Before we go any further with this new blog on my adventures in the world of club rallying, I’d like to clear something up. I’m not the sporty type. I can’t run fast and at school I was rubbish at football and rugby. I could barely blag my way through a game of cricket and lived in terror of the annual sports day. Despite my job, I’m not even a dedicated follower of motorsport. 

So now that’s out of the way, how come I’m hooked on the ‘sport’ of rallying? The reason is simple. It’s the best way I’ve ever found to have fun behind the wheel of a car, in fact it’s utterly intoxicating.
