Hoping to get this sorted when I have the time.
Hope it gets sorted - can't you jump in with your mate Josh?

Nope neither Alan or Marcel will be attending, after yesterdays unfortunate events both cars will be off the road for some time.
For anyone interested, a car on the opposite carriageway had a blowout and hit the central reservation sending bits of Armco and other debris right into their path, both drivers are fine but considerable damage has been caused to the wheels and under carriage of Marcels car and Alans has a smashed sub frame as well as other damage.
