Autotest Round 5 – 31st of December 2013

With a week that involved gales, flood warnings and any other extreme weather you could name (almost a repeat of Round 4’s weather conditions!) the day started grey and damp. The entry list certainly made up for it though; with the new C2 of Jon & Kieron Stynes first outing on an SMC event, the stunning Vauxhal Chevette of Rob Glendinning, and James McWhir had brought his immaculate RS2000 too. There were of course the “regulars” in attendance too.

The tests were reasonably fast and flowing and over exuberance and a damp surface may have caused quite a few seconds lost to wheel spin and overcooked handbrake turns (especially in the case of both of the drivers of  “Colin the Corsa”).

However, it all came down to the last tests and Barry Lindsay, in his trusty 106, saw off both Stephen Dixon, in the super light and nippy Corsa, and Andrew Graham in the Puma (which is fast becoming a regular in the top spot on it’s outings).
