Pulling into the drive and unlocking the gate, Dick Hall had turned up say that he had been and found the gate locked and had been looking for another gate. Dick was going to be helping Bill Hitchcock with Scrutineering and then be one of the Timekeepers. I Parked just inside the gate and put all my layers of clothing on as it was cold and raining. As I put up safety notices and altered the course a bit the sun came out so I was pealing of the layers. As it turned out the weather was very good then started to turn cold during the last Test. We had no incidents other than a few cones knocked which we stopped the event and replaced the cones on their spots.
The driving during the day was very good and competitive. The first Test was damp for the first group (3 groups of 12 cars), these were a bit disadvantaged as the venue dried out (not a lot can be done about that).
