Touring cars which, and I'm sure it's not coincidental, use Goodyear tyres.

I've had mine.
Perhaps it's a little later as the club have been busy with running the Nationals last weekend?

Hi Jason,
Sorry to hear about your back.

Yes, it was hot hot hot !!
There were probably about 100 or so cars there. There were plenty of old favourites, but many of them I'd never seen before.
