Mind you the shots show the D4s in somewhat of a positive light. Reality was a shade different with respect to maintaining forward movement, certainly compared with the humble D3. Noel's car excepted. :whistle: :whistle: :lol:

Sounds like the Freebie 1 that had trashed his clutch. F1 was attached to a stuck Deafner that was attached to another stuck Deafner that were all being pulled out by another Deafner. All on flat & level sand, we were just driving around with impunity just to rub it in. We didn't hang around to see how it ended but they were still all connected when they got to the centre at the end. :lol: :lol: :lol:

John has pics on his camera, taken by moi. :mrgreen:
