Broken boat :(

A painful and brief Stuttgart race weekend for me. 1st day, first race, first lap.  Getting  massive t-bone in the side from some over ambitious driving left me and my boat feel very sorry for ourselves. Ripped out thrust bearing, snapped carbon engine mount, split nose and buggered shaft tube... At least it didn't get any worse than that, oh wait! That's right I managed to throw martins boat upside-down at the start of the 7.5cc final that he was odds on to win...

Epic fail.

Big well done to all of the winners. Some great racing throughout the weekend. Big thanks to our hosts for great food and drink (including the grappa). And still amazed nobody ended up on their arse in the huge rivers of mud!

P.s. all Stuttgart pics will be up soon.
