|Trudy and I started the
championship with a " bang " on the practice day. I seem to remember we
were wondering how to tell our sponsor - Kidderminster Motors that we needed a new body
shell so soon! However with a little help from Ford they re shelled the
Fiesta and we were ready for the first event in time. The car remained in one piece
for the rest of the Championship.
We failed to finish the Centurian Rally after sliding into
a deep ditch, and spent a few hours waiting to be rescued in Kielder forest but we were in
the company of another non Fiesta crew who had found the same ditch. I don't think
we had mobile phones then did we ?
We had a thoroughly enjoyable
time both taking part in the rallies and the races and I thank Ali for remembering that 25
years has passed by and look forward to seeing you all again at the reunion.
