Lots of cars over

First stage is the Douglas Prom stage on Thursday evening - first cars due off 19.00 ish.  Well worth a look.

Good luck to anyone involved!  Enjoy.

Where do I complain? For the first time ever I might be mildly inconvenienced by it :P

I'm a bit confused about where SS4 actually starts. The leaflet through the door suggests is starts a fair bit earlier than is shown on the map.

I would imagine its past the houses down towards the bus shelter.....but not 100% sure I am afraid.

 

Apologies for the mild inconvenience :-)

That's where is usually starts, but leaflet seems to suggest it's been pulled back to somewhere my Gandhi's / Majestic Apartments

Ah well, some excitement to look forward to tomorrow. Will we be trapped in? Not that we go out anyway...

We're all in it together. I might have to work out an escape route through someone's garden on to the coastal path.

Or just stay in, like I normally do

Stay in.  Going out is overrated!

Feeling a slight urge to panic buy though. After all, we could be cut off for five or six hours :o

Used to do marshalling, recovery and media back in the day. Good fun.

Just been down with my son to the Villa to watch for an hour.

Brilliant :)

Missed the first 45-50, but caught most of the escorts and minis etc ( and that Opal Kadett !!!! FQ). Pure music to the ears.

Hope it's fine tomorrow, I want to see a lot more this year.

Was watching at Keristal this afternoon and very much enjoyed the spot too, first time I've spectated there.

Was talking to a bloke who said that the stage you refer to SS4 had to be shortened by 1/4 - 1/2 a mile because a homeowner had complained ( sad bastard).

I said that I wondered if it was some "old git" and he said more than likely................... SO ? ...............................Fess up now !

The whole thing was very much tongue in cheek.

Yeah, I knew that, just having a laugh. 

One of your neighbours is a complete **** though. :angry:

Castletown was totes maze, we started watching over by the bridge but it was too busy so we quickly moved over to by the toilets, then went to the little road by the side of the castle, then we went to the square, then went to the road that goes to the road with the bowling green on by Buchan - bloody great rally 100% entertaining.
