I was out there marshalling in the bitter cold. I did the Ryemoor last year and decided then that if this years event were to follow the same format it was a round of the championship that I would miss.
The snowfall on the Friday night prior to the event left many wondering whether the event would run.
Run it did, but some crews did not manage to make it to the start because the snowfall in their neck on the woods was so bad that they could not get out of their own driveways.
Andy finished work at 6pm on the Saturday night after an early start. So he took the opportunity to a quick nap in the back of the car for the trip over to York.
The M62 was passable with care. I met Jez Turner at the start, then it was of to NTC3. Andy was still in the land of nod as we pulled up at our control. Jez had his gas BBQ with him and we were soon into the sausage sandwiches. The cars came and went with little drama.
So home to bed!
