FDMC March Solo, 2007, Page 2
In this Tandem pairing, Gordon Byers and his Renault 5 GT turbo were taking part in their first FDMC event,
while Ian Harrison presses on in his Mondeo, to win Class D and finish 7th overall.
Was it really dark enough to need headlights?... Bill Mexson (XR2i) and Paul Smith (205 XS) obviously thought so.
Derek Looker was driving one of his collection of 205's, and newcomer Mike Taylor drove his 998 Mini.
Our last Tandem picture shows Alan Hockham's Caterham, and David Garside with his latest Nova; two very different
cars, but looking very evenly matched on this run, with David eventually finishing second out of 10 drivers in
Class F, and 6th overall.
And here's one pair of the Tandem courses (not to scale)
