Went to combe late and left early..had a walk off the circuit and then decided to come home...she took 2 attempts to start this morning but happily burst into life at combe to bring me home...im getting better but im certainly not westy fit....its like being a torture rack.  Got some play in steering to sort thats majority  is quick release steering wheel other than that she is all good...i fixed a weepy fuel line yesterday so looks like shes ok.
I forgot how brutal 2nd and 3rd gear pull is.  Very additive indeed.
I saw this mint rx7 lining up to go out on track....i thought no pls dont too pretty...
I saw it do 2 laps only...eeek hope its ok...and then i spied this van...me like the colour....i hung around like a idiot to see if i could work out  owner for colour code but no joy.
