    Ooooh now that's a project for someone with time on their hands...





































































    ...I don't have time at the moment before anyone gets smart



    We used approx 8-9 litres of fuel at Claydon in our 503 per 8 lap race.

    Anyone got an idea of a recent price of veg oil in drums from a cash and carry?



    I usually get mine from Asda/Ocado as they were cheaper than a cash and carry (speaking to a mate who runs a cafe) but with the price increases this may have changed?



    Cheers

    Actually one was in prcatice, the other was an hour later in qualifying.



    I got the slowest recorded qualifying time in F3. what with fishing it out the pond, getting it back to paddock, drying the engine, changing the fan hub and 2 blades, and getting back out to get a time. Qualified 3rd in F3, and 1st in FS.



    I think the stakes have bee raised in FS now.

    Oil 2.0 - I was faintly hoping there might be a bio chemist out there willing to comment on their chances of success..... After all it would rather change the world as we know it, Jim... But I should have known better!
