January 25th 2012 - Rack, Stack and Pack

Welcome to Team CRX89B blog site for the 2013 Rallye Monte Carlo Historique.

This year our team comprises of old hands Al Vines, Peter Moss as co-ydriver, and Nigel Chetwynd in charge of servicing. We welcome Lisa Thornton to support Nigel in our brilliant Land Rover Discovery service vehicle.

We are once again competing in our trusty 1964 2293cc Austin Cooper S - CRX89B. We are competing as part of a team of seven cars - Team GB Rallye Monte Carlo Historique 2013.

We have spent all day preparing the Disco and packing all our stuff. It is now after midnightf and In a few hours time we shall be leaving for the coast.

The weather has become very unpleasant, with heavy rain onto ice and snow making for some interesting driving conditions.

I have included some pictures of CRX in the ice and snow, team members at our team day January 20th, and our team logo.
