I never asked you what happened at the last corner that it ended up so close?

Cake was also good btw. :)

"Doesn't matter if you win by an inch or mile" - I think that's literally an inch.

Congrats 8-)

Came up Duffus fully loaded, met a junior right in the middle of the track and had to let off to avoid him, hence how Matt carried the momentum and nearly inched past

I thought that, but didn’t see him in your vid first time round. Do now.

The Junior cars couldn’t help but get in the way really - massive speed difference.

Yeah, fair play to them. They're out there in 1/4 million pound cars and the mixed grid was probably more scary for them than it was for us, but the situation was what it was. On the positive, they are used to mixed "classic" grids, so in their normal stuff they often have late 70s F2 cars (which are a lot quicker than the FFs) sharing a race with them, which must be fairly scary.

As and when I can get Youtube to play properly, Ill upload some front facing footage and you can see the closing speeds. With rattly 50s mirrors, and boarderline control, some degree of obstruction was always inevitable. Just unfortunate from my point of view...(although very much to my advantage in Race 1!)

Nicely done Neil 😎

Hope your trophy cabinet is big enough to accommodate them trophy's? (Nice problem to have, eh?!?)

Fantastic Neil - you'll have to start disposing of those lesser trophies soon because you'll need space for the winner's cups 8-)

Found this. I guess I was even luckier than I thought - literally one thread away from disaster :shock:

I saw Lewis with the torque wrench - did Scott convince you to leave the Ray to him in your will? :?
