Wild Bunch Round
4 and Real Steel Round 6
Friday 15th July '05
Thursday and Friday.
Team Twisted took a detour on the
way to the track.. We left on Wednesday night and went via Loughborough!
Dean's graduation ceremony was held on Thursday and the whole team and the
Belle went to watch, but the Belle had to stay in the car park. Dean
received his Masters Degree in Automotive Systems Engineering (with a
Distinction) in the sweltering heat, before celebrating with fine food and
Dean receives his Masters
Degree and Top Student Award..... Ooooo smarty pants!
As always the "whole" team
includes Pooky and Penny, and Pooky was not to be out done and wore his
matching graduation outfit. It's not the first time Pooky has strutted his
stuff at a graduation ceremony since he first graduated 10 years ago (B.Sc. in
Psychology) with his mum.
A great time was had by all
including the Belle who received some welcome attention in the car park.
Another girl on wheels!
There's no stopping them!
Little did the Uni know but it
was a joint effort...
Attack of the giant spiders!
Just in case we forget...
(just like our other team motto... "Righty-tighty, lefty-loosy", just for
those with memory issues...)
Since we had
the whole day off on Friday, we had a leisurely drive to the track which was
as empty as we've ever seen it. Christine took full advantage of the open
pit area for a spot of inline skating, whilst Helen and Dean had a fight
with the biggest spider's web you've ever seen! Okay, so it was awning
lights really, but it wasn't easy!
The team also applied their new
stickers to the van (thanks to Demonscream) in time for their visitors
