New - Bedale, North Yorkshire - Honda Exige Race/Rally

Hi from 'Team Old Fart Racing' - or is the posh version spelt with a 'ph'? Anyway... When I was young I was faster than a fast thing but now, when I can finally afford a car, I'm old n slow! Hey ho - makes as much sense as badly receeding hair and huge tufts of the stuff growing out of your ears - just WHY does that happen? Life having a giraffe... The Elise/Exige rally thing I have is road legal, so I thought it was about time I got out and about a bit more - before the old age sets in too much and the fastest I can go depends on the speed of my carers. So, living near sunny Bedale, I'm kind of spoilt for good raods round here. Happy days {drive} Hope to see you soon at a meet. Cheers, Darryl.

Another pic - from a rally at Anglesey circuit, last year. I had a 100% novice co-driver, ex RAF and scuba-dive instructor. Calm under pressure, knows a process, I thought. First time he had been in the car properly is when I launched it off the line on stage 1, and my first pacenote through the intercom was, "****ing Hell!!!". Two corners later - two(!) - I heard, "I'm lost...." :james101 Poor lad, couldn't keep up. He did a grand job by the end of the day, though. Huge thumbs up to him for volunteering
