A Very Successful Doonhamer
Visit the NESCRO website for loads of great images of this year’s Doonhamer, by Brian Huddleston.

Here’s an e.mail from one competitor:
We’ve just got back to West Yorks after the Doonhamer complete with several kilos of Scottish mud! We got some funny looks on the M6.
Please pass on our thanks to all concerned with the event. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute and this time all the drama was of the fun kind. It’s hard to pick out any one aspect we liked the most – the venue, the navigation, the tests and above all the good humour of fellow entrants and marshals all contributed to a fantastic event.
Once again, many thanks to you and all the team.

I don’t know if anyone else did, but we had an in-car camera running on most of the tests on Sunday and I thought you might be interested to see how they appeared to the crews on the day.
I was expecting the event to involve mainly sealed surfaces so our choice of tyres and suspension on the day was very poor (particularly for Fingland Fell, Collin and parts of Rammerscales!), but overall it was very well organised and highly enjoyable.
Once again, thank you very much for a great event.
Please view my two Youtube videos of the day featuring most of the tests. Unfortunately on one or two we either forgot to start the camera filming or had very little time on arrival at the start even to find the test directions, but most are there.

Roland, thanks for a great day. Cracking variety of tests and the work put in by all Marshalls is very much appreciated. We managed to chop 8 seconds off the second run of Fingland Fell. The finish marshall even commented about the impressive time that John achieved.
