    Since when is panel damage a reliability issue?

    Thank you for everyone involved in putting on a great weekend, food was great, challenges were fun and I know some of us complained about the rain but it did make Sunday very eventful.

    I echo the huge thanks to one and all who made this event possible. I had a superb time, so much so I really didn't get chance to take many Cruiser related photos but will post the few I have.

    I didn't manage to meet everyone so apologies for that, next time. This was my first Lincomb outing and am still grinning from ear to ear, the help,support and general encouragement from everyone really made this a special weekend for me and gave me the confidence to tackle the woods etc. This new found confidence saw me total my 1 remaining sidestep but a small sacrifice to see what the 120 can do.

    Can we do it again next weekend :lol:

    PS, what were the final results and standings? I had to go before they came out.

    Home, tired and content.

    The current Mrs Chris thought you were a lovely bunch (err...) and is still gobsmacked at getting best time in the blind driving. Follow MY instructions? Maybe I should blindfold her more often.

    Now leave it, Gav!!

    Funny that, Gav - my Mrs had zero sympathy with my (much-lesser) damage too. When you find a green 80 to break to replace all your body panels, keep the valance (?) thingermewotsit for me ;)

    Top weekend folks. Great to catch up and put new faces to familiar names. Bloody number 8 eh. Who found it first then?

    BTW I think the CB's now operating on UK freq and not French - a youtube vid explained how to change the settings http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWi0NzqWLR4. There goes that excuse for a european roadtrip then! :)

    More echoes of big thanks to TT&I :) as always we had a great time. Great effort on making the course so interesting with hiding the punches more sneakily and the new tracks were awesome..

    Hoping to be driving an ? series next time, it's torture watching :( Big congrats to Ben! Hopefully my co-piloting balanced out the weight in the front lol ;)
    See y'all in October..

    Oh it's only Andrew schumacher

    Who came as a passenger down this and from about 30 yard the top side of it (at some momentum) I think the bright light at the top of the hill was heaven (or maybe hell)

    I thought it was the return of Bin Laden :lol:

    Thanks for capturing that Nick. Can't believe how flat the camera makes the hill look. Must be 1 in 4 at least and on here it looks like it almost level! Anyone who's been KNOWS how steep that is.

    Hill. What hill :D

    Andrew was very lucky to have the damage he has. Could have been bad. At least its only metal and not people hurt.
