Murphy's law, eh? Since you've mentioned it, and I'm Murphy, I insist you apply my rule that "Murphy always wins"

This is a common misconception (often held by those named Murphy). However, Murphy's Law (colloquially stated as "anything that can go wrong will go wrong" or more scientifically as "the perversity of the universe tends to a maximum") is a universal axiom, and so applies equally to Murphy. Hence the corollary "Murphy has to let you win once in a while just so you'll keep playing the game". With so many other somebodys out there needing to satisfy this rule, Murphy in fact very seldom gets to win him or her self.
Still playin'. Still waitin' for my win .

Woohoo! actually maintained my qualifying spot Thanks Jack!
Congrats to podiumites Phil, Dickie and Alexis, comisserations to Don, who may have had his hopes for a podium finish raised by looking at the position posting in the spreadsheet, only to realize that it was Murphy toying with his emotions (ya still finished two laps up on me tho').

cheers
Scott

Red face U class



All were a pleasure to drive, except the # 7 has a nasty habit of "bouncing" all over the place. A wonder it didn't de-slot, really strange little bugger. Also some of the "wee ones" did not have glued tires...might be helpful and might also be helpful if wheel bearings were glued in. Could make a tenth or two of difference

Great looking bunch of "O Class" cars this year. That's mainly because Dickie # 02 is in A/B Class
