Now that we have a tiny bit of history to the Cartie Challenge, I think we should record it in the time honoured way by naming corners after significant events.

Obviously the first bend has to be called "Jim Moir's" (Jimmies), but all the others are up for grabs.

Tom suggested "The Slammer" for the second bend, in memory of the massive high side get-off that the Tequila Slammer had as its offside rear wheel folded.

The chicane claimed a couple of victims, and could easily be called "Weasel's End" or "Richtoven's Revenge". Any other suggestions?

I like "The Bush" as the name for the last corner though, just because it's funny to hear the "the greased weasel is now going into the bush" being said over the PA...

yes have to confess I enjoyed saying "the Bush" far too much on Sunday...... but perhaps we could do more of a play on the theme by calling it "Hairy" or something......

my vote for the first chicane is "Dogfight Chicane" and fully support "Jimmies" and "the Slammer"

I like 'Jimmies' and 'The Slammer'

I like the name 'Weasel's End' for the chicane corner - it has a country feel about it (Tales of the Riverbank)

'The Bush' is strong without further description (and conotations!)

It also allows future commentaries using words like:
'He's into The Bush' Very Happy
'He's through The Bush' Smile
'He's over The Bush' Shocked
'He's impaled on The Bush' Crying or Very sad
'The Bush is all over him!' Cool
'The Bush claims another victim' Embarassed
'Bush for president!'Evil or Very Mad
