Congratulations to the victorious KLDMC team. Thanks to all concerned, especially Hylton Gott, the SCCoN team, all the marshals and to Dave, June, Ian & Paul Pollard and their team for organising the event.

Many thanks to everyone who turned out to help on the rally. It was a shame that two crews couldn’t make it due to work commitments which cut the entry down to four. However, I think you all enjoyed yourselves and really achieved something by solving the navigation and competing on a proper rally; you all did very well. Thanks also to the many marshals who came out to man the controls, I couldn’t have done it without you. I hope you all enjoyed the lovely food provided by our genial hosts, The Runcton Holme Social Club, who always treat KLDMC very well! I hope everyone will come out again either to compete or marshal and get the clubnights full again. Thanks to Mark for course car duties in his new Skoda VRS and to June and Dave for doing the start and course closer. Finally I hope all the competitors appreciated that I had the ‘Fincham yellow’ pot holes repaired for the rally !! Paul H.

It’s a sign of the times that we only had eight entries for what turned out to be the first round of the “On the Road Championship” but the turnout from club members in general cannot be faulted.
I am sure you can appreciate that I did not have control over the weather though I was most impressed with the way in which all of the crews and marshals coped. In view of the conditions the “Time Limit” was extended to 45 minutes from TC.8 onwards.
Many thanks and well done to everyone who tuned out and commiserations to Carol & Bob who got as far as King’s Lynn before breaking down. A great shame as we don’t often get a chance to play in the snow and get it recorded on film. Thanks are also due to Andy & Laura who jeopardized their rally to assist Terry.

Congratulations to Alan Shrimpton and David Bell for an excellent win round the North Norfolk lanes with a few whites thrown in to make life more interesting.
Some thought one of the whites was a bit rough but it was cautioned and this being Derek and my first event for the club done at short notice there were bound to be a few teething problems ,but generally I hope it was enjoyed.
