Finlay into 53's in the Civic, there's a 52 in there. Not bad for a 350bhp /1,200kg car!

Ron Cummings made a mountain out of a mole-hill, apparently. Not nice from what I heard. Why that car's allowed into S&S I have no idea.

Willy now getting some serious pace out of the Mk2 FRS.

Thomson looking quick but gearbox let him down again.

Paul B's car running really well until propshaft bearing went again.

Robert Drummond & Andrew M looking quick also, more time to come from both those cars.

David Brown's first outing in one of the nicest E46 M3's I've ever seen, good pace too.

Whats the story on Ron Cummings?

Looks to be a bit of a cake walk in that car.... Is it a Spire? Whats his chops Kell (evo) seemed to have running issues again going by the lap times.

Saw Will was into the 56s. Good going.

Any chat on the Minis? Looks to have been some ups n downs reading all the individual drivers writeups.

its a nemesis kit car running a red top vauxhall, dont know the politics of it but I am not happy. when he is about to lap someone even from a elevated flagging position you cant see the bloody thing to show a waved blue it is too fast, small and black. How the drivers see it and try to get out of the way beats me. I know it is technically eligible but make it more visible, orange wrap would help

That's the principal issue, you can see the orange bit on the roll bar doesn't even get above most doors on the saloons cars, they simply can't see him most of the time so can understand why the Marshalls struggle.

Also, tearing a novice race driver apart in front of the other drivers (from what I have been told), that's not a very pleasant way to deal with it, lets put it like that.

Didn't see race 1 but race 2 seemed good and race 3 was carnage with a huge amount of bodywork damage all round. Heart went out to John Duncan getting puncture when race was his.

As per drivers briefing you received a few people got smacky wrist and rightly so

A3 was widened this year to allow "Sports Racing Cars" in addition to Caterhams and Kit cars so suspect it's covered in the greyness of definition.

okay its eligible, just make it visible as how a saloon car driver could see it coming up at a rate of knots, of course it will be the saloon thats at fault if the kitcar gets wiped out

The Radical thing does look out of place, I am hoping to do S&S in the exige with more seat time, its small however park it next to the black thing and it probably looks a monster!

Good summary - thanks Mark.

The M3 looked nice and one of the Tegiwa championship car's by the looks of it.
