Yes fans we are into the last month of the world famous WWC.  Dont forget that the WWC ends 20 mins before last light on Saturday 31st August ....

So an update and we have a new leader in the Distance trophy !!!....who would have predicted this ?   Scott J. has ditched his trusty steed of many, many years gone by, the " White Ant Express" , for his hangar bashing, gel coat peeling "Victory Ventus" and has goose stepped into first place on the Distance Trophy ladder with an outstanding 303.73 OLC points for his 286.31 km romp last Sunday.   The conditions are only going to get better .....Cumulus Carl is still in there at 2nd with the Tony Stealth Man /Smiling Assassin Scarlett lurking in third place with the Distance and smashing the Points with 54 !!!
