Re: Latest restrictions. Rallys

With regard to the Ecky Thump rally, we shall see what transpires. I will keep it as is for the time being, we have a month to see if restrictions are loosened.
I will update accordingly but if necessary pull the plug within a week of the rally (unless 6 want meet up!)

I have also used it to start a few local small cars. Good bit of kit.
