Feverish activity on the farm this weekend as I fitted fire extinguishers, rally plates, number plates and numbers to the BGT and finally ensured we have all the kit we could want and hopefully nothing more than we need, for the Rally of the Tests. Big Mike plotted maps and cursed the new system this year and gave me a route to the start line nearly 400 miles away in Edinburgh.
The car is with Mechanic Andy for some last minute items; driving lamps, reversing lamps, potty plug (it’s a navigation aid honest) and tweaks to the brakes.
I’m heading off on Wednesday to the Dalmahoy hotel where we do our scrutineering and final briefings before the start of the first tests at Knockhill circuit on Thursday evening.
Three days and 850 miles later we hope to arrive in Stratford on Avon for the end of rally dinner.
Wish us luck and follow the progress on: http://www.classicrally.org.uk/rott2005/index.html
