    a great idea. Thanks for making/ posting this clip. If just the weather would been better and no misfires :)

    Bernd_st, it was still a great day even though the Harrington struggled.

    My wife and I had not seen classic car racing like this before, it was fantastic. This type of racing should get broadcast to a far wider audience on TV, it is so much more exciting that the F1 or Touring car races.

    Thanks all, actually the misfire disappeared over 3000 RPM, and the main problem was brakes sticking on for a few seconds after each application. I now have a new servo and a master cylinder repair kit for sorting over the winter. The video actually makes the weather look reasonable, so I thought you'd like to see what my visibility was like using my new front and back HD camera system. GB ;-)

    Makes you wonder about the size of the balls of the guys that drive the Mulsanne straight at night in the rain at 200mph. Gives me the shivers...

    Glenn, you are a brave guy . Going racing with brakes hanging on in combination with such a bad visibility :oops:. In that context the misfire appears a minor issue...
