Rockingham Stages rally this weekend 5th/6th Dec so if anyone is at a loose end pop along as it's a great event click here for further info. Starts midday on Saturday and runs into late afternoon then 9am until around 4pm on Sunday. Last two stages on Saturday are in the dark and cars start at 30 second intervals so plenty of action taking place around the circuit as it’s a tarmac event. I’ll be servicing car 49 (Astra mk2) so pop and say hello as we don’t bite. Seeded entry list is here for those interested in the machinery taking part.

Not the best weekend. After getting my head down at 01:40 on Sunday morning and up at 06:40 we got the brakes fitted but the cable gear shifter decided to continue to play up. We had issues on Sat with it but on Sunday it got the best of us and we could only get 1st, 3rd, 5th and reverse as the wire winding inside the cable had bunched up meaning it was unable to pull through the sheathing to get 2nd and 4th. No spare cable so it was game over. After 3 stages we called it quits and missed the last 3 stages. The car was fighting us all weekend.
