When I took the bottom picture having built the engine and put the car back together from a pile of bits, one of my employees said ' I don't know why you bother wasting all your time , motor racing is a waste of bloody time' . Well two years of evenings and weekends and any spare cash it was finished. Wasted time ! I don't think so.
Tom's taking this speedway lark a bit serious. Reckons he's going to be riding for team GB this time next year lol. Told him he looked 'nice' but he didn't get it !
Thanks Ken for the pictures and video , gives me an idea as what was going on with the suspension. God knows how they raced them this soft, it was like being at the helm of a boat.
All the water on the track just added to the effect !

Well it did a a very hard race distance run today and didn't miss a beat so it's going racing at long last. Three more weeks to tinker.
