      I might have ‘fought’ you in a sumo suit at Avon Park!

        Iggy …the lad I fought thought he could out do a ahem young ahem ..33 year old . After a couple of jabs and pushing .. he was out of the ring ..a young 20 something wannabe ….if you check the write up in stuart lannings magazine at the time .. not going to mention its name … take a look.and you will see me standing in a group outside the “racers return” … just after the rain gave way … I’m willing to throw down the gauntlet if ever the opportunity of a sumo suit kafuffull is on a rally camp site

    The best rallies on my opion was the 90s when there wasn’t everyone in to make money and you travelled up and down the country to meet up with your rally friends, unfortunately that was the de ade I met col and it’s been down hill from then, 🙂

(we dont still have the same tent haha) cheers Boggy

    IoW early 90s we used to go to CCI rallies, run by legend Tony Class (RIP).
    I wouldn’t consider them “pirate”… Just our thing…and a good time was always had.
    They weren’t always August either…
    Great write up

    Great write up Col. I started out in 95’ and most of these scoots were still about then.
    Hopefully see you in Alfreton at the weekend ✌
