It was that time of the year again for a trip over to Elvington outside York for the Scooby Shootout. Things didn’t go quite according to plan when one of the cars decided to start leaking oil before we’d even got the length of Carlisle. Thankfully a boot full of tools and a bit of tinkering got us going again for the run down to Chesterfield.
Saturday was spent at a "Scooby specialist" where the oil problem was properly fixed and a remap and rolling road session saw the monster ready for action. A short run up to York got us some much deserved food,liquid refreshment and sleep.
9AM on sunday morning and there was already a crowd starting to gather at Elvington. Racing started at 10.30 and carried on till about 3PM when the top 8 cars starting going head to head in pairs until a winner was decided.
