So what happens now. Does the Jag get its panels repaired and go again next year with the same motor, or will the motor go back into OVAKIL and the new twin turbo engine combo start to appear?

Back again next year with the same motor, different front bumper, new bonnet and try again for 200. V12 will take a little while longer.

I figured this was as good a place as any to let those that don't know, well.. know.

Last Friday Gary's oldest son was involved in a serious car accident and was admitted to hospital in a coma and with a suspected brain injury.

To quote Gary's text this afternoon. "Jack had his breathing tube removed a couple of hours ago. He Is sitting up, aware, trying to speak but still agitated and annoyed. It is great progress. His eyes are good, he has said "Hello" and follows every instruction given. Still a long way to go but the signs so far are encouraging. Thanks for all your prayers. Please pass on to those who know (us), all my thanks so far. Gary, Wendy, William, Matthew, Rosie and of course, Jack."

I'll update as and when anything changes unless Gaz does himself of course.

I owe, I owe, so off to work I go.

Gaz, those signs do sound encouraging, especially as they've happened so quickly. As you say, it's great progress. Give our best wishes and encouragement to Jack and keep some for yourself and your family as well.

Good, Fast, Cheap, pick any two!

Spoke with Gaz last night and Jack is doing well and is showing further good signs of improvement. He says thanks for the good wishes too.
