Taylor Torques: new challenges, but a grin from ear to ear

Last weekend’s Caves Classic was definitely the toughest rally I’ve competed in.
I was a little bit sceptical that I was going to hate blind rallying, however, when I crossed the flying finish of that stage the smile was from ear to ear.It’s a completely different challenge to pace notes, but it’s something I really enjoyed! As far as our day went, it was relatively trouble free. The car did its thing and although it didn’t want to idle in the morning, it pulled through. From a driving point of view, it wasn’t so bad either. We kept it clean all day, apart from a small excursion and a bit of an overshoot. From a results perspective I was moderately satisfied. I was aiming for a top 10 finish and we achieved that, however 9th or maybe even 8th was possibly achievable. Heading into the second last stage, we were sitting in 9th with a small margin over 10th when a cramp in my left foot forced our pace to slow. I tried hanging onto it as best I could, but there were spots where I just couldn’t go as hard. All things considered we got to the finish, maximised the experience and the car’s still straight. Not a bad day in the office, I’d say! Until next time, Taylor.
