I started walking the hill on my first visit and i got about half way down and thought "!*!& this - I'm going to have to walk back up here" and went back to the paddock to enjoy a coffee!

I am indeed in the Skoda.....I will be aiming for F T D - obviously I won't get anywhere close but if you don't aim high you never get anywhere

Another brilliant day at Scammonden. 8 timed runs, very slick organisation. Thanks to Rod and his team and special thanks to the marshals it can't have been much fun in the rain before lunch.

I second that......fantastic.....complete opposite of lots of events.....there was barely time to get out of the car and stretch before you had to go for the next run! Very well run and all done with a light hearted laid back feel. The best thing was that with so many runs it was possible to experiment without worrying about messing up one of only 2 timed runs....I tried corners in 1st, I tried them in 2nd, I tried all sorts of things.....I didn't go any quicker after the 3rd timed run but I answered a lot of questions to myself

Great event and super club; shame they didn't get more entries as the venue needs support.

A superb day, friendly, helpful, and willing team of guys and gals that organise and run the whole thing!

A credit to the sport.

I'll be back next year, hopefully some more competitors will see the attraction of a slick run event and attend too.

Thanks to all.

Many thanks for all the kind comments,as a club we have seen over the past 2 events a growth in entries..34 last year and 31 this year..albeit only 29 runners,is it the fact we run on Saturday or not,or that the fact we have been included in several different championships...as well as the ANWCC & SD.34 we were lucky enough to be included in the LIVERPOOL sprint & Hill climb championship,the Longton Northern speed championship and for this year the Cross border Championship..this alone generated 9 competitors.
A lot of different cars this year.
My thanks go to all..but especially the Marshals..changeable weather conditions made it a bit miserable,but thanks to father and son team Barry & Peter Wilkinson,they did an excellent job..especially after I dropped him in it big style .
As usual excellent service from David Clay,Roger & Chris on the timing and Richard Ashton with the rescue unit.
A good result for Mick Tomlinson in the AFE "buggy" always the "bridesmaid" when it came to BTDBTDBTD..see you all again next year.
Thanks
Rod
