I have got back from Gods own county today after a very long weekend.
I travelled up to Yorkshire Friday stopping a Jims gaff to drop of some bits.Parked up at my parents house and went on the lash with my old pals from home.
Saturday was spent fitting my new front springs to raise the car.This was made easier with the help from my Dad .
(If I can still fit SS1 springs at the age of 78 that will do me)
We celebrated with Yorkshire fish and chips and a beer sat watching the F1 qualy highlights recorded earlier.
Sunday was another early start to pick up Chris Owen my navigator for the day.
The SS1 decided it wouldn't start so my mum towed me up the road in the Land Rover ( in her PJ's at 0545 in the morning)
With Chris and n the car we drove to Patley bridge for sign on and scrutterning ,I hate this bit because if you fail that's it ,all for nothing your going home.
We had 18 sections ahead of us abs about 80 miles ,so a fairly intense trial.
We cleared the first few sections picking up max scores,however as we were a96 of 104 we were inheriting some well chewed up sections from previous cars and motorbikes.
The car had one hissy fit on fuel starvation but other than that she did well ,and no burst tyres.
Not sure about where we have come in the scoring but as my first on day championship round event ,I am relatively pleased and Chris thoroughly enjoyed his day.
I have some pics of the event but the files are to big and don't know how to reduce them on the iPad.
