According to the hourly forcast it's a coin toss wether it will actually rain. It might just sprinkle a little bit. Just enough to grease things up...

That was also earlier in the year. Lately there's been forecasts of rain but it's just been drying up by the time we get there. It's only calling for 1mm in the morning and a few mm in the afternoon. That's not much rain.

Stop worrying about it. It's not going to rain! The only moisture that will hit the ground on saturday will be from John's car blowing a coolant hose. If it's a 40% chance of rain, it's an 80% chance of John's car breaking again, and I think we all know which is more likely.

I'm not worrying. I just don't want people to not come out because they think it's going to be all wet and soggy. We need more people to start coming out to these events!!!

Over the past several hours the chance of rain has gone down 10% by morning it will only be 20% chance

That's it Steve, I'm loving your optimism! Keep it up! Rain or not, we're there and we make the best of it! Bring rain gear in case! Results are done but not posted yet as I just completed them and I need Jon to convert them for me. So I'm sure he'll get back to me by tomorrow and I'll post immediately after that. I'm really sorry about the delay, I won't bore you all with the reasons. Big surprise, Giles in his Integra took 1st place, congrats, and that awesome e90 M3 with Jim Mikell driving took 2nd. 3rd went to Jon Abela, 4th Alex in the 335, tie for 5th Steve and myself. etc.....

Great show Giles...........

See you all in a few hours.

Here's to my car not breaking,..............again!

Looking forward to a fun day, spent half the day yesturday patching up an exhaust pipe, couldn't have broke in a worst spot. But its patched and should hold for the race till I can get it in for a new set of rear pipes.

See you all in a few hours!

Absoluty amazing event!!

Had a blast yesturday, course was challanging, had a bit of trouble with that last part right before the stop box, and totaly went the wrong way on the 3rd section one run, think Steve heard me yell when I realised I messed it up way over at the start/stop box lol


Cant wait to see the pics that Trev took, and the 2 video's from Sam's go pro, to bad he did not make it out earlier

Here are the results from August 6, along with all of the previous results this year. Navigate with the tabs on the bottom. Best views in IE.
https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=a104a...FC3C9852%21234

It's the first time I've done the results, so let me know if I spelled your name wrong, got you in the wrong class, or if you think I made a mistake in entering the times.
It would really be awesome if someone could bring a small laptop so we could enter times live. We'd be able to see instant results.

Thanks for putting the times up Jon. , I can try to fix up a laptop for the remaining events, problem is battery life probably won't last the full event. I have an old one that I can fix up, but battery life ain't going to be great.
