After a couple of years away from Kemble it was time to return to Bath MC’s targa at the small but perfectly formed venue. Although the venue is small, it has a real mix smooth tarmac, old school WWII concrete and gravel.
For this event I was out with Lizzie Pope, who has navved for me many times. This meant I would be ‘single’ driving, which is did mean for a more relaxed day’s rallying but it did reduce the advantage you get from seeing the route from the nav’s seat.
The day went well and the car performed well, the tests were enjoyable with a real mix of tight and twisty sections and some real fast sections. The tests involved lapping which during the running of the tests meant we caught some cars mid test. This added a new fun dimension to the driving.
By the end of the day we finished up 5th overall in the Nat B event, and 9th overall in the combined event. Checking through the results, we finished up 2nd overall of the single drivers, which was pleasing.
