8 May – Sefton Autocross

Another crappy day sliding around in the mud. Somebody said the word “Barbeque” and of course if buckets down. Very cold (not too windy though thank goodness) and very wet, and 17 drivers took turns at seeing how much mud and cowpats they could spread over the bottom (and top for that matter) of their cars. Pete Abernethy made good use of those tractor tyres like Andrew Sim’s got (they verge on illegal,.. or they should do!.. that’s what happens when simple things give people advantages isn’t it?) and won the event overall, in a fine display of car control in the slippery conditions.
