Nice one, good consistent running on all 3 stages got me an overall podium. Well done to alexis, that skoda is a very godd runner and you are building what looks like an unassailable lead. However the fight for second is close with only a round win separating 2nd to 10th now.

My position is looking quite pressured,Japanese reliability is much better in 1:1 cars that their French counterparts so I hope that proves wrong In slot cars.

Vertically challenged eh Embs?. My niece is heading back from Sydney in a few weeks time, so get on down, slip into one of her bags, and get over here! Funnily enough my wife has a colleague at work, whos's from South Africa, and she is an umpla lumpa, is it all that walking upside down?
As you can see in the pictures, the Aldersley Rally Stage at Wolves is in need of landscaping, just dont tell Ianj and Mal that I said so.......

See you at Wolves W&W and you can laugh at my inability to work out. Who is who in real life. D'oh.

I'm not as short as some, but the top shelf is a fairly good place to hide stuff. At 5'3" I don't think I quite qualify as an Oompa Loompa, besides which I don't have green hair.

Just as well it's morning. All this talk of Oompa Loompas would be enough to give me nightmares.

Go Rokmat!!! Congrats on the Stage 3 win and to Malat and .Alexis for the supporting roles. I see the #12 Phoenix continues to fly as well.

Hard to belive Embs, 5th last to 4th, was the lat stage run on a plastic track ? Seems my car has a Yoda-like magnetic pull.

Congrats to all winners and points getters, this is (Even thou my bits and pieces car is rubbish) a wondeful event to be apart of as it brings the slot communities around the world together.

Still in the top ten (only just) . Thanks to all involved for a good round . To the overall podiumites ,congrats. I think my car does'nt like the confined spaces of an island . I think thats why I dont do well in the Oz proxy in Tassie.

5'3"isnt short, Donna's that height!

Her mate is 4'11", comes in handy as she has a canal boat. The funniest thing about her is the accent,The Scouse African shes refered to as!!
Figure that one out!!

Snurf, you always blank me anyway at SRGB, but dont worry I'll not be at Wolves for W&W, as I dont do much roundy roundy, prefer Slot Rally style events. :blink:
