Leo - Phil took care of your car mate, running quite nicely now.

Oldslot and Phil - those cars certainly woke up after a good warm up.

embs, sorry mate, you didn't like the bumps and off cambers.

More tomorrow, but in the meantime, Phil B has posted a few pics at slotforum here

If I get the chance tonight, I'll get some vids and photos up on here.

Martyn
I am impressed you, russ and Phil got the three sages run in one day - hats off. A good mix of stages that will test all of rally cars characteristics. Looking forward to the report over the next couple of days.

Wow, not what I was expecting, congrats to all those in front of me and thanks for getting KV's car going, great job. Hopefully things will pick up on the next stages. Super effort in getting all the stages run, you must've been at it all day.

LPV in 9th place is good. But what a surprise to see the Sciri car in 8th place! And Ember in 27th! An even bigger shock!

Thanks for fixing my miserable car. That car has been a complete disappointment every step of the way and now another failure. Happy to send a replacement motor or some cash just let me know where.

I hope we don't get any motor issues here as replacements are like hen's teeth in Italy. I had to get mine by swapping in the UK. If anyone has got any emergency spares (motors, tyres, etc.) they could slip in the box and get returned when their car is sent home that would be useful.

Great work guys thanks.
Very happy with the Skoda that stays near the top on both hemispheres and where other series contenders score low.And this is not
the first time the Skoda races on Wye Valley stages,the last time was in 2010 as proxy entry to Slot Rally GB and it was not good.

Yo Miveson. Top 10! Woohoo.

Rather surprised by that result - surely a typo, it's pretty easy to get Ember and miveson mixed up on keyboard. Fingers crossed for the next few stages, I'm sure normal service will resume. Not a bad weekend all in all, 10th here, 5th in NZ.

Love the photos that are up on SFI. Man, that hump backed bridge would be enough to cover the windscreen with the co-pilot's breakfast!

WHAT!!!! SFI get the scoop!

Edit: I've just been there and couldn't believe it, just FOUR members logged in at this time in the morning. That must be a an all-time record. Come on Auslot...go International.

Edit again: I've been through the first four pages of Events and couldn't find it. Are you sure you weren't dreaming Embs?

I think if I were dreaming I'd have done better in the results Graham. There is a link in Snurfy's post at the top of the page. Or you could try this one instead. The thread is posted in the Wye Valley Club section.

To the Podiumites , Silver Rocket ,Snurfin and Kalbfellp congrats. 26th, Ahhhhhhh! And the pics are on SFI. And the Ems car is in 2 of them ^_^ . Is a bad day for sure. Only consolation is that the french brigade are up top. About time ,I was getting tired of holding the fort. That hump is wild ,I might see if I can incorporate something into my track down the line. I was thinking of a totally different track when you said its name of Camel Toe :o ,sorry tow :lol: . Glad you guys had fun at and also saw how long it really is. It's definitley not a 5 min job as some may think. Only criticism is the :mellow: (serious faces lads) , try to make the next one :D (happy face) :lol: Waiting with baited breath for the next lot of results or can I just give up now. Just a quick one ,why the asterix's beside some names . Are we the ones who didnt pay off the marshalls :huh: .
Cheers Craig
