Great to see the Daimler mechanics at work today on the DLOC Stand.

Of course the unexpected additional work of rebuilding Grahams DB18 engine after the headgasket failure on Thursday, meant that even more tea and
talk and head-scratching was needed.

I even saw the worlds oldest apprentice (Stan) wielding a spanner or two.

Hope you have more fun on Sat and Sun
