As soon as one finishes another begins!
Having just finished cataloguing over 6000 images from the Flying Scotsman its time to re-pack the bags and head off for another event.
This weekend it's back 'up North' only this time just to Yorkshire, for the next round of the Autosessive HRCR Clubmans Rally Championship, the Ilkley Jubilee on Sunday. This year the rally is based just outside Harrogate, at the Milestones, it
Having now packed, and caught my breath I now have time to add some photos of the top 3 finishers from the FS, claimed to be 'The Longest Timed Rally for Vintageants'.

2nd O/A went to previous winners Paul Carter and John Bayliss, in his pretty 1936 Bentley Derby 4 1/4, seen below very early on the last day of the event.

and third went to David Thompson and ex FS route desginer Alan Smith in the great looking Talbot 105 Alpine, also a 1936 year model.

Lastly a couple of shots of the winning crew, shortly after Lunch on the first day, and a 'tight' line that certainly made my colleague Mike Sargent 'concentrate'. Left is his shot, mine is the upright shot.

And lastly a shot of the fourth placed crew, who were third on day 2, Nick Jarvis & Ryan Pickering in the lovely Jaguar SS 100. Taken on the Allendale section after Lunch in Stanhope.
