Well what an exciting few days in Wales.  The rally is certainly something I can recommend if motor sport is your thing.  Getting to each venue can be quite difficult...parking down small forest roads in the main.  Spectator designated areas are quite restricted but by getting the venues early and if you don't mind walking, some excellent viewing positions can be achieved.  It is however import to recognise that motor sport can be dangerous, so a good rule of thumb is to be above the cars.

The two photos below did actually come from Fridays racing at a place called Sweet Lamb.  This for the main part is set in a bowl with viewing areas around it.  It had good parking and unlike the other days, is not a forest stage.  It was however very wet from fog that persisted the whole day.

On the Saturday, I had my first experience of racing within forests and I have to say it was very exciting.  Below is a photo which actually includes my son...bit of a dodgy position but he did get some good photos.

Moving on from motor sport, the 5th/6th November was my latest parkrun weekend.  Cambridge parkrun on Saturday once more had a large turnout...

Sunday proved to be also busy with 100 juniors running at Wimpole.  On a personal level, this was important as my grandson completed his first parkrun that day.  I hope it is the first of many...

I am still not sure exactly where I will be next weekend (12th/13th) but I did notice that Cambridge are at home to Fylde in rugby, so I guess that may be a possibility.  The following weekend is the St Neots half marathon and I may be tempted to cheer on some of my friends in Abbotsley whilst taking a few unofficial photos.  The 27th will hopefully see me at Cottenham point to point and the first weekend in December (3rd and 4th) has been marked down as my next parkrun weekend.
