Rally of the Tests. Prologue.

After hours of plotting, planning and anticipation finally some action!

The car has received some carb fettling to try to overcome running problems and initially felt fine. However, after a while it was running rough again. The current theory being fuel evaporation caused by the close proximity of the exhaust.

Test one was slow….and dark! So not an amazing start.

Regularity 1 went smoothly with only a few seconds lost through a ford so OK. GaugePilot absolute perfect against the route instructions!

Regularity 2 was OK until missing a hairpin left into a forest. Distracted by a parked car with its lights on. Dropped a minute…. Poor excuse but there you go.

Test 2 was exactly the same as Test 1 but faster, and better, so happier and getting ready for tomorrow. 

We can only go up the leader board.

Safely back at the Hotel.
