Last weekend I participated (as crew) for Team Paradox
in the SCCA "100 Acre Wood" rally. This was my first
involvement in the SERIOUS rally world, having only done
TSD rallies before. MAN, this is intense!
Team Paradox champions a '68 MGB-GT if full historic
rally trim. The car is stunning and REALLY well sorted.
http://www.rhybudd.com/ At the services we basically
checked brake pads and shoes, retorqued damper bolts,
inspected tires, cleaned windows and refueled. Nothing
broke, nothing failed. And we're talking about 90+ mph
on gravel forest roads with tail-wagging pendulum turns at
full throttle. Any MG fan would have been VERY proud!
But here is the bottom line, we kicked butt! This was a
national event with around 60 entrants, including teams from
Ireland, and we took third place (overall) in "Group 2" and
FIRST place in "Group 2 Historic"! Great fun!
Thought you'd want to know. :o)
