Hi Phil.
I would like a place please.
I am fairly sure I can muster a full Wolves team, will speak with the guys tonight and confirm names with you ASP.
Just one question; are you sure about an 8hr? Just worth considering the time of year, and inevitable 'time drift'... and potential for bad weather, road conditions etc. Might be worth thinking of a 6hr, perhaps? Its your call and I will come whatever.
Regards and HNY,
Bill.
P.S. Will the race be on the extended track?, did enjoy that at the Welsh GP!

Hi Phil.
Can you confirm this event is definitely on? The reason I ask is I know you had big PC problems last week and just want to confirm as I will see all of the Wolves guys tonight to make travel arrangements for Sunday.
Also, what driver change/minimum driver time will you employ? Do you think its best to stick with 15 minute driver (2 minute change window, with drivers/teams to decide if single or multi stints) changes and 1 or 2hr lane change? Suggest 1.5hr minimum driver total race time for 3/4 man teams, and 1hr for 5/6 man team?
I hope its still on!
Cheers Bill.

Hi Bill, yep still on, computer fixed, we have a DS lap counter for back up!

Would you be happier to do a 6 hour? So you can get away earlier?

Cheers
Phil.

Hi Phil.
Good news!
A six hour might suit the majority of the Wolves crew, but we are just one team. How do Steve and Craig feel about it?...they have a long drive home as well!
Cheers Bill

Seeing as Equipe Big D is mostly localish, can we do 8 hours as opposed to the other teams doing 6, so my novice skills don't leave us TOO many laps adrift in "winners of the non podium group" position? Or "last place" as the more uncharitable oft call it?

Thanks to the Aberstone guys, we had a great day out. Im looking forward to racing on that track again.
Well done to Phil, Steve, Craig & Ben. you were worthy winners.

Im sure we would have won if it had have been 8 hours instead of just six! Your car wouldnt have lasted another 2 hours!!!!!

Rob :)

Hi Rob,

Thanks, our car ran well all day although our tyres were getting on the small side! Would have needed to change them if it was an 8 hour though!!

Steve.
