A new event for 2021, the Cotswold Historic was run by Tavern MC. It was using some areas familiar to me, having moved to Wiltshire when I was 7, and some of the venues I’d been to a couple of months previously on the Kemble Targa.
For this event I was sat alongside Gavin Rogers in his Reliant Scimitar SE5a. Gavin was Clerk of the Course, and we were running as Car 0 on the day. Many years ago I’d done both course opening and course closing on the East Anglian Classic but it had been a while since I’d been on a Historic.
The event went well, with positive feedback from competitors etc, and we had a good day. It had been a while since I’d sat in a rear wheel drive car, and it made me realise I’d missed it! Whilst we had stuff we needed to do, we also managed to do a couple of the regularity sections. Having thought it was never something I’d be interested in, I may just be changing my mind… Watch this space!
