Will and Paul win class on 2013 Tour of Hamsterley

On a day of mixed fortunes for the Toyota Corolla crews, Will Midgley and Paul Slingsby finished a very creditable 45th overall and 1st in Class. This will certainly boost their overall RAC Championship position after finishing 3rd in Class and 34th overall on the Riponian  a few weeks ago, an event where they were leading before problems with the car dropped time and places.

Back to the Tour of Hamsterley, where John Midgley and Geoff Maybank had to retire unfortunately on SS2 with a blown engine. James Slater and Malcolm Smithson were doing very well even without intercom for first three stages, however on SS5 the throttle cable bolt came loose and cost them over 6 minutes. They did however recover and finished in 60th position, 6th in class.

Thanks to all the organisers and especially the Marshals for a great event.
