About 5 mins before this happeneed, we were one lap behind you guys, with your FTO doing a smoke screen round the entire track and sounding like it barely had 2 cylinders left, with Darin looking at his watch, chequered flag in hand.... We managed to convince Darin that the race had at least another 5 mins, thinking the FTO surely had less than that left in it, and 2nd place was ours. Minutes later, Andy finally manages to over take the somehow still running FTO, only for the wheel to fail on the Colt on the next lap and you retake 2nd place straight back! And somehow the FTO survives to the end against all odds

The FTO started to over heat at about 1 hour, how it lasted 3 more hours with the needle off the gauge i'll never know, i'd resigned my self to an early finish.
At the end it was stuck in 3rd, throttle nailed to the floor, Phil couldn't lift off otherwise it would die, which it did as soon as he lifted when turning into the pits.

Still think we deserved a prize for getting an FTO to the end. Though somehow don't think we will use one again next year
