On Sunday I marshalled on the Debden Targa Rally. My son was driving his Mk.2 Escort RS2000 with my grandson navigating.
I was delighted to see just one Mini entered. It was a 1380 driven by Robert Milligan. This Mini was in beautiful condition, sounded great and finished in the top 25, I believe - a great result considering the level of opposotion. Well done Robert, I enjoyed meeting you.
The rally itself was great and my son and grandson finished in 5th place, despite it being only my grandson's second ever rally.
We need more Minis out on these Targa rallies. They are a lot of fun, very friendly and not too demanding on car, driver or navigator.
