Kitch, I thought you were joining us for late lunch and never said 'bye' and thanks very much. So, um, bye. And thanks very much indeed for being a great host, good day.
Obviously, my car had not decided to be entirely incontinent and I made it just after 11 to hear the glorious roar of a 16v being revved hard. It was LOUD. Unfortunately, owing to Timex disgracing itself, all we had today were 16vs and turbo diesels - spookily, all the 16vs were red and all the turbo diesels green except RobC's hybrid Hurricane shell with 16v engine. Very nice looking beastie it is too.

My green machine being set up to roll. I would say it looks apprehensive, but that would be a) transference (please don't show me up or explode
) and b) anthropomorphic and it hates it when I do that.
I didn't think my TZD's results would be too shabby, and had begged the car not to embarrass me after Tom's and Jaba's turbos had both done jolly well. Apparently my horsies have been breeding, because my BX was the turbo winner - Kitch tried to get it into 3 figures and couldn't - sorry, should have fitted that K&N filter before today, but seemed a shame to waste the existing one only having about 10K miles on it.
... really should quit smoking though
Vanny does something technical which I think was related to reconnecting the anti-rollbar (RobC's 16v)

*It may have been coffee: work with me on this one - just flogging the BX Clubbers and inconceivably large quantities of tea line to death.
