The Comax Rally

As I recall we started out from outside Rafferty Newmans old Workshops in a convoy heading towards London, At the front was Trevor Aspin guiding us with a compass on his wrist, all was going fine till we hit Guilford, outside the Little Chef there were some traffic lights, some nice person had dropped oil over the road and David Seymour went for a tumble, the police turned up and noticed that Dave didn't have any L plates, they wouldnt let him continue until he had got some, for some reason he had to go back to Gosport to get some. We all waited for him to return after a few hours he reappeared and off we set again.

My GP then cut out I couldn't find out why so I opened the fuel cap to see if the tank was empty, it was full so I tried to start it and woopee it burst into life, of we went again, by this time it was getting late my bike stopped again it sounded like lack of fuel so I peered into the tank again and noticed the breather hole was blocked, having cleared it we moved of again. We hit London around midnight and were completely lost driving round Trafalgar Square, Trevor noticed a Policeman and asked directions, ( in those days they were older than us) we were directed the wrong way up Oxford Street, it was one way, we eventually came out of London wnd with the help of Trev's compass we were on the road to Essex, we eventually got to the rally site around 6 in the morning much to the annoyance of the other competitors. We put up the tents and wandered of through the park to find food, there was breakfast being served up at a cafe in the woods joy, Mungo Jerry was blaring out singing In the Summertime. The rally went well as I recall
