Mark doesn't appear to be on line - flick them to me if you like.
Mark can still use them for the points update etc

The suspense is killing me. Or maybe its the excitement of wasting a day at a wedding expo. Ugh!

Oh poop!

The Koonara car is obviously not a fan of Isle of Man. Or perhaps it's too much of a fan and is busy sight seeing. That's a shocker!

Congrats to those who keep cropping up in the Stage points.

I see Ben has moved to Tasi again.

Thanks Mark, do you have an alarm on your phone when you get an email :P

Good to see a few changes in the order again but that "Souvlaki guy" is still causing some concern ;)

I am genuinely surprised with another stage win, the little gold Peugeot just really likes the IoM. just hope the driver and co-driver can perform in a loebesque manner and coolly bring home the win on Sunday.

It just goes to show how the variations in performance/luck throw the placings around. LPV got a 9th and 16th yet it still gave me an 8th position so far in this round.

Congrats to mtucker666, Alexis and Ben_M for podium positions on this stage. FerraiF40 did well to get a 5th and that Brama car pulled it out of the bag again with a 6th. Well done Dave (slotcarmann) to be in 3rd position at the moment too.

The weather is dry this morning, so slicks for the tarmac Manx Hill Climb, to be run in the reverse direction today.

Chris Priest has added a cattle grid over the weekend, so that should be interesting too, especially for the wider cars.

Andy White probably will be driving again today, with Steve Morrow and I as marshals. Also possible back-up from Mike Buss and Mike Dove.

The cars will run in overnight order from 42nd to 1st, so again this will be the killer stage - with Me, Alexis and Matt T the last three to go...!

Good luck all and more news later.

I have loads of photos and video clips from yesterday, but not had a chance to do anything with them as yet.

Cheers
Dave

Dave, marathon effort from you and all the guys involved. Running one round is intensive but running two on consequtive weekends is impressive. Enjoy today and bring home the bacon for daddy please!
