Standard for Mallory is 1800hrs. Then you have the fun on the day of queueing to get out after a good days racing.

It's not often that I have the chance to watch a 750F race from start to finish, but I really enjoyed yesterday. Some great battles, many which ran to the flag. At the front, Roger was able to pull out a slight gap and go on to take what looked like a comfortable win. Next up was a titanic battle between Nat Cooper and Bill Rutter with Bill just claiming 2nd on the last lap when they caught traffic. Out in a fairly serene 4th spot was Dave Robson - suffering from throttle problems while Rod took fifth from Martin Kemp following another close battle which seemed to last the whole race.

Congrats to Roger for a perfect score of 50 after two races and to everyone else for a really enjoyable race.

The ADR is now running and (cross fingers) the oil issue seems to be resolved - I'm just waiting for some damper extensions and springs for Brands Hatch - but we should be there.

Glad you enjoyed the day Pete. Good to see you and Lisa.
I got some good video of the back of Roger's car but that faded when the throttle failed to close going into Gerrards. The logger showed it stuck at 25%. It did the same into Esses and Bill was through like a rat up a drainpipe! The hairpin was interesting as the engine hit the rev limiter and I had to switch the engine off. Nat was with me by now and was soon past as I wondered about the next sticking incident. As it happened, it cleared thereafter. I tried to chase Nat but he was away and after the fastest lap of the day. (we are going to have to watch that boy!). Well done Roger, Bill and Nat. Sorry Chris had yet more problems. One day he'll get it together.
See you at a crowded Brands,

Wandering about at a local boot fair today, Mick & I came across some '60's & 70's Car & Car Conversions magazines.

Hey Presto.....one of yesterday's Mallory runners was pictured & given a whole paragraph

As it turns out, he posted a personal best at Mallory yesterday.....exactly 45 years TO THE DAY of his first 750F race............

The Mallory race was very good, with close racing throughout the race! Nathaniel was flying in the second half of the race.

Is the entry for Brands looking larger then?


It looks like Dick Hartle was looking at the chaparral 2F for inspiration! (the 2F came out in 1967!)

Who will be the first to fit an F-Duct then!!!

Unfortunately I won't be one of them. Missing Mallory was due to not checking the calendar before booking a caravanning weekend :oops:
For Brands though, I shall still be recovering from a hernia repair :cry: But I hope to persuade my "carer" to bring me down to spectate and I shall bring the video camera too.

Hernia? That's not due to too many "doughnuts" at Snetts is it Nigel? :shock:
