Rally - UK Rally Scene

There's more good stuff in the latest issue of the 'UK Rally Scene' magazine which is out now. It just keeps getting better, eh? There's Part 1 of an article from Mark Grierson. You can tell he's a school teacher because there is a second part to come in the next issue. Typical, have you ever met a teacher who will mark an exam paper in ten words when fifty words will dent the kid's confidence even further?

However, in this case, and in all fairness to Mark, there is quite a tale to tell. If there are any amateur rally drivers out there who think they've done it all, this account of four club crews tackling the national part of Rally Finland provides an eye opening and enjoyable romp across the northern continent of Europe.

On a more serious note, and with the recent joint BRC/SRC Galloway Hills Rally fresh in our minds, there is an insightful column from Jamie Edwards about the current state of the British Rally Championship. Sadly it is not alone, Scottish rallying is also suffering reduced entry numbers and an ongoing worry about non-viable events. We all know what the problems are, we just don't know how to fix them.

Elsewhere in the mag there is the usual mix of rally reports, features and foties - and all for the miserly sum of a fiver. Get it from Ebay (or look out for Bob at the rallies)
