Yep, its been a "No i'm not going to give up journey"

I always felt that if I gave up people would believe that it was because it was a Rotary!

Did you come across why the car's called Christine, from the Silverstone debacle.

Damn thing caught itself alight, I saw flame and dived in at the next marshals post and worst of all, they dragged the car out of the gravel trap backwards and the gravel got under the back of the splitter and ripped the whole front end off the car  :angry5: 
Even the scrutineers went banana's at the driver for the damage he did, exclaiming that he did it everytime rather than pull the cars out forward.

Worst of all poor old Jarno came along to watch and he saw nothing :-[           
All the best Clive

Yeah, I remember you telling me the story in person, then I read it this morning.....

....still in disbelief..

Well I admire your perseverance, but I don't think anyone could blame the issues because its a rotary. Any engine that's highly tuned has issues.

I also admire Jon when you highlighted the error codes, its like he started talking in binary ! He's never normal that guy! anyone who understands electrics is powered by witchcraft lol
Its just Rotors and GRP

Well Sir, I told you several times that dont worry about me. I was just glad that your car didnt destroy it self completely. Despite that insident, I had really awesome trip at UK, that time. Went to see awesome sightseens, went to Jon's, Jon almost made me loose my breakfast, saw Silverstone and really awesome cars. Btw, that was only time that I saw you almost not smiling cant blame you tho

Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.
