21st June 2008.

To all 47 race teams and all of the organising staff who supported and took part in the Round Britain Race in 2008, I will be raising a glass (or two) tomorrow in memory of the great time we had five years ago on the 21st June 2008, also to absent friends.
ML.

Mike,
Everyone loved it, please, please, please organise another one. I have this sneaky suspicion that Cowes to Monte Carlo is too expensive for many people, but RB would be more affordable.
Can you be persuaded ?
Kind regards
James
