Although wet ! It sounds like a fun time was had by all

"Wallace and Gromit being the Lead car" Not so sure about that ... Bad planning ... Jenny would have had everyone's tyres warmed up within the first mile affraid Great fun though !!!

I was thinking of you all when i heard the rain coming down ... Well done for keeping the spirit alive.

As most of you know we wimped out on the camping! Cool

A good call I think as it rained all weekend! The ground was saturated from the minute we got there. Luke spun the car wheels parking it up and covered the car in mud. Ah well mud is the same colour as rust...

The treasure hunt was hard again and as Slim said we missed the first few clues so just decided to run around and forget the "treasure".

Went home for tea. Large pizzas all round and back the next morning for briefing and a cup of tea, thanks David and Jenny.

The main run used more main roads than usual in the morning, but after lunch in Skipton it was back to normal on the single track "Mini" roads. Very Happy

Sorry we weren't more sociable by missing the camping but I never was a fan....
