The irony of mini windscreen wipers is they sometimes don't work when it rains because the connections get damp.

It seems as though the wipers arent working for some of the race looking at this video? Or are you useing Rain Guard? Crazy tactics from that guy in the Westfeild trying to smash his radiator up on you Chris. He had a couple of goes, dodgy corner that he should know better...

Great drive though, love Oulton Park!.... I hate rain

It looks like the trouble all started when Chris gave Chris Maries a good push :)
We will need to wait untill we see the video to confirm this or not :)

I think all the trouble was Chris Maries fault after watching that :o

Interesting race nice footage of the race looking at the video i think things started when chris maries try to get past chris a at cascades , chris maries went round the outside and it looks like chris a turn into him strange move you see the wheel turn in the cockpit ????.

and when chris m caught chris a up at lodge yet again strange moves by chris a and down the avenue ??????.

anyway both want their heads banging together

motorracing is surposed to be fun

lets hope cadwell is a better race

Chris a didnt turn into Chris m he was clipped and when you get such a thing happen in the wet on a corrner you have to corect it a we bit or you will crash.
I was there and did see it with both eyes.

Just watched the Videos, really great to see the action from the drivers view point, some scary stuff.

Like you say loys of action and some great racing. Good quality video as well even in fullscreen.

Any pictures of the ZCar line up?
