Looks like this is now the thread for those that cant make it. I'm also out due to work commitments.

To say I'm devastated would be an understatement. It looked to be the year when everything comes together.

Have a great time guys!!

I've got to book my tickets as well
as for getting a picture of Neb 3's steering, good luck
every time I went near it , they threw a towel over the front end.
but that's a whole other story

I'm going, and have some how been convinced to drive the 374 tank???? that is of course if I can get into it with a HANS device on
And if we ever finish scrutineering

G441,

I have one photo of it that I found years ago and printed but haven't seen one online since. G752 is really interested in the in and outs of the various Nebulous Theorem cars and bikes, as am I, so he's on a mission. If you can't do it, G752, and you need it, I'll post you a photocopy and a schematic drawing when you get back. It's a much better system than Neb 2 uses.

Cheers

Add me to the list of people that can't go :( My wife is sick :(. The Doc (1 hour ago) says she'll be better in a week but won't be well enough to look after the kids if I go. Does the entry fee carry over to next year?
