    Niall's 'report': (Chris - hope you don't mind!)

    A very enjoyable rally set by Chris with a nice mixture of roads (including one that was closed!) For the most part the roads were dry and things ran pretty slickly though as usual we didn't make the pub and Mel and I ended up at the finish after Chris and Carl who were the two marshals!

    Simon's legendary 205 XS, at last on the road, though missing 2nd gear, claimed its first rally victory with Phil - a complete novice - navving. Quite an acheivement! It didn't even break down and Simon seemed pretty pleased with his mean machine.

    Matt's 306 neither sunk or exploded this time and it was good to see him again as our Tuesday socials have been devoid of his presence for some time.

    Lauren and Steph did well for their first time on experts - it's not that bad, really! Their time on the 1st stage wasn't helped by missing the TC and driving some way down the road - I couldn't work out where they'd got to as they'd been ahead of us for some time previously.

    Personally, I really enjoyed the drive and probably drove better (harder smile image ) than I have before. The smell of my brakes confirmed as much wink image I don't even recall any particular 'OHMIGOD' moments for a change, not even at Simon's 'corner of death'.

    I think it's fair to say everyone had a good time, I just hope we can get a few more people along for the next one.
