Sorry Tom, but my Internet was down for 24 hours (a broken phone cable in the neighbourhood) so I didn't get this message, nor could I join the race.

Hmmm... I didn't see any post about this which is why I posted here.  I only saw Bo's email to oAo members. Did I miss it? Do you have a link?

Wow, a perfect race for me. I was very happy getting pole and frankly, it was nice to have the Eagle’s top speed. Mick Chapman was close behind for the first 3 laps and we even swapped places a couple of times due to small errors (great fun!).

I was going at the pace I thought was my max and when Chapman fell a little behind, I was thinking to myself that he must be pushing very hard to stay even and even gain a bit. I wonder if that pushing caused his engine to blow eventually.

I concentrated on not taxing the Eagle’s engine too much as well as making no errors (other than a little tangle with chicane tires once).  My gearing sacrificed a couple of hundred RPM in 5th and a few mph, but I felt that would make over-revving less likely, although with the little jumps it was hard to avoid the odd spike.

When Chapman stopped, I started to worry more about my engine and babied it further, but not too much.

Oops, I missed setting up running the second race.

Sorry, but my wife is away this weekend, I'm left alone with our elderly high-care dog, and I'm very sick too.

I wondered why my alarm went off at 8:30, but I was in the middle of long distance calling about a little crisis with the dog.
