Nelson Car Club Day/Night Hillclimb

21 July 2002.

COOL EVENT !! Great road of just over 2km - tight and twisty combined with large yumps and a ford, the road winding up the hill. We did one practice run and three timed runs during the day and then two runs at night (in very thick fog !).

The car went really well and I'm rapt with the result! Gary Orton came with me on a run and then took me in his car - wow, what a driver. He came with me on the next two runs and I improved my times by 10 seconds over the 2km course. We finished up 18th out of 27 cars - great result seeing that we had in the back of our minds that the Hawkes Bay Rally is on next weekend ! Enormous thanks to Gary for his help !

English folio due at school and a stats and science test Tuesday - plus having to get the car ready for us to go on the ferry early Thursday morning. Life is busy at the moment.
