On the subject of tyres, we tried some old racing wets we had not used before. The Michelin tyre van old out of wets; couldn't spend on tyres but did have a chat with them and they mentioned it!

Are there any other events other than the Goodwood stages in February where spectators are allowed. I always attend the Goodwood stages in addition to the MJN event at Brands but other than these there are very few events in the South.

18th February, Snetterton Stages. We have decided not to enter this year.

March is Bovington although you can only view from the tank viewing area as spectators are not allowed.

Depending whether you are an “all day” spectator or like to pop in for a couple of hours only, have you thought about marshalling? There are lots of different roles from stage start to stage finish to out on stage to other volunteering roles which are admin type based etc. You may not see as much car action as spectating but could be a way of becoming involved for those events which are non-spectator eg mainly MOD places.

Thanks for that, I'm considering Snetterton although Norfolk in February is even less hospitable than Goodwood. Having lived and worked in the area in the 70's I speak from personal experience! I have attended race meetings of all sorts from 750mc events to F1 and just about everything inbetween and whilst I have the greatest admiration for the orange army I have never been tempted to join their ranks. I did manage the Tempest rally a winters back but it's now been abandoned, roll on the South Downs stages.
I'm still convinced that some of Saturday's competitors were running TC.

I would guess if you spending upwards of 100 grand on an Escort then the ECU and electronics would have it fitted.

A few of the Darrians I saw a few years back were running it, and the kit cars had it fitted as standard as factory cars. so maybe the 306 has it fitted too.

Certainly not a complex of expensive thing to have on a car these days, simply need the sensors and electronics package to run it, but in most rallying it serves no purpose as you need to slide, depending on the car.
