1000 Mile Trial final day

Slightly frustrating as there was a lot of traffic on the regularities of the morning but in the end it was pretty much the same for everyone.

We finished in style at the RAC club at Woodcote park at the final test. The Results were finalised and we were 13th Overall and 1st in Class. Gerd says next year we bring a faster car! Watch this space….

1000 Mile Trial day 4

Another great day but a bit frustrating as there is so much more traffic in the south causing road delays on regularity sections. Mostly tractors delivering harvested hay.

How very a minimum of penalties were issued and we are currently in a strong  13th overall with the class lead. Sensible running should maintain this in ‘home turf’ tomorrow for the finish.

1000 Mile Trial day 3

As i’m often told it’s always sunny in Wales, and it was. Great driving roads and scenery. A superb day with an improved result. We start tomorrow 1st in class and 14th overall. We still have not  played  our penalty joker with only only three others so this may be a bit of a safety net later…

Here are some pictures from the very sunny Welsh lanes.

1000 Mile Trial day 2

A wet start we pre-empted by raising the roof yesterday. The day has been good with no regularity penalty worse than 5 seconds at any control. A few other misdemeanours though. 

There wasn’t much chance to take any good photos today but I’ve nicked a couple from Mike Dabell who came with Richard Sherwood to Chatsworth to greet us into the lunch halt. Thanks for coming chaps!

1000mile Trial day 1

A cracking day in the sun with vintage cars, what could be finer. A good day on the regularities but some penalties on the tests see us leading the class but 18th over all the last time I looked at the results. Anyway it’s a long way to go so here are some of my pictures and the proper ones are from fellow IGPG Photographer Robert Clayson who spotted us on route this afternoon.

L-L penultimate day

It’s been a cracking day with fantastic roads and stunning scenery. Some of the best rallying I’ve done in the daylight!

The final test on a hill climb finished the day perfectly. We are both exhausted now and have turned in early ready for the last push, we’ve closed the gap to Drexel and Pat to under a minute so it’s all to play for tomorrow.
