GS/A Rally at Tilford Rural Life Centre

Anyone else going to this weekend's rally near Farnham, which is a nice place for a rally? I hope to be there on Sunday.

Great rally as always and good to meet electrokid and two other owners (I'm hopeless with names) including the owner of WTF. So 4 BXs which seemed to equal the number of GSs, although there were rather more GSAs.

Attendance seemed to be down, which is a shame as it's a lovely site and a very friendly rally. Well done to John, Chris and any other of the organizers.

On the negative side what is it about lane discipline on the M25? Four lanes, 1 and 2 pretty empty, lane 3 full of dawdlers and lane 4 full of Mr Angry in a BX GTi as a result! Surely traffic would flow much better with better lane discipline or is it just that drivers think if they get into lane 1 (or 2 even) they'll never get out - well I find by reading the road, anticipating and using indicators it's never a problem.

It's a nice site, that. Probably should have bombed it up there but had a lazy day in with the kids instead :)

I was racing on Frensham Great Pond, I'm afraid. All day too and completely knackered at the end of it all. Needed quite a bit of 'rehydration' at the end of it all too. Good venue for a rally though. Don't forget the Hog's Back brewery in Tongham produces some fine ales..
