Rally - JCR tonight
The shakedown passed off (almost) with out incident this morning just outside Kelso. A certain white Honda Civic went hedgetrimming, but we'll save the driver's blushes. Suffice to say, it's mainly cosmetic but it will need a windscreen before tonight.
Had a chat with Damien Cole. He had the Focus nearly flat out in a couple of places this morning but a guy with his experience gets dialled in pretty quickly. He' running Epynt settings for this event and he went 2 seconds quicker on his second run than he did on his first and 3 seconds quicker on is third.
When I asked how fast the Focus was geared for he said the data showed that the fastest he achieved on the Manx was 119.4 mph, and when I asked if there was anything left, young Elliot Edmondson (co-driver) piped up: "That was fast enough!"
Just wait till he hits the Berwickshire roads!
And here's a name to conjure with. One to strike fear into the hearts of the timid and inspire the bold, the brave and the foolhardy. Bring it on.
