The 99 of Andrew Street failed to finish the night stages and we fried the engine on our Skoda when a waterpipe came off mid stage.
Next round is the Astra stages in three weeks in North Wales, see you there...

|15/03/2005 07:52:13||Richard||It was good from a spectators point of view. After watching the historics, the moderns had no commitment, the 4x4 brigade were out on a Sunday drive.|

Both did a bit of Pa Taket...|

|22/03/2005 23:14:55||Alistair||Yep, red Mk 1 Cortina also went over on the same bend & ended up well-squashed.|
