We did the usual signing on duties and had a bit of a chinwag while taking some video shots of the start. The plan was to try to get ahead of the pack for more photos & videos.
The plan didn't work too well. We hadn't prepared the route and had some difficulty translating the tulip route book to our Ordnance Survey map. It soon became apparent that to get ahead we would have to abandon any hope of video from the morning part of the run and head for somewhere in the afternoon.
We picked Hamsterley Forest Drive and arrived there in plenty of time to find a spot and have a bite to eat before the first cars arrived.
I set the other camcorder on the wall and covered it with my cap and let it run. When I picked it up as we were leaving I noticed that it wasn't pointing where I'd pointed it. Tne wind must have turned it round. Thankfully I still got most of the cars in video and stills while we were there.
