The alarm went at 05.30 to start the journey to Bournemouth. Meeting Michael on the way we arrived by 09.30 in his beautiful a Fiat 2300 coupe. A Grand Touring car in the true sense. Comfortable powerful and smooth.
With apprehension, the evening started at 19.00 with a test around the Winter Gardens and onto a tricky regularity. The test was OK with only a minor error requiring a quick reverse to solve.
The reg was good and GaugePilot with its new ‘Twintime’ software did us proud until we ‘wrong slotted’ at a junction costing us a minute in penalties.
A second test on a Kart circuit went well and we posted quite a fast time considering the size of the car.
Overall a decent couple of hours rallying and looking forward to the event proper tomorrow.
