    Default Mafeking Rallysprint

    I ran my 205 Si/GTi at the HRAs Mafeking Rallysprint yesterday.
    Result was a pleasing equal 5th, 2 seconds behind Derrick White's 504.
    We were both happy to be up there with some of the HRAs hotshots including 1984 ARC champion Dinta Officer in his Red Centre to Gold Coast Rally winning Galant.
    A Nissan SR 20 powered Escort and a very well driven Mercedes 280E were a little further ahead but still only 5 seconds or so a run faster.
    THe 205 worked a lot better on dirt than at Haunted Hills last week although the engine is now really in need of replacement, right down in power (I drove my unleaded 505 GTi just then and it seems to go better!) and quite smoky. This is an untouched (except for head gasket) 25 year old XU9JA from a UK 205.
