It does indeed, and we have the same challenges in the Micra with gearing. Likewise, we don't have the budget to change it for each venue so have the best compromise we can. But then, we've only had a trailer for a year rather than having to drive the rally car to events on the road!

Thanks for the info Bert, it's always more interesting to get a competitor's take.

Nice to see a few people had scattered the cones at Druids and made a mess of Mr Palmer's precious grass.

Always a nice touch, hope no-one got any damage from the cones etc, these events at his tracks are really only sprints to be honest, shame they don't use more other areas. there is plenty of option to do so, but I expect that would also mean the event using long track and we can't have that can we noise police.

Iím sorry to read the rather less positive comments above, but perhaps they are somewhat tongue in cheek. Given the almost total lack of rallying in the south, I for one am glad that there are any events to attend and photograph. IIRC dealings with the the Forestry Commission up north could be challenging from time to time.

My photos will be available soon ...

My comments are not tongue in cheek I am afraid, I have attended a few of these MSV events and they are only rallies by name and the fact you have to do stages.

In every other way they are pretty much sprints, I understand why, and I also understand why there are not any events down South.

That does not mean they are necessarily decent events. They are a way for Palmer to make money at his venues off season, hence why he sumps up a prize fund and allows events at his tracks, it is a business decison nothing more.

As a spectacle they are poor to say the least, probably fun to drive in if not particularly challenging compared to a proper single venue.

They serve a need, that need is not mine.

Nice You got a few of us in there

Looks like nobody caught our broadside moment at Paddock I was hoping somebody got a photo of that but I've not seen anything so far.

That seems to be the common theme - people saw it, went "oooh!" but didn't catch it on camera. It was a typical "cold rear tyres on fwd car" paddock moment - certainly an interesting experience - I was expecting to end up backwards in the gravel but James gave it a bootful and got it straightened up nicely. Made an interesting contrast to how the Escort would have behaved in a similar situation.
