View Full Version : Granite City Rally - Saturday 8th April

2nd April 2000, 11:03
Myself and a few other SIDC members are going to be marshalling on the GCR next weekend.

We will be staying over in Aberdeen on the Friday evening for a few beers and a curry, and then marshalling on the first stage Saturday morning (1st car through about 9am).

Is anyone else interested in meeting up on the Friday night, and possibly even help out on the Saturday ?

We are only really needed for the first stage in the morning, so you would be free to spectate at all the others, though the first stage is also the last, but there should be enough marshalls from the other stages by then.

You could if you wanted drive your car on the stage at any speed you want prior to the cars coming through ?

You'll get guaranteed on-stage (or close by) parking, perfect viewing (no-one stands in front of you) etc.

If anyone is interested, drop me an e-mail at
john@stewart.vhost.co.uk or

I'll be sorting out B&B for Friday night for some others anyway if you want me to arrange accomodation for you.

I would be interested in meeting up on Friday night. But having marshalled Bennachie before I'll give it a miss. Will be heading for Clashindarroch to spectate, if anyone is going that way.

(I see that ADMC is trying to discourage spectators again !!!!)

I'll be up on Friday, but visiting my Dad, and raring to go bright and early on Saturday morning.

We're also staying up for beers on Saturday night so goodness only knows what I'll be like on Sunday http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/wink.gif

John: any inside track on marshalls going out for beers on Saturday? What about Miles, I haven't seen him for ages (it seems) and I have my OWN digital camera this year http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/wink.gif?

Enjoy the first of the season, rally fans!

Beers on Saturday - sounds like a grand plan. Marshals of course get an invite to the post rally party of course http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/wink.gif

I'm still about but very very busy, so been hiding down rabbit holes + since we changed the systems here at work it's more difficult to post to I-chat....

Suppose that's my own fault, then.

Cameron, Have to catch up and admire your P1 (when you get it) http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/wink.gif
