Could the 'Hokey-Cokey' actually be what it's all about?

But the problem is that LoT don't like people moaning after the event and prefer people to report it to them on the day. But i'm sure they could watch the footage and have a quite word with that person. Personely i think it'll be one of the race drivers who giving charity laps :roll: Luckly that doesn't go on much :?


The light blue Elise I took was going fairly steadily and I saw the dark blue one inside me before I was fully committed to the turn in and was able to take a wider line. I'm not moaning, it happened and nobody hit anybody. Just wasn't quite in accordance with the briefing!

No worries, that was last week and I'm chilled. Just sorting out a small oil leak (CAS O ring) and then to wash and polish to see how the pebble dashing is!

If the polish doesn't work, try T-Cut and then polish.
If the T-Cut doesn't work, try Rubbing Compound, and then T-Cut and then polish.
You should be able to get most of it out with that.

And most of the paint off too :wink:

Thanks for the track ride Nige! There were a few idiots out there and I'd make a complaint if it was me, although I prefer a fight in the pit lane. :wink:

The sill on the passenger side is quite marked, but it was anyway. The door and the rest is fine. I'll give it a polish at some stage and that'll do. The marks are in the laquer anyway and I have agreement for a respray when I collect my gratuity! Now what colour?
