Hello Michael - Sorry you weren’t able to join us today at the Mechanics Trial. I was running the start at Section 2, Alf’s Delight, and managed to take a few photos when the opportunity arose. So, here are four shots from a beautiful sunny Spring morning in Gloucestershire – so sunny that the glare has compromised the quality somewhat, but feel free to use them as you see fit. In order of appearance:
Start of the section, a glorious climb up through woodland onto Stinchcombe Hill on the edge of the Cotswold escarpment.
SDMC member Terry Coventry’s immaculately restored Class 8 Marlin, which he campaigned very successfully a few years ago, with the equally immaculate Troll of Nigel Moss following.
The superb Trojans of Steve & Phil Potter and John Whilton, last seen with frozen windscreens at the Haynes Museum on the Exeter; quite a contrast in conditions!
The HRG of SDMC member Stuart Roach, with Dave Wall passengering. The following vehicle is the Peter Treliving Austin 7, being driven today by Emma Wall.
