Started in high spirits with the roof down over the Humber Bridge. The car started to cough and splutter making us late at the first of 15 time controls. Carb off, cleaned and rebuilt 1 minute within our maximum lateness and off again.. 2 controls later saw us stopped at the side of the road for a third time. Carb off, auto vac flushed, jets removed and cleaned, fuel filter fitted and away…way too late to follow the route so straight to lunch..late….miss the North Yorks Moor loop and back on time…hurrah! However the Brantz trip meter had had enough with no display so I had to go ‘with the force’ for distances. Made the hotel (and bar) without drama
And had a go at fixing the Brantz.. No good. But managed to Fix Mickey Gabbets clutch. A massive drop to 91st place sees a late start today.
Wish us luck we can only go up the field.
