HERO Challenge Three – The Chicks Do The Double
Steve and Alex Chick win HC3 and take both Driver’s and Navigator’s titles
Simon Ayris heartache as his MGB hits brake trouble when leading by 20 secs
Jon Dunning and Ian Canavan a superb 2nd in RS2000, David and Ed Liddell 3rd in TR4 after great performance
Andy Pullan, making his debut as Clerk of the Course and route planner for HERO Challenge Three, didn’t have it easy in the build up to this event. Test venues were withdrawn requiring a last gasp re-route which was professionally handled by Pullan and the competition team, to the extent that nobody on HERO Challenge Three noticed. The same on event as the team were forced to cancel regularity five.
Andy was pleased overall as he knew everyone had enjoyed a cracking event. But as he summarised at prize giving and Steve Chick mentioned in his speech of thanks after receiving their winning awards; “After the PR programme of notifying as many as possible that the rally was happening, the reaction and support from the locals was impressive, they turned out in numbers to watch and cheer. In fact we have had emails coming in, one which said ‘what nice cars you have and what sensible people you all are,’ enough said!
