We turned up to the start at Roots Farm Shop and were surprised to see an empty space where the gazebo normally sits. It was so wet and windy that the staff at Roots cleared some space for us in one of the barns. Thanks to Roots.
We signed on and collected out route book and chatted for a while before the space filled up with other arrivals.
There were quite a few no shows which was understandable as the weather was bad and the forecast wans't any better for the rest of the day.
We set off in rain and it didn't let up at all. We were thankful to be warm & dry in TYO our MG3 . Many soft top owners got wet even with the tops up. The rain was driving in through every nook and cranny.
It was a super route and the scenery was lovely but we couldn't see it. The lunch stop in Kettlewell was a washout.
To add interest to the route there were questions to be answered and we got enough to win the trophy. There weren't many other competed entries and I'm not surprised given the weather. The trophy is ours to keep (clean) for a year.
It was a strange day with non of the usual chatter round the cars and the only video is from the car. No photos either as it was too wet for me to get my camera out.
