I'm there. Obbbviously.

There's also the matter of championship prizes. I'll bring in my prizes (as daft as it seems lol) and do all that properly. I'll also be bringing a little something for 2nd and 3rd and a even little-er something for everyone else.

Not much, but something. Next seasons prizes will be much better though. :D

Headlights and underground lighting came in this morning, 9.99 each.

I'm cooking on the day, the local A&E have been informed. Will be cooking fmr 4.30pm to give me enough time to cook and everyone enough time to eat and digest before the 3 hour marathon.

Can you please let me know if you want cheese melting on your burger. I normally use a thick-ish slice of edam which just about fits the burger and tops it really nice with a bit of mayo and ketchup.

The new shop is open, and the link should be somewhere on my profile if not in my signature.

Thursday 10am - 5pm
Friday 10am - 6pm
Saturday 10am - 5/6pm

opening times over xmas, will be here Tuesday, Saturday, then back again first Thursday after new year, Sam would kill me if I did any more, and not enough people know I'm here yet to justify opening up any more than those days.

Fitted my lights tonight, need to do a bit of a rewire to get both sets in, and the surprise I had in store isn't going to happen now :(

I had wanted to fit a circuit so that when the lights in the room went off, the lights on my car came on automatically, but something is wrong. I have the circuit in my car (someone on a yahoo group made one for me) but for some reason it's not working, I really should have tested it sooner but not had the chance till tonight.

well I've got some more here, but it looks like there's a problem with them, the switches aren't working. I thought it must have just been something I did to one set, but I've opened up another and the same thing is happening.

Wow!, I've managed to get about 6 hours sleep since yesterday, but I am absolutely knackered after that 3 hour race!

Another brilliant day, thanks Bri and everyone.

Dates for next month, I'm racing at Tamworth next Sunday, and the Marston club with my recoil on the 25th, although, if this is the only date available, I'll give that a miss.

Looks like i wasn't the only one with the glow-in-the-dark idea!
So who won the endurance then?

oopster
2008.12.29, 10:53 AM
Me :D

I came back form about 20 laps down, to being 18 laps in the lead and only me and Bri finished in the end. I also did about 2 hours on three tyres, and had no tread on my front tyres at the finish.

Sorry, that should read "had no tread on my front TYRE at the finish"

Thanks Jayce.

From memory, me, Liam, Bri, Tom and Tony - the only team, then some kid that was ultra fast that hadn't been before, but he only raced during the first lighted section as he didn't have lights in his car.

Following on from yesterday's endurance race, how about we run a similar one the weekend or round about the weekend of the le mans 24hour we're we run similar bodyshells like the VDS type?

The next "special" meet which I think will be April, could be the F1 big track to coincide with the start of the new F1 season too.

Endurance Race Result
Winner.............Sarah 770laps 180minutes
Second............Brian 752laps 180minutes
Did not finish
......................Lee 486laps 158minutes
......................Rob 309laps 60minutes
......................Tom/Tony 287laps 65minutes

Rob is way way way under 16 and was fastest by far.....but unfortunately had to be home and in bed by 7.30!!!!! so could not finish. Tom had an exam on January 5th and had to leave early as well!!! Lee??? well he was racing a 2.4 and when the 3 hours was up he was still trying to reverse off the barrier on a tricky section of track.
Lee and Ryan (Salt Lake Mini Z) will have stiff competition in the under 16 HFAY championship next season if Rob decides to race Mini Z instead of 1/10th.

Haha, Bri. :P

Yeah, that little fella was fast. At the point he left, he had about 30-40 laps on everyone!

His dad said he was a nateral, and qualifies in the 1/10 B mains, nationally.
