45 and first on track was 10am.

Did 3 practice runs and 2 timed runs before lunch. A couple of minor incidents including a silver BMW which exploded next to the main caravan.

After lunch another 3 practice runs and 2 timed sessions. A bike engined Mini broke the main drive chain on track causing Bill to announce this via megaphone. Finished at 3.30 and then had free play time until 4pm.

There was a Scooby there which was quickest on track. There was also a Rover 216 GTi which was 0.1 seconds behind it. He said it only had 120bhp but handling was amazing.

Still waiting for timing sheet...

Why do I need to reply, you are the Mini drivers, I am only the clerk of the course, since when does the COC do event reports?

water pipe came off water on hot exhaust, hardly a blow up and it did not delay anyone.

This is a regular happening at these events but if you are offended I will stop it.

As usual the times were all displayed on the notice board, did you not think to take a picture of them?

By the way everyone Kev newton has "Finally" got his pictures online so feel free to have a look. That is unless you have lost the card I gave out at the last event.

I sent Kev an email he has not replied yet, I think this first lot was a taster to show what he could do and in future was going to sell cds Possibly on the day.
He was restricted on his first event as he was marshalling but next time he wont be so he can go all over.
Mind you it is nearly 3 weeks since the event surely you should have looked earlier next thing you will be asking me for the times that were posted on the notice board till the end of the day.

No Idea re Nick and Mark but feel free to send them an email and ask them.
You must have their email from previous years, surely

Bloody Minis.

Try reading the regs before you turn up then, It might help. Or perhaps you should stick to Javelin.

And this too, a dig at me again...

Regs and entry forms sent out this evening, not really my job, like track day reports but hey ho that's the kind of guy I am.
Anyway if anyone does not get said regs etc. you cannot be on my list so please pm me with your email addy and I will forward it on (even though its not my job) mind you certain people might get missed out, depends what sort of mood I'm in.
Please note the regs do not allow highly flammable fleece jackets as a fire retardant clothing, just thought I might mention that in case somebody thinks otherwise, I know, I know nobody would be that stupid.
I would just like to say that all this is beyond banter now. I was on track every session on time and you had me wait whilst everyone else had gone out, up to 15 mins in one case. This happened on 5 out of the 10 times I went out. This is quite obviously a personal issue now so it has made my decision not to attend easier.

You keep quoting me about reading the regs. I hadn't seen a copy until I messaged you, after the June event. When I joined last year I thought it would of helped you with my email address on the form or sending them via a PM...

Oh well, I hope Javelin will have me...
