This is another test type event being run under a Targa permit. It is on the 11th of July again in the beautiful North East, entry fee is £95 which includes lunch and meal at the finish for both crew members.

The start and finish venue is a good one that I know quite well it is a local Micro Brewery, about 5 or 6 mins from my house.

This is a link to the event website which has links for the regs and the online entry system


I've just put an entry in today, doing it in the TR7

Have to say we had a great day yesterday doing this event, all but one of the tests were good. Luckily the one bad one was only used once, I understand why they used it as the organisers lost 2 or 3 test venues in the last couple of weeks so had a bit of a panic trying to find some more.

The TR ran well all day, Sam in the left hand seat kept me right on all the tests, fair enough she didn't have to do much navigating on the road sections as once I knew where the test venues were I knew the routes to get there.

We finished 14th overall and 3rd in the class, happy with that.

I'd highly recommend people to come and try this event next time

I'll do a full report to send in to Dale for inclusion in club mag
