Only 2 days to go until the Rally of the Midlands

Spookworks will be back in action in 2 days time at the Rally of the Midlands.  Based in Hinckley, Leicestershire the event has 24 stages with approx 120 stage miles connected by approx 80 road miles.  It's Round 2 of the RAF Rally Championship and as we are currently in 3rd place in the Championship after the D'Isis Rally we must get a good result to stop the others from pulling too far ahead.

The weather will be critical as the forecast is for rain.  We have four wheel drive so that will be a big advantage but the roads are fast, slippy and unforgiving. Tyre choice is going to be very important.  We have a choice of slicks, cut slicks or full wets so should be able to find something to work.  The car has had an oil change, spanner check and just needs some new pads which we will get once we meet up with Jonesy at Service.

We are car 53, so as the leaders start the event at 1730 we should be in stage at about 1756hrs give or take.  If you can't get to Hinckley to catch the action you could always listen to how we are going by tuning in to 107.9 Oak FM as they are covering the rally.
