Andy, you really are a stubborn brit..........and I have deep respect for that.

Raising the bar to top level and not giving up in achieving your goal.

Since I am not on fb and will not attend the BBQ, how can I give a little support ?

There once was a bank account that I could use, is that still active ?
Indeed i am Benni. It's a trait unfortunately.. lol
You can use redvictor1@hotmail.com on Paypal. Other than that i would need to send you the current bank details as the old ones aren't relevant now.
If the latter i would need your e mail address.

Look forward to seeing you there Ian. And thank you for your introduction to Sheik Mohammed.

New heads are now made.
Will be winging their way over here soon.

There is another 5 second club (open to anyone) get together end of September.
Be great to see as many as possible come along.
All goes towards getting the engine rebuilt and ship it and the crew back over to bahrain to complete the job.

Just on the cusp of breaking the 5s and I believe the diff has let go.

Decision being made to whether the car stays out there or comes back to the UK.

Diff decided to call it a day under load causing an over rev which took out some other components, but all is now sorted and the car is staying out there for now and looking to run in the BDRC round 5 at the start of march depending on funds.

Pretty much confirmed, Andy and team will be going back for Round 5.

First on the agenda is a 5 second pass and with a previous PB of 6.02 that 'should' happen.
The speed record is almost a given with a 5, Prev speed PB of 250.92 mph.

After the 5 is done then they will wind it up to 11 and give it all it's got to go for the ET record.

The 6.02 / 250.92 mph was done at approx 3/4 of that the turbos can produce, the question is can the engine take 100% of what they can produce.

Good man, Me and the Mrs will be on there too.

The fund raising is going very well.
I've been totaling it up for Andy.
Wish I could afford to go over there for the week.

I was in Bahrain and at the track during round 3 (I help run MSK Racing in the bike and track racing). Sadly I will be in India with work for round 5.

The record will be broken.
