Thanks Leo. I couldn't remember if I put Pro braid on both cars or just mine. I know I did leave a couple of minor differences in the two cars. Not much point having them both the same, right?

Hoping mine might climb the ladder on the consistency ticket. It's running the same motor as last year. I was rather surprised to find some extra power in it when I gave it a bath.

Thank you Leo

sorry about the oven, perhaps you shouldn't cook haggis in it for a while. Hope I can help you when they get to the Isle of Man.

Hello all,
Got through stage 1 - a mammoth 7 hour session... Driver Crawford is the youngest of the team today and admitted a bit of weariness at times, whereas the elders found the only problem to be standing up for so long, We were all revived occasionaly with a good cup of tea. We stopped for lunch also.
Have punched the results into a spread-sheet and will post up very shortly after treble-checking. Photos will have to wait until tomorrow though.

Leo (PS - Gazza, please note Edinburgh is not in the Highlands !!)

Crawford at the controls and Peter controlling...

Yeah, I think the Ninco track has played a part... As well as the surface, the height of the rails allows the magnetic field of the motor to provide magnatraction so the cars with "scrubbed" tyres probably have an advantage here.

Have put photos of each car on Facebook - I hope this link takes you there, rather than post up 51 separate links !!
If not visible let me know and I will do the separate links.

Ouch that was a little bit lower then I expected I guess the cheque did not arrive in time :P

Thanks for running this stage Leo Crawford and Peter.
Can not do much worse the next stage so looking forward to it.
