so as usual the weather over at pickering was fantastic. unlike back in doncaster where it rained all day! managed to avoid the pub after this rally and headed to filey for the presentations and a look around the service area.

good thing is, priceless or not. they get used properly and none of that just polish it and trailer it to a show on out of date cn36s. although i did feel for the fella with the historic spec mk1 lotus cortina with its arse and rear qtr squashed. didn't get a pic as he was pissed off enough.

With these people, it’s a money no object sport. The guy who lived next door but two to me raced mk1 lotuses, I asked him about worrying about crashing them ? The answer there’s another three in the garden !! What’s the problem 🤑🤑🤑🤑

that escort col, is the fella dave watkins? just looked on the entry list, tells ya the names and where theyre from. not saying on here where he's from but not far from you. and i did spend a few hours with him at the first historic rally i went to at pickering about 10/12 yrs ago. at that time he owned FEV5H which if i remember was hanu mikolas rally car from the 70s.

That’s him, really nice bloke

yeah a spot on fella, didn't realise at the time it was his car or i'd have had a chat with him. he actually uses all his cars properly. the chevette has some history too. talking to the owner of that. its running an all steel 3.0 omega v6 engine and Penti Arricala used to live next door to him, and the plates if not the shell were from Penti and there are photos of Penti using the car with that reg on. think he was the best chevette driver ever!
