I was in Dyfnant yesterday and know a few people entered, one of whom I've just seen a photo of being towed out of Crychan which I think was SS29 of 30 (albeit, actually fewer than 30). Was a good event, the top few drivers were absolutely on it, although the second run through was a bit more tentative because I think there was a lot of ice as it got dark.

Congratulations to Ryan Champion, not just for winning but for being the first non Escort winner in the history of the event.

I watched the second Crychan stage - the final competitive stage of the event - from the double hairpin a mile or so from the finish, the last point where there are groups of spectators. It was great seeing the drivers waving, blowing the horn and flashing lights as the loony hardcore fans cheered them home in the gloom. There was a huge cheer for the Porsche - a classic example of "to finish first, first you have to finish" and a masterful drive.

The cars looked properly battered and I'm sure the crews felt the same. This is a very special event.

It was very much a throwback to how events used to be won; fast, but at a pace enabling a finish.

Pictures from the Rallynuts Stages (aka Severn Valley Stages) from mid-November: https://bit.ly/3ooFBqH

Taken over two stages at Myherin, a really good viewing stage with a pathway on a raised bank along a lot of the gravel track. The first half of this album is from walking along a couple of miles or so of it; the second half are from a single lovely spot where I had cars coming from the left, dipping into a rutted corner to turn then scooting off into the trees. Fairly grimy weather, but then it was mid-Wales in mid-November . Enjoy!

Thanks for sharing those

Is it just me or do Skoda Fabias always make great looking rally cars?

The weather conditions look like ideal rally weather to me

Some of those are great - looks like the conditons were great for photography, the light in some of those is really nice and getting a rainbow in shot is always good Nice mix of cars too - good to see a 6R4 in amongst it too - do you know if that's a proper 6R4? There was one running a Millington engine a while back (so more of a 4R4).

I think I heard on the PA that the Metro has a Nissan engine. Programme quotes as 2995 cc

Interesting - presumably it's cheaper to run and easier to get parts for. The big question is - does it sound as good?

Mmm, it sounds good, but I think it misses that bark I first heard in Dalby in 1985 ...
