    Hi Guys

    I have given the shooting a bit of a rest this year and took up a old hobby of mind, out of interest I thought I would share some footage with my friends on here which was taken this past weekend, snapped the prop on day 2 so DNF'd but moved up from my seeding of 66 to 24th overall before it went.... there is 2 more vids on there including a night stage..

    enjoy ...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1VP5ZHPvV2E

    Night stage...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jTmnKXbbvSE Got held up bad nr end and lost alot of time.

    Hope to catch up next year and everyone have a good winter league.

    Chris Jones

    Fuel economy.... just over 1 litre per mile with the anti lag turned on.. about 4-5 miles per gallon thats on standard v-power not the £3 per litre 102 racing fuel.....:( I am looking at carbon offset for next year and what I can do to be carbon neutral or as close as can be...

    Davidstow became unusable due to logging making it to ruff.. I did the 1st High Torr stages there in 1992 and 1993.
