Difficult day at the John Overend Memorial rally; struggled on the wet morning stages against the 4wd cars lying 6th O/A and 1st 2wd car by nearly 2 minutes at lunch. Stages dried out in the afternoon and pushed harder causing a rear coil over damper to snap putting it through the tyre, the boys repaired it in service then on the last stage front ball joint snapped for no reason other than fatigue. game over - just wasn't meant to be. The plan was to shake the car down before George taking it in the woods in 3 weeks time, on the positive side at least it broke on an airfield and not in the forest - it could of been a very different story ! Plus I got to spend some quality time with my son in a sport we both enjoy. Congrats to the club/marshals for putting on the event and to all the award winners. Also the juniors did themselves proud again ? ... See more
