I was up there too camped in the other field! Thought I spotted your van but wasn't sure if it was the one off here. Looking bang on by the way ImageImage.

How did you get on in the race? First one I've done up there, really enjoyed it! Although it'll be too soon if I see another push up or greasy tree root again.... Image

Hopefully that was my last weekend kipping on the floor of the van, should be collecting a tilt and slide bed from Flatout campers this week all being well! ImageImageImage

Thanks mate
It did get quite a bit of attention

Erm well I survived which was the main thing haha
I didn't do that well to be fair but I had no injuries and didn't come last, but I completed it which is what I set out to do

Clutch pedal went to the floor on my way home from work, managed to limp it home.

Had it recovered to my mates garage, replaced the slave cylinder, made no difference so everything is pointing towards the master cylinder now ImageImage

I reckon that's about 6 clutch master cylinders I've heard of which have failed in the last week.
Should be an easy fix.

Is there an upgraded master cylinder available to buy at all? Or anything else that’ll fit? As Doc says, it’s quite common. I’ve been a victim of it myself. I think the whole body cracks.
