Rally - Mike's holed piston
Mike Faulkner turned up for the pre-Border Counties test session earlier this afternoon only to find it had been cancelled. Turns out that the Lancer had holed a piston at last weekend's private test. Right in the middle of the crown, and a crack had started from there. It looks as though Mike just managed to switch it off before the crack reached the gudgeon pin. So it was a relatively simple job to fit four new competition pistons. The job was only finished last night so a road run had to do in place of a proper test run.
