Ben put in a few runs today Jim, but I can't remember his times. The weather was a bit funny making the track behave a little different from hour to hour it seemed.

It was busy though today, and I mean BUSY! Not seen it like that since 2008 times. Good stuff, and a lot of interesting cars. My fave being the Escort from Malta with a 22B :shock:

Top weekend, burnt to a crisp, and thanks for organising Jay. My toilet death this morning too. I'm sure others experienced this! Jordan! :laughing

Brill weekend, hope it gets even better next year!

Annoyingly, I've just realised that my camera was still partially set up for astrophotography, and as such its noise filter was off. Shouldn't matter too much for the show day photos, but the low light ones like above are very noisy up close. :facepalm: Ah well!

Still looks better than the potato camera we have on our HTC's (of which I took one!) :blush:

Looking forward to the rest, I'm sure they will be great :th:

Is it worth setting up a seperate photo/video thread to keep them all in one place? Then I can post my one there lol.

A separate thread would be good I think :th:

Great to catch up with some of you on the Saturday.
Very happy with my PB for the day (12.1@120mph)
That was with only 3 engine mounts (front gearbox one had the bolts pulled from the box on a particularly good launch)

Had a look today and it will repair with a couple of helicoils so all good.
Defo an 11 second run in this car.
Glad everyone had fun on the Sunday and from the sound of it all the cars came home in one piece. [emoji106]

Gutted I missed your runs mate, would love to have seen them, and glad everyone got home safe after running these 20+ year old cars for some abuse! And the owners on Saturday evening! :laughing :laughing

Won't lie I took my Dad for a skid around the car park when we were leaving, great fun. Did them a favour and mowed the grass for them, what a saint I am! :clapping:

Nice one Jon :th:

Make sure you do a proper intro post though bud ;)

Done me the world of good this weekend, I actually feel far more refreshed after a weekend in a field that a week in Cornwall ;)

So, on to the next? Japfest 2 is the next one and I'm hoping to have a load of work done before that one ;)

I was going to make a surprise visit yesterday morning and run my car down the strip... but I simply didn't have the time as I would have needed to be back home by 1pm

Hey-ho... glad everyone enjoyed themselves, and I may be there next year (as I seem to say every year)
