London to Lisbon the first 2 days…

For what was expected to be a relaxed rally London to Lisbon has been, so far, quite intense.

The Start from Brooklands immediately sent us south to roads I know well with the first Regularity ending within 500m of my workshop and then on to William Medcalf’s Vintage Bentley Buisness. West from there to Wilton near Salisbury for lunch and the first test before returning via the New Forest and two more regularities to Portsmouth for the overnight crossing to St Malo. A great days rallying all round.

Jane took some great pictures from the start and can be seen here;

An early start off the boat set us off on a 400km cross country trip to Poitiers. Several regs and one kart test kept us busy and so far all is going well with the minimum of penalties leaving us in 16th place (having briefly shared the lead in England) it’s a very long way to go…..
