New format and start for the Summer Trial
This year HERO have moved the Summer Trial to South Wales, and with a new format. Starting Friday afternoon, and finishing Sunday afternoon, it is a compact event, with a route using some classic rallying roads.
The weather is looking good, but it is Wales we're going to, so the umbrellas are packed!
2012 winners Mike & Simon Baker. I'm not sure we'll get any shots like the one above this year, but who knows, maybe Clerk of the Course Peter Nedin has found some wet stuff for the competitors. Full event preview here.
The entry is certainly a cracking one, lots of 'new' cars, and some interesting new driver/navigator combinations as well. Hope the 'family' entries are still talking to their daughters at the finish. Talking of family entries, in the Tour category Rob Short has Harry with him this year, and in an Austin Healey 3000.
Rob and Freddy Short in an E type. Freddy the youngest navigator on the event!
Lastly I found this 'action' shot, taken in 2012 by my other 'navigator/photographer' Mick Briggs, just to prove we do take the photos!
Tony & Mike in action!
