My cart only weighed 62 kg well under the 100 max so after removing the front wedge after 1st practice, that improved things so next I increased tyre pressure to 60 psi and then later added ballast and went a bit further

Nice pics,

The guy with the mushed up wheel, had his accident right in front of Matt, Martin and myself
it was quite a good pile up, and hope we get some video footage of it

How did the SKCC team do in the end,

Thats was probably spelt wrong, or had some grammer, that the "grammer police have to have a moan at

Kenton got a trophy think for fastest by the speed gun.
Think it was shared by the non canoe red cart who also got two other awards.
They only read out top 5 times that did not include me. :(

Its all about the "taking part" and not playing to win, except Kenton :D

Richard, if your planning on doing it next year, I have some ideas, to get you higher up the order
nothing to drastic, but modification to your existing setup

Ideas welcome.
I am loosing too much speed scrubbed on the bends ( brakes never used ), considering redoing steering geo


Kenton and others are even faster before That point.

could do with more weight after the rail bridge as only just make the bend with a lot of bobbing where as others just glide past.
