I am takin part in another Sole event in the Insight this weekend.

It's like an Autotest but without the reversing. Basically this mean the most nimble cars will do very well.

I'm hoping for a good result.

To enter you have to be a member of a motor club.

However, if you e-mail the organiser (I'll PM you his details) you may be able to get in.

I think we start at about 9am

Well, a pretty good day really.

There were 18 car in attendance, amongst them were 2 Lotus Elises, Mazda MX-5, 2 Westfield Sevens, an Auto test special & a number of other cars.

The Insight was by far the lowest powered car there.

So I was very please to win my class (under 1400cc class) & to get a 3rd overall, only 1 Elise & a Westfield were ahead of me.

I'll post a more in depth write up when I have full results.

A few very surprised people there at the end of the day.
