    A quick word from our sponsors...

    Another great series over, here are some photos that are meant to amuse and never offend to remind us of a great Gp series.

    Great photos you two, I'll add mine to the mix HERE.
    Probably best to click on Slideshow.
    I took one of the wind flag too!

    That one did come out rather well, excellent subject matter, I couldn't go wrong;)
    The England Team is going to look rather smart out in South Africa I think.
    Thanks for your efforts with the team gear.

    Not mine James, FT Monki's (Team Z, Chris Large) and Dave Hutton at Rangesports. Chris sorted the design, and Dave put it on fabric. Thanks to them it happened.

    Glad they're popular. Think I will use the new technique on the STB gear. The 'flock' effect had me n Chris wondering, but it looks the biz... better than the flat lettering or stitching in my opinion.
