jersey rally

Postby jerseypug » Mon Oct 16, 2017 1:05 am

i have just spent the weekend competing at my local event in the jersey rally, it was very slippery with mud, moss and chestnuts all over the roads, the messy bits were ok because you could see they were slippery but there were roads with good grip along with roads that looked good but no grip. we were seeded 36th and got up to 21st during the friday daylight hours but dropped back to 29th through the night as i wasn't feeling comfortable for some reason in the dark and hit a lot of banks and lost a lot of time. saturday was better but still slippery, there were lots of casualties and retirements, there was a lovely e30 m3 that had a few hits causing his retirement, martin walters was running really well in his e30 and had a big crash which took him out and there was a s2000 powered e30 that didn't look too good after hitting a granite barn which also retired. it was carnage, driving the stages you were constantly passing cars in banks and debris all over the road. one corner we came across a boot lid with spoiler in the middle of the road and were expecting to see a car on its roof but didn't come across the car for about a mile where he was in a field entrance.
it was a hard rally but so good. if it was easy it wouldn't be such an achievement to finish. shame its another year until the next one.
i am very pleased with the compact as it had quite a few hits and carried on without any problems. I'm going to need some new wheels, do some work on the dents and carry out some fibreglass repairs to both bumpers.
we were not taking our times too seriously and were over using the hand brake on the saturday especially where there were people cheering us on but we had a really good time and enjoyed every minuet of it smiling all the way.
we finished 22nd which I'm happy with especially as just making it to the end was an achievement. i would thoroughly recommend giving it a go.

This is the saturday morning St. Ouen stage which was one of the less slippery ones. i felt bad holding the mk 2 up after passing him but he was fine about it and could see the funny side with my Austin Powers manoeuvring

Nice write up, well done on finishing! Keen to try it myself one day, need to get to grips with new car and LHD first. Can't wait for closed road rallying to come to the mainland...

it is a m42 with m47 diesel crank and s50 m3 throttle bodies. Shrigley engineering in Manchester built the engine and I'm very pleased with how it goes. it needs an exhaust manifold to free up some more power but hopefully my soon to be new best friend is going to sort me out with one ;)

Man I feel bad for these guys, but crashes are a part of it I guess.
