It was another great day marshalling on this well subscribed event. 60 great cars started but there was a high rate of retirements, mainly of the classic cars. From speaking to others at the end meal, most had a good time. We had a blast. We were on the same tests as last year, Bridge & Quarry.
I got some photos at Bridge but the light was so bright I couldn't see the video camera screen to see what I was shooting so I stuck to stills.
There were a few cars that didn't make the afternoon sections which was a shame. Most of the Targa cars seemed to be there so it was the classics that had a high retirement rate.
From there it was back to Penrith to the truck stop where a welcome hearty meal awaited. Well fed we chatted to folks we only see once a year before heading for home.
We found the A66 was closed so we took an alternate route and rejoined the A66 further on. That was no good as we soon ended up in a queue that wasn't going anywhere fast. We turned round and found a back road to Brough where we managed to pick up the A66 again. It was plain sailing from there and we eventually arrived home just before 8pm. A long but very enjoyable day.
