Well done all you competitors, a big thumbs up to Slugger for being the highest placed GPwizard team member. :good:  :yahoo:

Commiserations to all you others Ali, Scott, Neil, Deano..... and especially Mad Max Mosley -'It's my series I'll ban anyone who gets in me way' (otherwise known as Wizzo).  :DD  :DD :DD

Good to see Scott will be able to take some extra gifts for the kids in his luggage instead of a weighty trophy.  ;)

Drifting in a Caterham 7 sounds cool Scott, although I think our poor banned chum Neil may know more than most about that as he will have a fortnight in which to practice his.  :D

Next year I hope to have the funds to be there myself, and to have lost the two stone required to compete in the karting. {David - 5 posts from end of page 5}

I look forward to seeing you then :)

Everyone have a good time and enjoy
the racing {dare - 4 posts ago}

I enjoyed organising the event, though I didn't enjoy the actual karting bit much because I felt like I was having to second-guess the kart all the time (not a problem I had last year). I ended up holding the wooden spoon, not only in the GP Wizard section but coming 22nd and last overall. Even my less-experienced brother beat me by 1 point, with a fastest lap 0.12 seconds better than mine.

What made things really strange was that Dad reckoned I was sliding better this year. I still can't find this mythical "third setting" between on and off, though. I only spun twice and the second of those was assisted by someone hitting me from behind (which in turn was probably related to the fact that I was speeding up again after having a conversation with a marshall about pedal techniques).

Seriously it was an excellent night of racing and it was great to meet everyone, a BIG thank you goes out to ALi and here Dad for organising the entire event and I hope to see you again real soon. {Wizzo - 3 posts from end of page 5}

Thank you very much. It was great to see you, Deano, Scotty, Slugger and Neil. I was surprised how good the standard was and the response was good.

So good that I'm now hoping to set up a summer karting event in addition to this one (which is definitely going to be an annual competition). So you may see me again sooner than you think...

Well done to Ali for organising, and increasing the numbers on last year {Neil - 2 comments from end of page 5}

You're welcome. Maybe we can get even more people racing next year? :)

Hey Wizzo, how did you come up with 17 competitors?

(...just trying to get my 11th place look a little better)

There were 22...
