Winter Trial day 6

The last morning always holds some surprises.
The first one was entirely my fault. A wrong slot out of the hotel sent us 10k the wrong direction! Never done that before and never again.

Needless to say by the time it was sorted we were running late and had to cut out the test at a previously used track to get back on schedule.

Farewell snow and ice!

It was good to get back on ice to start the reconfigured regularity,which proved simple enough, and onto the time control before a navigational section.
This was tricky but had none of the nasty ‘tulip’ map errors. Still misses a timing point though.

With much excitement all the competitors collected at the hotel to cheer each other on with gluvine in hand. It seems the only other Brit on the event Ryan Pickering navigated the winning car at his first attempt. Fantastic!

I expect some beer will be drunk later!

Herman the Volvo and me!
