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.

The AGBO stages, Weston Park

After speaking with a couple of people who competed in the event last year and said how brilliant it was we were very keen to compete. We sent off our entry the day the regs came out and were pleased to get a run. In fact, there ended up being four crews on the event … Continue reading »

Cambrian Rally 2012

At very short notice we decided that we would enter this years Cambrian Rally. We competed in the event in 2009 and it was my first ever forest rally, so I was keen to go back again. After finding out that the final stage of the day would be round the Great Orme we were … Continue reading »

Better late than never…a review of the Harry Flatters

After insisting that we wouldn’t be doing the recce for this event, we rolled up onto the ranges and paid our £10 to complete the recce. After one pass we decided we’d had enough and went back to the B and B. I found the recce very helpful in getting used to the peculiarities of … Continue reading »

The Plains Rally 2012

This was my first event in a car that isn’t a 205! I was still in a Peugeot so I didn’t get withdrawal symptoms too badly. I co-drove for Nigel Hunt in his 309 GTI. It was nice to sit in a car with a bit more power and starting at 9:51 meant that I … Continue reading »
