Dont call me Shirley....

Like you Bill I thought more cars were out there. I had Tony Densham's 'Commuter' and Bruce Browns 'Age Machine, later to be run by Dave and Ros Prior, as candidate's for the 'under 8 club' but was surprised the best I could find was an 8.45 for Commuter.

Although Sunday got completely rained out (yet again) fester, from the SCR data sheets Alec ran a best of 9.599/145.76 with the new set up midway through Saturday afternoon. I believe son Tom also took a turn behind the wheel later in the day.
