REPORT FROM IAN TAYLOR

A good day in the silly seat of the Evo 9 of Oli Hopkins with it’s new upgrades getting more confidence in the car as the day went on. Big thanks as always to Reg, Dan and Paddy for servicing duties, just the usual fuel and tyre check was all that was needed again to keep the car in top form. Thanks to Mandy and Samantha for the Taylor’s Bakery goodies keeping us fed.
Thanks to all at PTMC for a great rally again and all the marshals, timekeepers, recovery crews etc for your efforts and a speedy recovery to Sean Crowley and Emma Jones after they’re massive off, glad to hear your both on the mend.
Pleased to finish 11th overall and 3rd in class, another pot for the mantle piece 😀🏆👍
Finally, a big well done to Lee Taylor for finishing his first Epynt a very creditable 24th overall and 7th in class 👏
