We arrived from Zurich last night in the trusty Volvo after an eight hour drive and were treated to a great night out with an old friend of Herman’s who is now resident here. Great food and bars if you know where is best!
Scruitineering today and paperwork handouts to check and plot…plus a new limited edition 20th Anniversary Winter Trial watch.
Dinner and start party tonight and the first car starts at 08:30 Tomorrow.
I think we are now ready to go.
Here we go again.. sunny Torquay is our starting point and we Finish on Sunday in Chester.
The evening prologue that determines the seeding for tomorrow starts in a couple of hours and all the maps are plotted and I’m ready to go.
This year I’m competing with my old friend Michael Kunz In his stealthy Volvo 240. We did LeJog in this unlikely rally car a couple of years ago and it’s got a lot of good Points; warm, comfortable, quiet, strong and fast enough, however, it’s quite big and not very agile on the tests.
This should be a lot of fun.
