I'm not sure of the actual name of it, but this morning I took a short drive down to Minehead to stand in the woods and watch Phillip M race in the RX8 powered buggy. It stayed relatively dry, though the rain from the night before made it quite interesting to watch! Phillip's lasted only two runs before a gearbox failure put them out but it was certainly interesting to watch. An apparent lack of the usual health and safety measured meant I could stand on the side of the course and get close up for some good photos! Very Happy

Was a bit of drizzle very early, but most of the rain had been overnight. Dried up and turned out nice.

Rich, the next one down this way is at Ilfracombe, I might go and watch again. Will let you know Smile
