A day at Rally School

On 18th June I spent the day at Phil Price Rally school doing an intensive 1 day course and my BARS test. It was an early start from my house to get to the rally school for 8:30am. The course started with Phil giving an introduction to rallying. He talked through all the basics including … Continue reading »

A plan for 2017

This year I’m planning to do the BARS course and test so that I can get my novice drivers license. I have already purchased a ‘Go Rallying’ pack and now need to learn how to be a rally driver…not a small task!

Solway Coast Rally 2016, PokerStars Rally 2016 and Hall Trophy Rally 2016

We competed in 3 rallies in the second half of 2016. The first of these, the Solway Coast rally in August was great fun. We had an early start and a long drive up to Kirkcudbright for the event, but we agreed it was worth it. The stages were brilliant and the car went well. … Continue reading »

Manx National 2016

I was very excited to return to the Isle of Man, having had such a good time competing in the Pokerstars Rally in November 2015. We had spent a while before leaving going over the route to see which parts we already had pacenotes for and made these into a booklet in preparation for the … Continue reading »

Poker Stars 2015

My first trip to do a rally on the Isle of Man was definitely as good as I expected it to be. We went the weekend before the event to make and check the pacenotes. We decided that we would make our own notes instead of buying them. It was my first time writing notes … Continue reading »

Mini Epynt Stages 31/5/15

It was a very early start for us. Patrick and Nigel (our mechanic) left Derby at 3.30am and picked me up in Tewkesbury at 5.30am. After an 18 month break from rallying I was certain I would have forgotten what to do. Fortunately after leaving MC1 it was all starting to come back to me. … Continue reading »

A New Gearbox

The 205 “Betsy” has now been fitted with a close ratio dog gearbox. We ordered a gear set to fit into the existing BE3 gearbox from a Dutch company called Drenth who were extremely helpful in assisting us to buy the parts we needed. The maiden voyage of the new (and hopefully improved) 205 will … Continue reading »

Wales Rally GB National 2013

Thursday 14th November We arrived in the service area in plenty of time to set up our pitch before heading off to scrutineering and noise check. At scrutineering we discovered the brake lights had stopped working, so although we passed these had to be fixed before the event started. Thanks to our mechanic Chris for … Continue reading »

The Woodpecker 2013

After having a great time on this event in 2010 I was keen to compete in it again. As we had some gravel tyres in stock we decided it was as good an excuse as any to put in an entry. Scrutineering and noise control were completed without incident and we were eager for the … Continue reading »

The plan for 2013

After the success of Weston Park we have decided that we want to compete in more Tarmac events. We are planning to enter the Mini Epynt stages in June and the Tyneside Stages in August. Because we also have some forest tyres in stock we are also thinking of doing the Woodpecker.
