Last Day

The last few days have been absolutely fantastic.

The funny weather disappeared and thew skys became unreal.

All of the racing pilots have had a great time and we've all enjoyed being

together, (on the grid, in the sky, at the dinners,   and at the bar)....


Special thanks to the Kiwi Pilots,   Trev Terry and Maurice Weaver,  who

needed to outland yesterday,   and did so very efficiently,  into a most magnificent

paddock...    Well done boys,  many thanks,  this is the outlanding example that

we truly appreciate....


Last day today,   the weather looks pretty good,   so off we go,  see you at the next comp..
