I seem to recall mentioning in last night’s post that it was cold in Bancroft. Well folks, last night was nothing compared to this morning! When I left the hotel at 6:30 it was minus 19 degrees celsius according to the dash in the 2009 Mazda6 that I have this week. Ponder that if you dare. Suffice it to say that it was damn cold.
Early morning for a winter rally means teams spend lots of time coaxing heat into reluctant race cars. Remember, the modern cars are big horsepower, full race monsters that don’t like cold. Most of the classics breath through Weber carbs, which are not exactly conducive to this sort of cold.
As there was next to no internet signal available and my night time photography skill suck, not to mention that I’m a wuss, I decided to come home early and report a bit and leave the Flat Over Crest guys to post the final results later tonight. Oh yeah, they take much better photos than I do too!
Did I mention it was cold? I’ve had a 2 hour drive in a nice warm car and a hot shower and my nards are still somewhere near my lungs!
