Quite right, there is some hard standing at the front but this is populated by tables and chairs! The other side is a tennis court so...

If all else fails, bring some pieces of wood to support the jack and axle stands like last year for the technical demonstrations:

I'm pretty much sorted now. Everything is in the boot ready apart from a few things to sort in the morning.

Finishing work at 1 tomorrow and driving straight up.

Not managed to find any wood though. Got everything though in case some suitable ground is discovered.

See some of you tomorrow and the rest of you at the weekend.

Well let's hope it doesn't follow the tradition of all the other rallies and being a washout. DSM, National... [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o<

We're basically all set and both CXs are ready! 8-) Dad's not decided what we'll be taking up (Prestige or GTi Turbo 2) but a friend is driving the other up on Saturday and staying the rest of the weekend too.

I'm certainly looking forward to it. :D
