Rally - Test on the ranges

Solway Car Club had arranged an excellent day's testing on military ranges ahead of the Jim Clark and Reivers Rallies. Just a pity more folk didn't take advantage. It was an ideal venue and the weather was ideal too. Indeed, very similar weather to what Berwickshire will get next weekend!*!

John MacCrone was there with the DS3 and Alex Laffey with his Fiesta S2000 and both sounded minted echoing across the ranges. Jock Armstrong was trying out a flat shift on the  Subaru for the first time and Jim Sharp was trying the Lancer out after its Manx woes. Fraser Wilson was trying too, and had a dinged wheel to show for it. Stuart Glendinning was giving his RWD Puma its first taste of tarmac ahead of the JCR so this test was ideal for him.

Arron Newby used the test to try out a brand new engine. Same spec but new and was pleased with it. There will be a full report on the website of all who were there - soon.
