Does that mean we can expect to see a challenge for the world record speed next year then  ;D

Daz

...the biggest challenge there would be getting the money together for that  :o ;D

 I was at Brooklands today finalising some details for C5-25.

Electric Dave was presented with a certificate for the first successful ascent of Test Hill by an all electric vehicle.  8)

I have a copy of it and will be adding it to the "challenger" display board that will be on view at C5-25.

Great stuff Karl, and well done Electric Dave, It is nice to first at somethings (nudge,nudge,wink,wink  :D)
A friend at work is a big scalextric fan and I know they have been to Brooklands a couple of time racing them up the hill, and he also took apart in some filming for James May's new show.
