Dare I say that I’m quite glad that Smally pulled out! After all I’ve a handsome trophy that was unquestionably destined for him.

Actually it’s interesting to note that the F35 field with the trusty industrial engines is proving more popular than the 'open class'. If you would like a trophy then please be advised that at the time of my writing only two (I’m not one of them) 'Open class' hovers have expressed an interest in racing this weekend at Littlehampton. So a handsome trophy could be yours.

Incidentally, I too hope to be jumping on the bandwagon and switch from open to F35…
