    I can't organise anything as I can't make it - having reconstructive surgery on my knee (same problem as Michael Owen) at the end of September - I have no idea how long I won't be able to drive for.

    yes it was me ,just having a little fun with my smaller brothers,was very suprised that yet again another lupo was quicker than me, he did have a 1.8 20v with 200+ under the bonnet,a very good day was had cant wait til the next time,only problem is that there will be more "audis"with more power and much bigger pockets than i can afford,but ive been going to castle coombe for the last 2.5 years since ive owned my S3 and never had a bad day

    That Lupo belongs to Bill Brockbank from Badger 5. He's got a 350+bhp Ibiza which he races in the saloon car series at Combe. He would have been in the Ibiza but it's in bits as he is trying to get more power out of it to beat Keith Murray's Dialynx A4 which is in the same series. Bill is a very good driver.

    Yeah, I agree. Interesting that some of the trade stands packed up and went home at lunchtime.
