The day started off with a cold wind and passing showers, a thunderstorm passed near by but didn’t effect the days racing.
I was on marshal position one and it was a bit more sheltered from the wind which made it more bearable and a lot warmer.
First was the Tiki Tour led by Rowdy to give the competitors a look at the road followed by the practice runs in two groups to split the cars before three timed runs.
My corner proved to be quite exciting, it was fairly tight and the camber changed on the exit causing some of the cars to cross up and drift towards the bank, better than going the other way where there is quite a drop.
Fortunately there were no accidents even though some of these cars were very fast nad the road being slippery didn’t help, made good viewing though.
There were some real cool cars, a neat little MG Midget, Datsun 240K Coupe, Austin A40 Farina, early model Alfa Romeo Sedan, Datsun 120Y Coupe, older Toyota Celica powered by a small block Chevy V8 and natty little Terepin open wheeler among the other rally and hill climb cars.
The racing was kept moving right through the day thanks to Rowdy and his team of organisers.
