Sorry to hear this, as I know how much you enjoy these drives. You and Alan will be missed :sad:

Is there nothing we can do to sort it? Betweem us surely we can find the problem

Thanks for the offer Steve but whatever it is I won't be able to get the parts quick enough now. I worked on it for four days solid and to be quite honest I'm done in and out of ideas.

Hi Ian, sent you a pm but not sure my bit got included. Really gutted you and Alan would be able to join us. We will miss the banter and pool playing skills to say the least.

What exactly is wrong with the car? Obviously not an easy fix.

Thanks Ann, your PM just seemed to be a quote of my message so I guess something technical messed up.

As far as the car is concerned it tramlines wildly at speed as though something is loose somewhere but I can't find the source, it feels dangerous at times and I've totally lost confidence in it.

Could you not hire something and still come along?

Don't think that's really an option Steve.

I think the competition odds just lengthened by a fair amount. ;)

Ah Ian, will miss you and Alan ... Shame about the car, been there with similar issues myself. I was worried myself today if I'd be in the Lotus due to a sudden coolant loss but I'm pleased to say I'm back in the running.

Take care bud, get booked for next year ;)
