Magnificent! I am 100% up for mucking in on future shenanigans. I have the facial hair of Mansell, the thirst of Kimi and the sponsorship clout of Perry McArthy. Oh, I’ve crashed at the ‘ring in an Alfa, Spa in an Audi, Oulton in a Mazda, Curborough in a Porsche, Llandow in another Mazda, a Cossie at Cadwell, I’ve been black flagged at Zandvoort, caught fire at Donington, later crashed at Donington, busted by the pigs at Monaco and was called a twat by Noel Edmonds at Goodwood. I’m happy to be your tea boy! 
 

How do I get involved?

Moar.

I would do a meme, but I've done a fair few MOAR memes now.  Maybe on the next update.

So.  Driver change to GB.  Here he is looking TEH SERIUS while adjusting mirrors:

As mentioned earlier, the ECAS sponsored car had a fairly large off in the first race,  It bent one of the front arms and needed a fairly significant re-build.  Parts were available, so it was going to race again.  Some gentle panel beating was also needed to make the car more 2CV shaped:

Everything is an anvil when you need it to be:

Straight.  Er.

Off goes the car for the second race:

In the gap between first and second race for the 2CVs, there was some other racing on.  Specifically these very fast "super karts" which were astonishingly quick, and really very loud indeed.  The 2CVs were positively quiet and smooth in comparison.  I know very little about them:

Sun started to come out and the track dried out.  Some great racing by a very close field, and a rainbow to boot:
