Winter Trial. A difficult first Regularity.

RSM1.1 was the first competitive test for us and all went well for 1.75km.

Unfortunately we met an elderly local driver on a slippery hairpin and suffered quite a pit of damage. Nobody was hurt and the police attended but were not interested in apportioning blame so left swiftly having shaken everyone’s hands.

A little photo story follows;

The initial damage.

With the help of a tree and a towing strap the wheel was released and the wing became a better shape.

Good as new…..!

At the night stop Job and his team of mechanics cut the damage off and made the best they could of the mangled metal

Spotlight robbed to replace the smashed headlamp, indicator strapped on and cibie lens taped back in complete the repair.

We are dead last having lost loads of time but tomorrow is another day…..
