I have given Paul your address today so I am sure it will be winging its way to you shortly.

Update on passes:

Paul and Jeremy: delivered by hand at Preston Park. I had Craig's with me too, but he didn't arrive :wink3

Craig, John, Tim: posted this morning.

Steve: will be in the post first thing tomorrow.

The pass is a card that you need to hang from your rear view mirror as you turn off the road and enter the BMM site. One of the marshals will then issue you with your wristbands and you can drive down to the arena and look for our cars and flag (if we have arrived before you :laughing2 )

I thought they made peanuts?

Reading the causes, they've missed off "Dropping a PG1 gearbox on your foot" which is a glaring omission - you need to have a word.

Seriously though - I know this can be extremely painful - haven't suffered it myself but know people who have.

The closest i can get to explaining the pain is imagine you fractured your big toe but they won't put it in a plaster cast :glare

Might be time to let your better half drive the cabby down the country, if a tuned 150bhp VVC isn't too unpredictable... or enlist a mate to do the same if you want to be there, insurance permitting... I'm saying this because I assume resting your foot is the recommended cure...

First pictures of a fantastic day. Sunburnt to a crisp, but I'm considering it's "healthy" given how little time I actually spend outdoors...

So much R8 information exchanged today... but then, that's what it's all about...

Harsh, but fair :laughing2

My highlight was being bitten by 2 health and safety inspectors that had gotten a little over-excited at all the cars there.
