It sounds like an "interesting" off-season... I'm now curious what the heck was going on to make the apology necessary! Between that and the saga of the S&S posted above, I only hope the racing on the track puts the off-track stuff into the shade when it gets going.
Being at such a distance now I only wish whoever scheduled the away rounds hadn't decided to send different series to different tracks quite some distance apart on the same weekend - had those been different weekends I'd have tried to make both, as it is, choosing between Oulton and Cadwell will be tricky! I'll probably see how the grids look for the relevant series once we start racing
