1000 Mile Trial final day

Slightly frustrating as there was a lot of traffic on the regularities of the morning but in the end it was pretty much the same for everyone.

We finished in style at the RAC club at Woodcote park at the final test. The Results were finalised and we were 13th Overall and 1st in Class. Gerd says next year we bring a faster car! Watch this space….

    I am not sure that the big lagondas are not fast enough, only that the bodywork weighs tons. All those faster cars have replaced it with cycle wings made of feathers! Driving tests are never going to be won by original tourers! Well done you guys.

    You hit the nail on the head. The tests were the Achilles heal for the car. It just doesn’t have enough lock for tight cone tests but has enough speed to do regularities with success.
