It was a great day on Sunday, really well run and lots of volunteers chipping in on the timing which i know we all appreciate - but important to acknowledge! Someone even sorted the weather out.  Happy birthday Michael!

The BBQ approaches on Saturday evening were varied and entertaining, and I think Sean and Gill win as the most in control and organised chefs - and my seriously burned sausages were reflective of the following day on track - starting with promise then slowly falling down the order in a puff of (tyre) smoke.  

Just got over my sulk from Sunday :) and just read in low flying that I was apparently lucky in Anglesey to get a Sunday 3rd as I got a re-run and therefore warm tyres on the last run.  Not that anyone cares but whilst a few drivers did get re-runs, I was definitely not one of them, and having been very happy with my final lap (on cold tyres!) I will now be sulking again... I will be fine by Aintree. Probably.

I didn't realise that you were sulking so much on Sunday Justin that you didn't stay to collect your award......the yellow trowel!!!

Unfortunately I'm not available that weekend, but it sounds like a great track

Shame, the extra run on warm tyres would really be a great benefit there JustinRofl

Oh dear - Fake News reaches Lowflying. My recollection of who came past the queue to take re-runs was clearly faulty, and now I've diminished Justin's fine achievement on the last run at Anglesey. 

If I write the Aintree report, I'll try to redress the balance - though that might make things worse!

Sorry Justin.

Paul

Your post made me laugh. I know it's not personal Paul :)

No danger of a Chinese burn from me at Aintree.
