Not a good weekend sorry guys. Car stayed on 4 wheels so not that bad.
Did the first 5 stages without any probs. Pleased with how we were performing and still room for improvement.
Whilst we were in the queue for stage 6 I started the car to move it and couldnt select any gears. Let the clutch out and the car stalled. After a bit of trial and error we sussed out that the car was in first gear but the gear lever wouldnt go forwards or backwards only left and right but not as far left as it should go. couldnt get it out of first. couldnt seect any other gears. End of rally. End of weekend.
Spoke to Tom at BLS on the way back and he thinks that the selector may have ridden over and got stuck out of position. Elected to abandon the plans to compete on Sunday avoiding a potential all nighter doing a gearbox change and then travelling to Barmouth.
Unloaded everything and put most things away and then drove down to service for my wife and her driver in the Astra.
Good news is they had a good day finishing 19th O/A with a lot more powerful cars out there.
Plan is to clear up and then drop the gearbox sump off and see if we can see whats caused the problem. Could have understood it and accepted the situation more if we had been on the stage but for it to happen in the queue is really frustrating
When we retired we were up to 35 O/A and 4th in class and getting quicker. Thats motorsport I suppose.
