Competed on the Hexham Historic Rally on Saturday night 140 miles around Northumbria and County Durham

The rebuilt engine performed faultlessly
managed to finish 5th after holding 2nd at the halfway halt
had a poorly navigator and had to keep stopping on the competitive sections

Last weekend saw the Rapier out on a very tough event in Wales
The 116 Targa tracks
We didn’t get away unscathed this time
Marred by a wrong tyre choice we slid off causing some damage to the n/s/front wing

Oof, but a flesh wound. Hopefully you and you co suffered less and didn't get any battle scars like the car.
