One of the final tests on the now revered Rally of the Tests was held and organised by MCC at Halton army training camp, just off junction 34 of the M6.
The compact venue still made for a challenging test, with nearly all of the private roads and car parks used for testing the handling and pace of all kinds of historic machinery.
Paul Moon has kindly provided us with some pictures from his travels with Warton rallying outfit TEG sport. Check them out in the gallery.
I have just installed a new script on the gallery to make viewing the pictures easier, feedback welcomed.
