Well there we have it.
An excellent meeting even if Saturday was a little thin on the ground.
Plenty of testing put in by myself and Simond in the afternoon and we even had time for a few tinnies out in the Sun
:)

Grant appeared Sunday, and with the addition of Rhys both qualy'd with me in the A Final after 4 very close rounds of heats.

Unfortunatly Grants speedo went hay-wire before leg one and took no further part.
After round two I was rather surprised to find myself lying 2nd but after leg 3 had dropped to a fighting 4th overall after Tim Hancock put in a very well executed last gasp attempt and jumped me.
Rhys came away 7th overall so we are both very happy with our results.

Simond did well to finish 2nd in the B but could have easily got 1st if he had applied gazeebo team orders and demanded his friend Tony move aside ;)

The big wins of the day though came in the raffle when Simond won two prizes, won of which was a 10 single Orion motor; us however got the star prize... a New Tamiya Mini Kit ! :) Watch out sometime soon when another member of Team H will ge appearing with it.

Thanks to Stuart and Co. at Eastbourne for making it such an enjoyable weekend.

4th in the World Mini driver signing off.
Hee Hee Hee... :lol:
