Late-night drama…

It may be after midnight, but it will be a good few hours before some of the Civic Challenge hopefuls get to their beds. Both Billy Davidson and Grant Inglis have been having last-minute brake issues, however both are set to make the start in the morning.

After much zipping in and out of the bar, it became apparent Davidson and co-driver Martin McCabe were in trouble. The big AP calipers and brakes fitted to their ex-John McClory EK4 Civic didn’t comply with Challenge regulations, and had to be substituted for standard anchors. This caused hours of consternation as the guys tried to get the new brakes dialled in, but after a swift stop outside the pub in Melrose it became clear Billy had sorted the problem. Inglis, meanwhile, hasn’t yet had the chance to drive his car more than 6 miles in one go. Tomorrow could be interesting…
