    I have to get my application in by then end of March, then should find out at the end of April if I'm in. Would be brill if anyone could come and watch if I'm lucky enough to get selected.

  18. The application deadline is fast approaching so I've been cracking on with the design.

    I've got the chassis all planned out and the steering, to make the Mk2 Beav-mobile a 4 wheeler. The body plan is making sense in my head, although I haven't managed to express that on paper just yet.

    Along with design drawings, I'm allowed to submit pretty much anything I want to strengthen my application, not limited to photos, videos, models etc.

    Did anyone who was at Eastnor manage to get any video of my runs?

    or does anyone have any other suggestions of what I can submit to them to give me the best shot of getting accepted.


    Beav :)
