I think I'll be setting up stakes and tape for the Rally Time Trial during the Targa on the Friday, but not sure yet as waiting for a comms plan for the event. I'm doing stop line management radio on the RTT - it's a stonking stage and from both speccy areas there are good views, Hill Road one better, though, in my view. I'll have a better idea at the weekend so will report back here! Are you competing, marshalling or spectating?

Be warned, the Co-op in Tob is being refurbished and a large part of it is currently closed off with reduced stock. The Spar in Salen and Dougie's in Dervaig have brought in extra supplies for the duration.

I'm photographing the targa and I might go spectating on the RTT. I'll probably have a wander up there on Friday night and see what it's like for viewing. The road itself looks great but it depends how far away the viewing is.

Thanks for the Co-op news, that's useful to know as I do usually go there a couple of times for supplies.

I'm setting off in the morning, I should be there this time tomorrow

Hope you had a good trip up. Must admit, I'd like to be out spectating at various places on the Targa - don't get much opportunity to watch and photograph cars!

Sorry for the slow reply, there wasn't much in the way of internet connection where I was staying. I thought the targa was great, a pretty hectic day trying to cram everything in but, other than missing the lunch halt with the test I was on before running at 1:30 rather than minutes I got to everywhere I wanted to.

I had a walk through part of the TT on Thursday with a view to watching but the speccie area ended just before where I wanted to watch from so I didn't bother going. I have a hatred for being penned in although I understand that rallying must cater for those who aren't capable of looking after their own safety...

A shame the weather was pretty bad nearly every day of my visit but it was still a good nine days. Next year is already being planned
