In damp and slippery conditions David and Emily drove almost faultlessly to the win with no Time Penalties and 1 missed code board. One went missing on the night so was excluded from the results. I expect that Dave was pressing on a bit missing code board 57 which was on the A436 between the Air Balloon and Seven Springs!
In second place with no missed code boards but 20 time penalties were Jon and Alastair , another great result.
In 3rd accompanied by a first time navigator (he only turned up to take some photos) were Kev and Callum.
4th Were Leighton and Craig who explored the local shrubbery just before TC3.
5th Were Jeff and Josh who struggled a bit keeping to the time schedule and having to cutting route in places.
Finally commiserations to Phil and Nick who again had to retire with Nick feeing a bit “Uncle Dick”, and to Martin Davis and Adam Lister who both found them selves without navigators, then paired up only to be foiled at the last minute by an ABS problem with Martin’s Subaru.
Thanks go to Martin Saunders for an interesting and challenging route, especially that rogue yellow that did for my front splitter when setting out the boards. He did go out and amazingly retrieved it frozen to the middle of the track! Also to Phil, Rich and Dave, Martin and James, Dave and Doreen and Gaff for marshalling.
The next round is being organised by Jon and Alastair on Friday 16th February, book your place on the website.
