Another tests type event in the North, this time organised by Wigton motor club, the event is based in west Cumbria near Whitehaven on Sunday 15th October, I believe it is a round of the NESCRO championship. As of the weekend there are 16 cars in the historic section and 15 in the modern targa event. There will be a maximum of 30 in each section.

Good to see a couple of other Triumphs on the entry list, alongside my TR7 there is a TR7 V8 and a TR3A. Others on the list so far are a couple of Minis, couple of Escorts, Imp and even a 1937 Austin 7 and others.

On the targa event the Mazda MX5 seems to be a popular choice with 5 of the 15 cars being one.

Well have to say that was a good days fun. A good few tests at three different venues, most of which were at a disused Alcan factory/warehouse. On this site alone there were six different tests in the morning some of which were actually in the buildings. In the afternoon we had four separate tests back at Alcan, three of which were repeats of the morning tests and the other used the others effectively joined together. The other venues were a car park at the start venue and a large piece of disused land at Maryport, these two tests were both done twice.

I think overall we came away 13th or 14th but we did win our class so very pleased with that.
