September also saw the return of the Bee – we, of course, mean Honey Bee – the MGA with a sting – driven by none other than mad-Dave who, again, had it in his mind to operate in both Group 1 and 8 (with Nazdar) at (almost) the same time. Not ubiquity, but certainly as close to it as one could dream… And it all went great, at least at first, with Dave even clinching the pole position in the Colliers Cup.
And to top it up, Heather, she, the master of Miriam, the MG Midget, also went racing. Not only that, but Heather also took it upon herself to go full-chat in the rain (while the ink on her racing licence is barely dry) – and that’s the spirit!
All in all, another great set of experiences, even if the conclusion of the weekend turned out quite sour for Dave as he ended up spinning the Bee into a guard rail, a meeting that left the poor thing quite literally shell-shocked (and some) and Dave out of the running for the Collier Cup that he really looked forward to take home (again). That’s racing, as they say (and the Glen certainly can reserve quite a few surprises like that for both the novice and the practiced hands – proof that you can never take anything for granted – at life speed!).
Meanwhile, enjoy the few pictures attached and let us know if you want us to relay any friendly message of commiseration to Dave…
