Event: Micra to compete in Car Trial 21/22 July 12

Yes, Today and Tommorow. Come along and take a look....

Perhaps you've seen or heard of Land Rover Trials, well they do it in production cars too!

Saturday I will be in the Cymru Trial organised by North Wales Car Club
The venue is Hendrellwyn-y-Maen Farm, near Llangernywele. This is around 8 miles south of Abergele on the Northern North Wales coast – with the spectacular views of Snowdonia (unless it’s raining!) the post code for you Sat Nav is LL22 8TE. For more detailed information read the final instructions posted on the linked page.

Sunday I will be in the HCC Wales Car Trial organised by Clwyd Vale Motor club
Ty Newydd Farm Newmarket Road, Dyserth LL18 6BS

Here's a look at an example of the kind of action might be involved

Frank, there is a crucial difference - it wasn't a time trial, there was no timing involved at all! I have been shooting video all day, just looking through it now. I'll post something to YouTube soon. Good news is I won the 10 car clubmans class with my friend who borrowed my car finishing 2nd.

Technically speaking Micras represented well with another one, a 1.3 si, taking the win in class 1 too. I had a nightmare day with a tyre with a puncture. I stopped on the way to the event and had it stripped down, a patch was applied but by the time it was rebuilt and balanced it was flat again. Perhaps it was multi punctured and we didn't find it or the tyre damaged it again when it was reinflated. We were forced to run on one good tyre and one ditchfinder, I mean the worst tyre I think I've ever owned, it's called a 'Dark Horse'. Right now I need a tyre bay that's open on Sunday.
