Thanks mate - catch up with you soon,

I hope I don't cut anyones thunder, so I'll post a short summary as I'm sure everyone wants to know.

The highlights of an awesome day were:

Ronnie doing 209mph past us (we were 30 feet away), through the timing beams - the most awesome thing I've ever seen, it sounded like Thrust 2.

Ronnie running 4 runs of 10.8 seconds back to back to obliterate his existing times.

Henry running an 11.3 second quarter at only 1.1bar - just amazing.

The fact that Ronnie went through the timing beam at over 15mph faster than a well-driven tuned Hyabusa says it all.

Oh and top-boll**ks to the 'busa rider (Mark?) for doing a standing 1/4 mile entirely on the back wheel...........!

PS All the GTRs drove there and all drove back, though Glen did his usual habit of throwing away 3rd gear, i don't think it's his lucky number.
