Cheers Gavin,

We had a really good run and Worth was excellent. It was a bit wet and a lot of cars struggled in Salisbury Plain, but the scimitar well.

Here is a report if anyone is interested.

Well done, Jon, that's a great result! :D :hurrah:

It sounds from the report as though it was a tough event, glad you managed to conquer the conditions.I was interested to read their comment
...heavy rain and flooding, highlighting the need for reliable electrics and efficient wiper motors.
:shock:
