  1. Wow! Did the postman cycle all the way to your door? He'll be back in Oz just in time for the start of the Christmas rush ! SÌmon
  2. I'm in guys, let me know. Simon
  3. Mel, a package arrived a couple of days ago! After the recommended period of UV quarantine, I opened it today and was pleasantly surprised to find the trophy and the screwdriver! Many thanks for running the event again, after a quick look at the car it appears the rear tyres are fine, could probably do all rounds again. The problem is obviously the fronts re. Deslotting, they've worn quite a lot, and most of the "anti-grip" coating (nail varnish ) has worn off! There must be a better way..... I don't remember the weight, and can't put my hand on the micro scales to check it . It obviously needs more weight towards the rear. Oh well, you live and learn. Stay safe everyone Simon
  4. Mel, a package arrived today, now quarantined in the greenhouse, as the postie that delivered it was not wearing gloves! I'm recovering from cancer, so can't be too careful. I'll let the UV smother the coronas. Hope everyone is OK in these challenging times. Simon
  5. Well done Keith great to see another Brit on the top of the pile!!! As you said , a slow start, quite the opposite of mine....... the words Tortoise and Hare spring to mind. Well done to everyone, it seems like everyone's prep has been good as I don't recall any major fails ?!? Better luck next year Bov, Chas only 2 points above me ! Next year maybe and Snurf , I'll get you next year too. Leo and Alexis, I got ya both this time Well done Mel, I know a lot has been going on and I'm sure we all appreciate your hard work. Thank you ! Our thoughts are with you as we share the bad weather. Simon, on a hill, 2 miles and 100metres above the flooded River Severn. In England ( not Wales lol)
  6. Had a similar problem myself, the battery tminal swerve corroded, don't know how , the battery wasn't. So for 5 years I've been booting up in safe mode resetting the date/time and it runs fine. For me the key would be to leave it switched on 24/7 global warming and all that. Pesky Snurf seams to have done me over again. GRRRRR VBR Simon
  7. Dam that pesky Snurf........ Mondeo man certainly has been the class off the field Well done to Keith for second Simon
  8. Hope everyone is OK down there while it's hots up . Keep safe all Simon
  9. I know , you just need to be careful not to have any exposed smooth velcro !!!
  10. Thanks for totting up Bov Looks like I'm going to be settling for the middle of the field , again ! Let's hope I can pic up a good result in the final round (s) , and leapfrog over Snurf lol Simon
  11. I'd agree with you there Chas, even though it displaces me, making you 4th unless there are other errors...... Sadly having checked three times, mine are correct :( Simon
  12. Check my previous post, number 5 , I think the track takes up the area of a normal house door, approx 2'6" × 6'6" I'm not sure if Martyn had it last year, but it might have been used in the past when it was the SCX wrp. Simon
  13. Thanks for the kind words Martyn I've driven Pinewoods a number of times over the last 10 years, although never with the Lancashire. For those of you who think the trees look familiar, you're right, it's a de-constructed Christmas Tree. It's smooth , fast with a few sharp turns and " do-nuts". It's possible to get a good flow despite the turns , but you need to beware....... one of the straights has a kink! Look forward to seeing the results Simon
  14. Leo, thanks for running another great round. Super result for #33 . My Lancia really does prefer the plastic tracks, interesting shuffling of the top half of the field Just 10 points covering 2nd to 8th, should make the next rounds even more interesting. Well done my podium mates. Bring on the next round, would that be you Martin? Simon
  15. Good to see that track again Leo. When set up at home, my test track is a similar shape, although with rally loops each end So far I'm a hand full of seconds behind Monday man at this point, so I need those on the next stage. Bring on the Ninco! Simon
  16. Geez Leo! looks like my guide has been well and truly nobbled This year my car was set up on a combination of scaley classic and sport , so should have loved it on you track. Just goes to show how random a proxy event can be....... I was hoping to leapfrog Monday man into the top half of the field at this event. Simon
  17. Hey Leo, great video. I've completely missed this until I scrolled the page down by accident this morning........ looking forward to seeing the lancia on the carrera track Simon
  18. You do know it was not a criticism, just a vain attempt to achieve the top half of the table.......... Simon
  19. Well done Chas, great to see a Metro on the podium. It seems that over time the Metros and Lancias are becoming as good as the RS 200s Looking forward to my Lancias dominance on the plastic Euro-tracks ........... Surely I'm joint 7th Mel.........ha ha Simon
  20. Ha ha, Bov! I know exactly what you mean it was the late 80's for me too. Although I did win a quite few "Scatter" rallies in the mid '90s until the proliferation of mobile phones spoilt the fun. Mid table for me again! Let's hope I have a run of luck in the opposite direction. ..... Simon
  21. Great Pictures Phil, thanks for running the is round Simon
  22. Err maybe not! Talk about hero to zero........ Remember I did mention I'd set up the Lancia on Scaley Classic, so I guess I'm looking forward to the next plastic track Simon
