Thanks to the recovery guys at the weekend, i don't usually trouble you guys much in a season but seemed to get all my bad luck in one dose this weekend - as follows:



1st practice - revs bogging down - main jet blocked, changed carbs http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_sad.gif



race one - last lap, went for a spectacular swim, drowned the engine http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_eek.gif



race two - water hose came off - melted pistons http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_sad.gif



Sat evening spent in the paddock fitting spare engine whilst everyone played doctors and nurses http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_sad.gif



race three - fuel tank dropped off it's mount and squashed fuel pipe http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_redface.gif



race four - cylinder head gasket blew just after my best start ever http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_mad.gif



all fixed now http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_smile.gif http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_smile.gif http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_smile.gif http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_smile.gif http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_smile.gif http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_smile.gif http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_smile.gif http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_smile.gif
