Struggled like others to locate start of bridleway to cross river so lost some time, timber deck on Wharfe bridge was scary with ice and thin tyres. Helped to read description before I got to the road unlike some.

    Well done Tim, it sounds like you had similar time delays with the mystery machinery to ourselves.

    Had sleepless night last night searching for the odd minute here and there which would have enabled young Max to get back just two minutes sooner for a class win even if we’d have had 60 deducted points instead of 80!

    Always safer to avoid the pesky penalties in that kind of scale, my over ambition was the root cause!

    Enjoy Chistmas & New Year everyone & Thanks again to STEVE and the planners for all of there great work this year to make the events possible.
