|Not only did the wheel arch leave the Mini, but the Rolling Johnstones pushed on as well.
They were on a much tighter time scale than us, and we were slowing them down. Being in a convoy has its advantages, but it can slow you down as well. For example filling up multiple petrol tanks and stomachs takes considerably longer than doing the same for one team.
Given the problems that we had several hours later, they were lucky they left when they did.
