| Congrats to Paul Darlington and co-driver Peter Lumsden for pushing a 96V4 to it's limits on the Tour of Mull rally at the weekend. Even more notable as both had not been out on an event for a while.|
They finished 63rd out of 160 starters and 3rd in class - all with only a 1500cc engine up against much more modern machinery. They took a minute out of an EVO on the last stage a 14 miler!
This is the last of the "proper" events with flat out stages over the closed and twisty roads of Mull in three legs. Leg 1 Friday evening into the early hours with Leg 2 starting Saturday lunchtime through until early evening and then the final leg all in darkness Saturday late evening again until the early hours of Sunday morning. One of the last true rallying events like it was in the '70's - only wish I could have been there!
