Two things before the 2013 Tunncks Mull Rally gets underway at 7 pm tonight. Will Fred fit in Allan's car and will Ted give Mark a 'doin' before the first service halt?
'Fred' MacLean is co-driving for Allan MacKay in the Ford Anglia WRC (Well Run Car!) this weekend, but hasn't yet sat in the car. That's because the passenger seat was built for a short anorexic ballerina and Fred, well - isn't. If he gets into it, at least he won't need seat belts!
Further back, Mark Runciman will debut his newly built, awfy smart Vauxhall Nova with his Dad Ted alongside. This will be Ted's first run-out for some years. In fact he did the first ever Mull Rally way back in 1969, Neil Fraser was driving his Hillman Imp and they finished 24th overall that year. Later on Ted became better known for co-driving Tony Blane in the Datsun.
It just shows you though, once bitten by Mull, forever smitten.
