Jim Clark Time Again
This weekend saw rallies of every decription taking place in the Borders, as is the norm on the Jim Clark.
As it happens, all three SOSCC crews had a very short day and indeed, all three cars were on the trailer pretty soon after the event had started.
David Bogie & Kevin Rae had hoped to put in a performance in the Metro but it decided it didn’y want to play and after just one stage it broke and that was that!. Oh well, at least its in one piece for Donegal in two weeks time.
Greg and Chris McKnight had an even shorter event. Greg reports: “We didn’t even make it to the start of stage one. We broke down on the road section with a broken clutch lever arm. We are very dissapointed, especially after the good results weve had lately. All that effort in changing the brakes, suspension and tyres, just to get a few miles of road section. Not to worry though. At least it’s nothing serious or expensive and I can look forward to the Scottish in a few weeks time”.
