The buggy was set up, the batteries were charged, the hauler was packed, the alarm was set and I was excited.
My first trip to the renowned Slough track, host of the 2003 european champs and playground of the 'fast guys' ... Gulp!
So much for planning. I awoke bleary eyed at the scheduled ungodly hour to be greeted by a pea souper of a mist and a steady drizzle, not a day for my Slough debut, I crawled back into bed and went back to sleep.
I'll wait for better weather, we must get some eventually .. right?
I took a look at the results later, it turns out that around 85 hardy souls braved the early conditions and turned up for what ended up looking like a decent days racing.
So it goes.
