Just to make things interesting the July autosolo was held in wet weather conditions, something that hasn't happened before this year. A decent turnout of 17 crews braved the heavy showers and enjoyed a competetive day out. Once again it was Craig Jones who set the standard but James Chappelle equaled his time on the first test before taking a 'wrong test' later in the day. Alwyn Arrowsmith was also right up there but a couple of wrong tests put paid to a decent result. It was however, refreshing to see Will Arrowsmith complete an autosolo with no mistakes bar a quick donut and take the sideways Escort to 3rd place. Mike Jones took the runner up spot but will be hard pressed to take the championship after some early season 'difficulties'. Josh Jones was fourth, probably still having nightmares about his 2 wheeling hillclimb incident while last months winner Mark Hatton couldn't get in the groove and finished fifth. There were other heroic performances, Alex Jones and Lisa Price had great finishes and Robin Moses could have been quick if he could have reached the pedals and found the right handbrake lever! Kevin Tweedy debuted the Mini he has built and new member Mark Bufton was performing well until his Astra's clutch started playing up.
Remember, no solo next month, Harry Flatters instead! Next solo first Sunday of September, let's make it a big one.
