had a blast at manfield on monday. my MR2 performed marvellously, and the conditions were perfect for racing - not too hot, no damp stuff, and sunny all day.

I'll eat my hat now.. took the punt back on the other page (mind you I never checked anything) .. couldnt think of better wx for the weekend, & todays a cracker again too!

Saw heaps of sunburn after the counties / hawkes bay match at the stadium the other day.. could also have been blood boiling after that last second try. :(
