The next event we’ll be covering will be the Silver Fern. We’re very lucky this year as it’s running through Tauranga on Sunday November 11th. Being someone with a little bit of a Ford Escort problem, I’m pretty excited to see 20+ Escorts in the line up. It’s also great to see a friend of mine (Andrew Shrimpton) entered in the Frond section this year in his Mk2 Escort. I’m really excited as Andrew will be sporting our website on his car – Thanks heaps for doing that Andrew – be great to get some more exposure for the site.
Dee and I will be marshaling at the mid point of SS8 on Day 1. Unfortunately I have to then work the rest of the week so will miss out on the rest of the event. We will be looking to video / photograph what we can from our marshal point as best we can. We will get our photo / videos up as soon as we can after next Sunday.
Luckily another mate of ours, Steve Russell ( www.clubsportphotos.co.nz ), will be following the rally all week so hopefully he will get lots of cool photos and videos. I’ll make sure I get the link from Steve when they’re available.
This should be a great event, and I recommend you make the effort to go and see at least one stage. The stages and route maps are available at www.silverfernrally.co.nz/rally2012/maps.php and daily results / live times should be available at www.chrissport.co.nz.
Dee and I would like to wish all competitors the best of luck, especially Andrew Shrimpton (we’re allowed to be biased!) Hope you have a ball Andrew, and get some epic footage on the GoPro especially from the Mighty Motu!
