  1. good stuff Stu, looking forwards to seeing it out again Happy days at Thorsby
  2. Booking links appears to be down, trying to book for me Chris Bennett and another friend? Will try again later Cheers Barry
  3. Barny, I agree we need to understand the objective and then work towards this and yes I would have done Gurston had I been competing this year. There is however something that has bugged me for a while so this seams the time to air it. we appear to be selecting venues on a time on the track (either number of runs or event length) must mean better value for money? i don’t entirely agree, for me one of the core skills of sprint and hill climbs is the ability to extract maximum performance from 2/3 timed runs I.e the ability to be “on it”from the outset dealing with whatever the conditions throw at you. IMHO when you get beyond 3 timed runs, times don’t get much faster and it simply becomes a battle of who is the bravest or to put it another way who has the balls to take the most risks, not nesesarily the most skill, yep controversial I know! Some of my most satisfying events have had only 2 timed runs, because I felt I had extracted the maximum when the pressure was on to perform with no options to have another run if I cocked up,,, in fact my best day ever consisted of a single short timed run. I’m in no way comparing myself but there is a reason drivers like Hamilton and Senna are considered the best of the best, there ability to perform that one perfect qualifying lap when the pressure is on,,, i guess it boils down to how you view value for money, quality v quantity, I know which I prefer ta Barry
  4. Time to break out the tin foil helmets me thinks
  5. Marto the bushes are different same OD but larger ID to accommodate the M12 bolts. I reckon the set I bought from Westfield last year were simply std bushes reames out from 7/16 to M12! As Terry says M12 heli coils are the way to go cheers Barry
  6. Yeh but its a 2 way PR exercise as the experienced competitor should be recognised for beating an established record hence some form of bonus? Win win everyone gets an attainable target but exceptional drives get just recognition,,,
  7. Hang on the mists might be clearing here,,, so lower the target times for all but put in place a bonus score of some kind for beating an established (or calculated) class record?? That way we have sense of achievement for achieving target as per Stu's comment but also reward for an exceptional day??? Thoughts??

  9. As others have said one single word came to mind when I read David's post' "gentelman" he truly was. One of life's genuinely nice people, he will be missed. Barry
