    Despite tricky icy conditions for SS1 at Brands Hatch yesterday, the whole event ran tremendously well thanks to the sterling efforts of the set up and change round teams lead by Mark Andrews  - Mandrews, Mandy or even Manboobs to his friends !

    Mark is the Assistant Clerk of the Course responsibe for stage layout & set up. He's OCD with his cone alignement but we love him.

    I will hereby name check the whole set up team, and to see if you are reading this allow you to remind of the people I forget.

  • The Preston 2017

    Winners of the 2017 Preston: Mark Banham / Mathew Smalley

    Well, now that the dust has settled, (probably a misleading turn of phrase) I thought I ought to say a few words about our surprising weekend. It started on Friday when, after Thursday’s test run, I found I had a leak in the fuel tank, so spent Saturday changing that. I struggled with the fittings and was so frustrated I nearly throw in the towel. And I was about to leave on Saturday evening but couldn’t get any sidelights on one side of the van or any on the trailer. I ended up cable-tying 2 inspection lights with red film to the back of the trailer! We were a bit late getting to scrutineering, and were amazed to see the queue ahead of us! This meant we were going to be late getting to the Little Chef :-(

  • Wales Rally GB - Random musings by Paul Hernaman

    As work and house moves have faded away the lure to go out and stand in a forest to have mud and stones thrown at me after standing in cold, damp conditions for an hour beforehand has risen. Last year I wandered across to Wales to watch the rally on the Friday/Saturday with partial success. The partial bit being despite getting up at an early hour the crowds to get into Dyfi and Gartheiniog had to be seen to be believed and accordingly I missed a chunk of the first run.

  • The Preston, The Future

    Hands up who loves the Preston Rally. Good, that’s all of you, now pay attention because
    this is important. For the unaware, The One and Only has two very real problems. These are
    related, the first being bad enough but the second is potentially fatal for the event.
    Regrettably I am quite serious, in case you’d not realised it, this very special sporting event is
    truly in jeopardy.
