Classic Marathon days 3 & 4

Yesterday was difficult for me, too many mistakes and a poor result, however the roads and scenery were spectacular and we laughed a lot. The hill climb and car museum were fast and fun. Today has been a proper rallying day, complicated and fast regularities, a kart circuit test, twisty lanes and steep hills, perfect. With a bit of luck we can keep it up tomorrow……

Today was much better

Classic Marathon day 2

An amazing day, fantastic roads and scenery. The regularities were difficult and fast, faster than my out of practice brain at times so we had a poor day for penalties. Lunch was excellent and after the last reg (we did that pretty well) a puncture. We changed the wheel quickly and we’re on our way. The hotel put on a very good drinks reception, Portuguese rose wine is great, and a fine dinner.

Winter Trial 2020 days 5 and 6

What a couple of days! A long Thursday and into the night was very tough, hard navigation and variable conditions. The snow never came but intermittent ice kept everyone on their toes. Fridays sting in the tail was a hard regularity in interesting maps!

Anyhow here are a load of pictures that hopefully capture the atmosphere;

Winter Trial 2020 day 4

Another dryish day with ice on the high passes. It’s been busy with 6 regs and one big test but hugely enjoyable.

Snow is predicted for tomorrow night, 10cms and still falling,?yhat should make it interesting!
