Rally - Calm before Storm

The editorial Transit at rest just after the 'wheel wash' at a certain location somewhere near Duns in the Scottish Borders.

The recce for Jim Clark Rally competitors starts today, but come rally weekend, this particular location will look far different. For one thing, it will be lined with the serried ranks of cheering and yee-haaaing spectators all waiting to see how this pretty looking, but sneakily malevolent, stretch of water will be treated by those going about the seriously competitive business of rallying.

Underneath that clear and shimmering surface lurks a slimily slippery slab of concrete just waiting and ready to grab the unwary.
