What a lovely Canadian Couple these 2 were in their Mustang. Len & Laine :)
Georgina took to the stage and promptly handed over to the clerk of the course mr spillers...
The f & b industry should be proud of this ol geezer. He certainly did them proud.... :)))
Tee hee meoooooow...
These two 'young' chaps in their Ford picked up 3rd in class and were most honourable to give a mention to Anton & the lovely Inge from the big Bentley who sadly had to retire early.
The Bentley Team no doubt would have collected a well deserved 2nd in Class and these guys were quick to acknowledge that and the reason they slipped into 3rd place..
Marco & Marienne in the 4 litre Bentley then slipped into 2nd position and The Itala Team into 5th, being the Roller..
So without a doubt 3 of the 6 Bentleys in our class would have picked up 1st, 2nd & 3rd.. So we are quite pleased & proud with 5th place..
Kurt & Mark in the blue Mustang also picked up a pair of 'Begging Bowls' for their great efforts :))
These 2 Kiwis in the Volvo picked up an award for driving flat out at every opportunity, eventually blowing up their engine and then finding a replacement on facebook and then continued to drive like a 'man possessed' lol (good sports tho - even sprayed us with sand a few times)
David gave them a bit of a pep talk about the P2P that they are planning in 2016..
Men in skirts Mmmmmmmmm lol
Gerry Crown on the other hand was the Oldest Swinger in Town (82 years young he told me) and he picked up a Well Deserved 2nd in Class..
Great sport (met him on the P2P where i think he picked up 1st in class)
Altough now an official Ozzy..
He was born in London and wait for it.....
Schooled in Barry, Wales and then as a teenager hopped off to Australia... I did detect a slight welsh accent... :)))
They picked these frocks up on route..
Cool as a cucumber Herr Egli (Martin) all suited
And booted and ready to rock & roll and make some Mischief...
And just when we thought the Prize Giving was over and we could finally eat - Up got this mischievous pair (Martin & Robert) and took over the microphone to do some more 'Danke Schones'...
The Marshalls & Mechanics were hauled up and applauded..
And then we were dragged up too..
So many peeps had come onto us saying that they were astonished that we hadnt had a prize or a mention and i have to say that David certainly Did deserve a 'something' for all the effort he put into getting the Itala to Mandalay..
The Itala is without doubt the toughest car to drive on this route and had the least mechanical attention whilst on the rally but i guess there just wasnt enough Trophys to go around this time...
Our Big Yin was busy back in Bangkok getting back to Top Fit condition after his tumble so the show was left in the hands of others so ...
Sour grapes to us tee hee.
Lots of competitors were puzzled as to how the prizes were allocated but our prize was arriving in Mandalay and still rocking & rolling and still fit enough to drive to Yangon so :))))) 👍
2 days rest & relaxation in Hong Kong awaited the Itala Team....
