The morning run was uneventful apart from old Numbum starting to slip out of top gear on the overrun occasionally which was a tad annoying but not life threatening. One or two dark clouds appeared but apart from a couple of drops, no rain thankfully.
The lunch stop at Bainbridge was much better in the fine weather and we had a good time wandering around and talking cars. Much better than sitting in the car under a brolly. Our quiz sheet was returned, mostly blank as usual.
Thankfully we managed to get away from the Tan Hill checkpoint ahead of the slowest car and we had a good run for the rest of the afternoon. As we neared the end of the day, the clutch linkage repair that I'd done after the Coast to Coast turned out to be not the best repair, but luckily there was enough clutch to get home.
During the course of the day we met some readers of this blog. Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad you enjoy reading about what we do. Spread the word. The more readers the merrier. Comments are always welcome, just click the 'add a comment' link at the bottom of the post and type away.
Thanks as always to George Jolley and all the volunteer marshalls who give up their Sunday so we can enjoy ourselves.
