WWRS CHRISTMAS STAGES
Monday, 29 December 2008
Well done to all from BMC who had a go at Pembrey yesterday, it was a great day with great weather and everyone seemed to be having a ball. First BMC crew home were Craig Jones and young Jamie Vaughan in Craig's usual Peugeot 205 GTi. Despite a failing head gasket the pair (with Jamie contesting his first rally) finished a creditable 19th overall.
Next up in 22nd overall wwas Will Arrowsmith with Matthew Farr who, I suspect, spent a lot of time looking out of the side windows!
Mike 'handbrake' Jones and Robin Moses were having fun but were mystified by Craig's outstanding pace but pushed on to a great 32nd overall. Just remember guys, youth might have something to do with it!!
Sadly, two BMC crews retired from the event, Phil Jones and Ian Jury let everyone know about their problems with smoke signals from the other side of the venue as the engine bay of their Pug went up in flames. Back to the drawing board again then!! Mark Hatton and Wayne Palmer were running just 1 second behind Mike when the strut top of their Renault Clio collapsed. It was however a good shakedown for the new car and Wayne was probably glad to stop as his stomach was not coping with co-driving.
More pics will be posted on a separate page as this one would only allow me to put 2 up.
