The first day got off to a good start with an easy test and accurate regularity. Roof down and clear skies!
A busy time ensued with a total of 5 tests and 3 regularity navigation sections. The heavens opened at around 3pm and wet gear went on and the hood up. We are relatively snug in the Vauxhall compared with some of the open sports cars but we still can’t see (no wipers) or stop. There is absolutely no sign of a water shortage in the fens or Lincolnshire.
The last test at Blyton Park Raceway was particularly testing as we could not see the marker comes for standing water and rain on both sides of the windscreen. Geoff even took pity on the tweed clad Start Marshall and gave him an umbrella.
We finished the day in 55th place, just about midfield. Pretty good going for probably the slowest car on the event.
It’s not all chaps driving. Georgina Riley at the wheel of her father Julians lovely little Riley Sprite.
