Couldn't resist this one! And no, it's not a group of Christmas elves practising for next years Santa's Grotto in Halfords, it's actually Marshals from Highland Car Club manning the 'Finish' line at the end of the first stage on last weekend's Snowman Rally.
This must be one of the most thankless tasks on any rally. There is no inter-action with the crews, just keeping an eye on the timing equipment and if it does go wrong, then resorting to a pre-arranged signalling manoeuvre with the Marshals further down the road on the 'Stop' line.
And yes, it is as cold as it looks. Or maybe not - it's actually colder than that!
