FDMC Spring Solo, March 2004

(Pictures - Tony Large and Bruce Driffill: to display captions, rest cursor on pictures)

Our first Solo (or AutoSolo) attracted an encouraging 60 entries, from FDMC and six invited clubs. We hope this selection of pictures give a flavour of the event (if you were competing, there are more at the Tony Large Photographic website). The drivers took two runs through four large tests, and final positions, as usual in Solo's, were extremely close. Five seconds covered the first five places, and Ross & District MC's Simon Harris took first overall, in his Golf.
