yeah it is lovely and sounds sweet as a nut.

was a really good day today. the hermetite capri got a blow out on the top turn around and we didnt have a spare for the front so we had to borrow one of my capri from the car park:D so part of my capri has raced down goodwood hillclimb:P

Hi Ollie,
Jane and I walked up that steep hill to the top paddock twice yesterday but on both accounts the marshalls weren't letting anyone in rolleyes.gif Tell Les good luck for today and that we were sorry not to meet him again (and your good self) and that we took some video footage on both runs. What an excellent show.
I'll give Les a call tomorrow tell him,
cheers,
Kev

we did look out for you kev. sorry we missed you too. it was a real adventure yest. when les blew out his tyre me and the other mechanic managed to get a VIP landrover to drive us down to the car park get the wheel off my car then drive us back up to the top turn around. we then butted through the crowd. jumped over the fence ran down got a couple of marshals to help rock the car to get the wheel back on. the we all hopped back into the vip landrover drove down to drivers club. blagged our way in there and had a lot of free food and drink and sat next to jacky stweart biggrin.gif

what a day
