Abingdon CAR-nival Rally, June 2006

(Pictures - RallyGallery: to display captions, rest cursor on pictures)

On a blisteringly hot June weekend, this year's CAR-nival Rally ran with its usual full entry, comprising 100 cars. This included nine FDMC crews, and of these, Guy Wigley and Mark Burton, in their ex - Francois Delecour Peugeot 306 Maxi, were front runners in the event throughout the day, eventually finishing third overall

Neil Harrison, with Terri Pearson co driving, finished 'best of the rest' among the FDMC entries, and a strong 33rd overall, on the first ever rally outing for Neil's 205GTi 1.9.

Next placed, 40th overall and 10th in class, were Adrian May and Graham Skeggs, after suffering a couple of punctures in their 205GTi 1.6.
