Rally - Beware the Bull
An interested bystander during yesterday's Jim Clark Rally recce was this chap, glowering at the cars as they slowly passed by his domain. He fairly scowled at the shiny cars with co-drivers feverishly writing down the calls made by their drivers.
But he did make a point. If any would-be spectator fancies a short-cut across the fields to a favoured viewing point, then he or she should look before they leap. So don't wear any red scarves or anoraks, and certainly no fluorescents or high heels, in case you upset the locals!
So be extra careful this weekend. Act sensibly and with consideration to others, and have regard for the locals, it's not only rally cars that go bump in the lanes!
