    Planning to do Walters and Sweet Lamb/Hafren myself. Working Saturday, but might not be able to avoid the temptation to do Harwood Sunday too, if I can get over doing the 4 hour trip there and back for the day...

    I think I'd put my money on Osian Pryce for the win, if I were a betting man.

    Have fun and stay safe you guys that are following the rally. I will be missing it this year although the trade off is that I will be in Lanzarote for the final round of the Canary Islands championship so the weather at least should be a bit kinder to me!

    Guess most eyes will be on the Escort battle with Meeke and Solberg vs the Brit pack however I'm secretly hoping for a Chris Ingram win with the TR7 V8!

    Have a great time if you're out on the stages, it should be a great event. I'll hopefully have chance to watch a bit of the extensive online coverage on https://youtube.com/@SpecialStage?si=mEImG_lFE1dRnCPQ

    I also hope to see Chris Ingram have the win but I'm not sure how competitive the TR7 V8 will be. Fingers-crossed its reliable and he gets to the finish. Ditto with the Stratos of Perez and the few 911s, especially of Chris Harris.

    I see a cold snap is forecast for the north so that could make it a proper traditional RAC... the weather always used to turn just in time for it !

    I was driving through Pant near Oswestry today, saw an Opel Kadett being trailered on its way south - mustíve been either no. 112 or 120 but I didnít catch which number.

    Then the first customer I was at today we got talking about the RAC somehow. I mentioned the Kadett I saw and she said her sons were off to Sweet Lamb with some mates and her husband was going up to Kielder at the weekend.

    Making me jealous but getting Thursday or Friday off work just wouldnít work for me right now will have my eyes glued to the Special Stage coverage over the weekend, apparently itíll have a retro Rally Report feel

    The size of the crowd at the Ceremonial start show that rallying can still be a draw even in these strange times for the car so hopefully there is life in the old dog yet!

    Missing not being there already but looking forwarding to seeing the battle come to life online.
