The Dalby trails are impossible. We had a look at the sections near Bickley gate (after 40 minutes of grit salt shovelling it took to get up the bank). You cat even tell where the trail goes beyond the marker post).
The conditions must be getting worse too as our SAAB has just gone 11th fastest through the second Langdale stage. The rally is now running about 3 hours behind schedule. The poor sods still have Hamsterly and Kielder to tackle tonight.

Still miles from home and the snow is really coming down.

Well, after dropping the good Dr off, I continued North only to be thwarted on the final section from the A697 tom "home" Fortunately I know people in Longframlington so I was able to get liquid refreshment and a bed there, continuing home this morning, got to put the key in my front door finally at 12.30.
Cracking wee road trip, took me back to when rallying was competitive and non processional. Shame so many couldnt get, we`ll just have to tell you ALL about it
We were awesome, we rocked and so did the T5, mais le Renault 5 turbo , la plus belle voiture du weekend!

Touting for work.....feel free! You cant see it when it has a couple of inches of snow on it, then as it melts it clean it off.
