The Malton Forest Rally
The Malton Rally is always a challenge, for one thing it seems to change in someway every year, in the years I have been doing this rally its gone from the windy, o so cold n wet, Wombelton air field, to a Rally Sprint and now in more recent times a forest event.
Having now done the rally and sat at home, I can honestly say this years rally was a real treat. The best thing, I didnít know any of the stages. I didnít have a clue where I was going; just as well then I had Kev Wilson on the maps/notes.
After the good run on the Trackrod, hopes of a good run were high, the day was dry but oh my god was it slippy, as I was braking into the corners the back end seemed to be braking away and I was even more sideways than normal!!!! This of course is good for the spectators but in the car I felt I must be loosing bags of time, we were going as hard as I dare and yet felt I was going like a granny compared to the pace we set on the Trackrod. As we went into service we had a few worryís, one of them been whether I had actually made a jump start, both Kev and myself both swore as I had shot of the line just a fraction early, just one of those things that can really make a mess of your day. Luckily there was no mention of it. A change of tyres, on to some a little narrower and a more open pattern, a top up of fuel and away we go back into the fray.
With more confidence in the handling of the car, now the speed was there, the car felt brill once again, we now felt more at home. With 20 cars in our class, it is I feel one of the hottest classes, by the end of the day we ended 6th in class and 27tho/a.
Many other drivers can recall all the stages in intimate detail after the rally, I remember some and each rally has its very own moments, this year there were 3, donít bother asking what stage, they may have all been on the same, first was a forest crossing that we hit probably doing 80+and did we take off, we seemed to travel light for a long long time, brill, second was a long right hander, full opposit lock and flat in third gear, just a fantastic corner, last and not least was a 90left that was marked with a tree with the trunk sticking out to stop you cutting the corner, we were already drifting as we were going into the corner ,no one would have wanted to put there hand between the tree and my front wing, gladly we got it right, if not, it would have torn the wing off for sure!!
As I sit at home typing this and many a day after a rally, when its all gone right, I just smile to myself at what we get up to and what a mad sport we have. The escort is just so much fun to drive, is there a better days fun to be had!
As ever thanks to all that help me, Oatlands Tyres, the guys at Motoscope who really have sorted the handling of the car this year, Big Dave and Lewis in service this time, Kev for bein' just mint on the notes and all those folk who give us a wave as we shoot past, and of course Malton for a mint event
