    Well, with the DET11 campaign you have at least 1 additional overseas follower - fun to read yr stories.
    oh, and just a small remark to a sweat fan of yours, campaigning 'cruisers against the racers': don't worry, there were no highly paid pro teams included, I wish! ...all hard work and absolutely NO pay ;-)

  4. Yvonne, Panther did an outstanding job and was a class act through out. I look forward to following your expolits on the international racing circuit!
