This "unofficial" rally saw a decent turn out brighten a drab day. We visited the great Donnington Motor Museum, had a bite to eat, celebrated Fiona's birthday with an "FTO cake" and then proceeded to thrash our cars to pieces in order to squeeze that tenth of a second out of some wet tarmac.
These photos were taken from a Canon XL1 digital camcorder. I also have video footage of the 0-60's.
The Dunlop Bridge on the circuit is one of the most famous landmarks of the great British circuits.
The usual tyre-kicking sessions saw people braving the drizzle. In the last picture we see Andy turning round with "THAT'S where the engine is then!".
Steve Pond has a ransom out for the whereabouts of his spoiler. Should you have any information please contact your local police station or Steve direct.

|The steam catapult threw Chris' FTO on a blistering 0-60 charge as you can see from the exhaust gasses.|
|Unfortunately when it came to decelerating he missed the braking point and almost ended up back at the museum.|
