Final stints now.  

George has handed over to Glen; Laurence will then take over for the last hour to the flag, during which the rules do not allow recovery.  Also, he owns the car, built it and knows it better than any of us!

Unless there's damage - we had to replace the nearside front after contact from a Mini overnight - we usually finish on the same rubber we started on.

There is no success ballast, and Pete Sparrow (the winningest 2CVer IN EVER) is built like a racing ferret.

some clerk of the course shenanigens I'm reading.

 

edit, my mechanic just called me. Stewards seemed to be well within grounds for DQing DD racing.

Home.  Utterly spent.

Rich, you're welcome to use any you like from my FB feed - or message @Talbot who had his massive extendable thing with him...

I was trying to grab your workshop pic but can’t get it to save as a jpg. Just calls it a html page

I was right there.  The DQ, fine and points were well-deserved.  The driver made the "poor decisions", not the CotC as some appear to be claiming.

It cost a team member the championship, so this controversy is likely to run for a while yet.

Any reason you’ve gone for square headlamps?

Laurence (car owner) prefers them.  Simple as that.  Also, we're the only ones that do!

Laurence is a man of the 1970s clearly.
