Russell's notes......

 Well after a very successful 2013, 458 has now undergone the essential maintenance and servicing that she deserves.

Terry will keep you up to date on 458 during 2014, and we look forward to another good year this year. 

For all of you that want to talk XS458 I've set up a face book page - lightningt5group - So if you have anything to say or just wish to listen in, join me there. Hope to chat with you soon.

Best wishes

Russell Carpenter, Owner.

Thunder Run Update 4th November 2014
 Hi All,
We completed a change of the No.2 Engine Filter last Saturday and had a successful Engine Start on the No.2 Engine.
It appears that we still have a problem with the electrics on the start cart, Colin and myself will be checking this out next Saturday.
I will continue to keep you up to date and look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Hi All,

Due to the problems that we have recently experienced we have cancelled the remaining Thunders Runs this year.

We will be working hard over the next few months to get 458 serviceable and back up to Run Status.
