Van Doorne confirmed at McLaren for 2018

2017 Vandoorne

Stoffel Vandoorne has been confirmed at McLaren next year – but it is interesting to note that Fernando Alonso has not yet been confirmed. My spies tell me that this will be dependent on what engines the team uses in 2018. The plan seems to be to have Renaults, but Honda is still trying to figure out a deal and will probably not let go until they have alternatives, which at the moment does not seem to be the case, unless Scuderia Toro Rosso can be convinced to go with the Japanese engines. A solution is obviously required as quickly as possible, but Alonso has few real options in F1 terms and so is unlikely to jump elsewhere, even if folks in the United States would like to see him over there.

Border Counties Rally a Huge Success

170324 BCR Hexham Courant

With just 10 Weeks notice, local rally enthusiasts pulled together to put on one of the most celebrated rounds of the British Rally Championships (BRC).

Whickham and District Motor Club (WDMC) and Hawick and Border Car Club jointly hosted the Brick and Steel Border Counties Rally, which was used to kick start the BRC season after a late cancellation.

With a stage in Kielder Forest, the round was labelled a great addition to the championships with runner-up Tom Cave taking to Twitter to say it was the ‘best organised BRC rally I have ever done’.

WDMC chairman Ollie Currie, of Hexham, was delighted with the success of the rally, and is hoping the teams have done enough to secure the BRC next year too.

Some of the wor1d’s best rally drivers descended on the area for the championships, with Sweden’s Fredrick Ahlin teaming up with Norwegian navigator Torstein Eriksen to take the victory after two days of intense competition.

The all-Welsh crew of Cave and James Morgan were long-time leaders in their Ford Fiesta R5 but settled for second spot, ahead of fellow countrymen Osian Pryce and Dale Furniss who took third in a similar machine.

Rally fans don’t have long to wait before the BRC rolls back into Kielder, with the hosting of the International Pirelli Rally on April 29 and 30.

Plonker of the month - September 2017

Plonker September

Plonker of the Month for September is this supposedly disabled driver who obviously can't work out what the white lines are for, having managed to leave their vehicle with both offside wheels well outside the parking bay.

I suppose at least there is plenty of room for cyclists to ride safely past between the car and the kerb....
