Well what a total waste of time and effort that was.
 
Left in plenty of time, huge accident on A120 near Stansted, sat there for an hour an 15 minutes, realised I was going to miss at least 3 races, so turned around and came home.
 
Honestly, as time goes on with accidents, roadworks, endless road closures at weekends, I simply cant be AUTOMATICALLY DELETED WORD to go racing as much as i used to, and it's nothing to do with the tracks, cars or anything, just simply driving.


I feel for you.
However, I'm sure all those directly involved with as you say, the huge accident, be it those that were driving, their families waiting for them to come home, the emergency services who picked them out the wreckage and hopefully got them the care they needed, will all soon be a long here to apologise for the utter inconsiderate inconvenience they caused you this evening.

Still, sounds like you got home ok and in one piece though?

My boyhood hero was 85 Mr Beef.
I'll be as excited as a kid at this years WF like i always am, but i doubt i can put in to words how it felt 30 years ago to be sat watching him win the WF, back when i was a mere 12 years old.
Magic times!

Anybody else suffering from Staffordshire sunburn today? I bizarrely woke up a nice shade of tomato, despite no blazing sunshine yesterday.

That was a good day out.
I really like Hednesford but it does take at least that many cars to get the excitement levels up. Good racing all day from all formulas. I mentioned to those i was with that the spot we had yesterday was exactly what i had at the '91 WF which meant having a perfect view of the unfolding last bend scenes. Low and behold the same scene (almost) unfolded again.
Great finish to a great meeting.

Dan needs some serious attention to his tarmac car. This one is not a patch on the car that was 2nd in 2017's WF (& won Venray Gold Cup ?)
 

DJ seemed to have tried a different set up, both front tyres were cambered so the tread was pointing to 11am rather than 12 noon, maybe that would explain the lack of pace.

I think - this is the same car, it was black before, that didn't settle for 2nd at the 2017 WF. It instead ended up battered and sore in the fence after its final bend kamikaze dive.
Its a different car to the Gold Cup winner.
