A few bits of news to report this week.Firstly,at the CCSE awards bash on the 25th I picked up a couple of very nice trophies thank you very much! The RRC racer of the year was a gorgeous crossed con-rods trophy c/w 4 crew t-shirts of our choice(thanks Andy and Kate) and a Brantwood auto breakers 150mph jacket.(see pic below).I also watched the fat boys picking up their coveted 8sec jacket and then laughed when they had to give it back coz it had 9.98 sewn on instead of 8.98(sounds about right at 148mph chaps eh?).Thanx to everybody involved in the organising department for a cracking evening(what I remember of it anyway.......)

Secondly I had an e-mail from Extreme Machines inviting me to the 0-60mph Guinness world record attempt at Elvington on March 15th.This should bring plenty of publicity to the CCSE cause especially as John Sleath in the bad to the bone Audi has been invited as well(can't wait to see their faces when we turn up and start the cars up at Elvington!) Hopefully traction will be OK for us to show how fast the CCSE cars really are.Dependent on the TV companies we might be profiled on the telly (until they hear "awrite skip" and laugh that is..)We'll see eh.
This news has pushed the gearbox strip to the forefront of jobs to do so it'll be in the workshop as soon as it's convenient.
I have also been in contact with some T-shirt printers to do a long awaited follow up to the Red Victor 1 t-shirts.If they come up to scratch with the artwork I'll be having some done.Cost will be £10 if bought at the track,and plus P+P if ordered by e-mail or by phone.
That's it for now,back later next week
