I can’t remember ever being in the bottom three cars but we left Durham 1hr 33minutes after the first car. The Vauxhall now running as sweetly as ever. The approach to the last day was to treat it as the first and be as competitive as possible.. Great plan but without any way of measuring distance it would prove a challenge on regularities.
A very hectic day with about 5 regularity tests and 3 speed tests ensued with remarkable efficiency considering our handicap. Timing was good and the tests executed accurately and at maximum pace. Our efforts were rewarded by a finish position 12 places above our start at 81st.
Alistair Caldwell and Catriona Rings won the event in his splendid Alfa 6C with most of the usual suspects in the top ten places. Particular mention should go to ‘novice’ Peter Little who navigated William Medcalfs Bentley to 8th place. I suspect his intimate knowledge of sheep handling helped him out.
The old course.
