well, all three cars made it down (on the rock sliders....) but we also had to help to two std Disco's down as well (No rock sliders and little experience).
to say that the drivers were cacking themselves is an understatement. They were very VERY grateful for our help and they and thier wives were very happy to get down in one piece.

very controlled (it needed to be!!!)
You would have done it Mark, but it was a bit of a moment when we first got to it....

Was that a black or gold run? Problem is once you got there you are well and truely committed. 97 percent enjoyment and 3 percent sheer panic. :thumbright:


If only I could think of something useful to type here!! :(
