Only a week to go!!!
Only 8 Saabs out now but it will be still be one of the biggest Saab entries on a rally in this country for many a year, so well worth turning out to see them.

Geoff is correct, there will be a fantastic selection of Saab's out next weekend, 2T's, V4's, 99's and an ex works 900. The route takes in Wales, Northern England and Scotland over four days so there are loads of opportunities for spectating, including lots of night stages. When did you last hear a two stroke charging through the forests! The service parks should be great, we are trying to make sure the Saab crews will all be in the same area, so come and have a look and a coffee with the crews, I'm sure you will get a warm welcome......unless we are busy hammering cars back into shape!
I've left the 96 at home for this one, and will be out in the 99, but on behalf of all the crews we welcome any support in the stages, it's always great to see folk cheering you on!

Have got my tickets for Friday Shelsley walsh and for Radnor/Epynt in the afternoon. Going to Leominster for scrutineering on the Thursday, hopefully see all the Saabs entered. This could be a once in a lifetime opportunity to see 8 cars of the right type competing in a serious rally. Anyone else going? Will probably be going in Saaburu 96 v4 colour Subaru world rally blue, no bumpers etc. for anyone who doesn't know. Or could come up in Ratty, tatty 96 v4 classic trials car. If I could get info.where to watch either Radnor or Epynt off road then I will definitely come up in Ratty. We often go where most 4x4 don't go! So anyone with local knowledge any directions as to where to watch unofficially?

My plans have got a bit fragmented with the demise of one of the 96's which was entered (engine blown) so no longer servicing, but will be up for the Friday/Sat and a bit of Sunday hopefully to get some spectating in. Hopefully catch up with you Gavin at one of the service halts so best of luck to you.

I'll be looking out for Ratty and any other Saabists - definitely an event not to be missed!

I would have hoped to make this. Unfortunately I'm having a small op on my left knee the morn, so will be somewhat mobility challenged.
No way.

Clear skys bright sun in Keilder Saturday. Another great day and 6 of the Saabs still going. The crews have plenty of stories to tell, Jim's 99 running out of wheels and Gavin being baulked by a Lancia with a Rodant on the roof - perhaps the rodant should be facing backwards to tell the driver to get out of the way!!!! Frantic activity on Colin's 96 at Keilder service - pics to follow.

Sadly had to return home today so left the crews hard at it going through the Scottish stages. Finish tomorrow (Monday) with more stages in Kielder.

Tuthill's 96 now out with electrical failure

More pics the 2 stroke was flying - some impressive times for so little BHP and they caught cars on some of the stages!!
