Short Shift Rally 5th March 2014
Thank you to all who turned out to marshal or compete on my 12 car Clubnight Rally last week.
I apologise for being slow with this document and the results; the remainder of my week and weekend were occupied with too much rallying!
We started with eight entries but this became seven before a wheel was turned as Alan Shrimpton had car troubles following a SCCoN 12 car on the previous Friday. Once underway we lost a second crew as Tony & Chloe Hewitt went OTL and decided to make their way home. This was Chloe’s first attempt at plotting the route so it was bound to make things difficult; I hope that she will not be put off but have some more attempts.
Most crews seemed to enjoy the route though I was surprised at how difficult most found the instructions to be. Sorry.
My band of helpers and marshals for the rally were as follows:
Competitors Sign-On & MTC.1 Paul Davison, Colin & Elaine Shinkins
Course Opener & Handout checking Bob Baker
Secretarial Assistant Nikki Cammack
Course Closer & TC.2 Dick Archer & Tim Ball
TC.3 & TC.10 Simon Leonard
TC.4 & TC.11 Carol & Bob Offer
TC.5 Paul Pollard
TC.6 Andy Congreve
TC.7 . Elaine & Colin Shinkins
TC.8 Nigel Mann
TC.9 John Holman
TC.12 Bob Baker
Thanks to everyone for making last night’ club night a success, despite the contact we had with a Deer between TC7 & 8 and the offside rear spring on the Golf letting go whilst we sat at the final control made us jump like hell ..I forgot to do the marshal’s draw so got Elaine to do it today the winner is Paul Pollard
Thanks also to Greg for sponsoring the food and it was nice to see him and Judy at the finish.
The landlady of the Coach & Horses said we are welcome back any time which is nice when start venues with food are not easy to come by these days.
Well done to Ed Haylock and Dave Smalley winning the Experts and Paul and Mathew Smalley winning the novices.
Great effort by the other 2 novice crews finishing well on a challenging route.
Apart from the errors in the instructions which are inexcusable we remain convinced that this is the type of rally we are used to organising , however it is clear that some crews,for good reason, do not like “whites” ,and some found the instructions too difficult (not helped by the errors).
So if the committee allow us to run an event next year ,there will be NO whites and the instructions will be simpler.We do listen and Learn!
In the confusion we did not do a marshal’s raffle but my wife has drawn a control out of the hat and the winner of £15 is TC6 Simon Leonard. Thanks to all the marshals for making it all work on the night.
Thanks to you all for an excellent entry of 9 crews this year, and Steve Tilburn of Hylton Gott for providing a welcome supper and staff at The Railway Inn at the finish.
Regards, Peter and Derek
Congratulations to Brian on winning the National Co-drivers Rally Championship at the recent Cheviot Keith Knox Rally, held in testing conditions in the Otterburn ranges.
Sitting in the hot seat alongside Simon Mauger in the Major Motorsport Escort Mk 2, Brian helped to take the crew to 2nd = overall on this event to win the National B12 class, the Millington RWD National championship and to clinch the overall MSA National Co-drivers crown for himself, edging out Patrick Walsh by just one point.
