Double header this weekend, Saturday the international, Sunday the Natinal. Always a good one and usually hot aswell. Not sure if there will be anyone about up there but if there is feel free to drop by :)

Well proably a good job no one came out cos the whether was awfull! V.heavy rain on the Sat lead to a couple of accidents, the 1st wasnt serious but the 2nd was. The car spun on standing water and went into the tyres bacwards at aprox 50/60 mph. The drivers seat mount broke at the front and the seat went backwards causing the driver to hit his head on the rollcage and left him knocked out for a couple of minutes. He was choppered to hospital and the event was cancelled. Not a good day at all

I heard about this on sunday, sounds like a bad weekend.

Were you competing? In what car?

He's not bad considering, broke 2 vertebrate in his neck though and will be out of action for about 6 - 8 weeks. I was competing in my S1 Rallye

We never made it into competative runs. There must have only been 20 cars that got a lap in before it was cancelled. Sunday was ok, i had to push hard but couldnt match the pace of Craig so had to settle for 2nd in the end.
