No damage done really - I think the wheels are fine. The Tyres popped off the rim when we hit the kerb side on, whilst going backwards! I’m yet to try to inflate them, but the bead could be ripped - I needed an excuse to buy some rainsports anyway

I was dropping a lot of gravel for a while, and it had finally died down - when I managed to overcook it, have a wobble (it was quite wet at this point, and we’d had to go back to the semi-slicks), then go headlong back into the gravel! Muppet. Nothing too spectacular, and didn’t go too far - so I could just reverse out.

Unfortunately Nicole came off worse today - but I should let Doug tell you about that. Could’ve been nasty, but luckily he wasn’t hurt.

The marshalls were busy fishing people out of that same gravel trap all day. The recovery lorry driver said he did 17 rescues last week on a wet trackday, and his record is 23!

Nah - Brands

Coming down the hill after Paddock, rear end broke free and started coming round - he tried to catch it but no good - and off we went! Both Tyres on the driver side came off the rims.

The guy in the car behind reckons he got it on video - keeping an eye out for it on YouTube.
