Mintex Rally 2019

Mintex Rally Yorkshire 2019 – Second test for 891VHX

Based in York, at the Principal Hotel, on 26th, 27th and 28th April 2019. 891 VHX visited Bramham Park, Harewood House, Harewood Hillclimb, Esholt and other Mintex Rally stages all arranged by Tim Nash and his band of helpers. We were joined by some great star drivers from the 70s and 80s and much fun was had.

The highlight for me was the long gravel stage around Bramham Park which allowed us to put the LSD to good use again (although it was a bit cut up by the time the Group 4 Escorts had been round). Only issue for the day, a rear tyre puncture at Church Fenton which was quickly repaired by the local garage meaning that we could still have a blast or two around the Airfield before returning to York for an evening of entertainment. Another succesfull event.

I hope he knows what he’s doing… 891VHX getting a good thrasing round Church Fenton Airfield. The period Michelin XWX tyres are nothing short of amazing too.
