Did really well today two regularities first was within 6 seconds the second was zero penalties. The first was held in the area Butch Cassidy and the Sun Dance Kid holed up and planned to ranch a little, (the officials of the regularity hid and ambushed the cars like bandits at the stop point to get our time) then just couldn't help themselves and started robbing trains again. And it was at a Museum of a steam train station that we had lunch, really tasty wood fire roasted lamb. This was the first lunch we had, had time for since day one, because our car is slower at cruising speed. The village had a fete running so once again a great atmosphere. The 2nd regularity was perfect by luck really, we were running a bit quick, then there was tight right hander & the control was around the corner so the bend slowed us down just perfectly.
We did a tight little Kart track, again good fun and the third best time for our group.
Jim the Aston Martin is behaving impeccably and putting up a good fight against the Big Bentleys.
