The above is a link to photos I took of some of the finishers of this year's LeJog.

Don't apologise, they are super pictures. What an interesting and varied selection of cars. That poor TR owner has got some work to do! Any idea what happened to him?

I don't know.

Road conditions were poor due to ice and snow, so I wondered if it had spun since it is damaged both front and back.
More worryingly, the front wheels seem to have a huge amount of negative camber :( .

The owner of the red T2000 informed me thus:

"The red TR4 damage at the back was the Rover P4 sliding into it at a control, and the front was were it decided to go through a wall."

He also said that the snow and ice made it difficult throughout Wales and Scotland with about 75% of the cars sustaining some damage.
The T2000 managed fine and only needed a push to get going on the ice on the occasions that they had stopped to assist the Minis!

As demonstrated locally with the recent 'surprise' weather; everyone thinks they know how to drive in snow and ice, but so few folk know how to stop in it!

Is that a large lump of filler that has dropped out? Looks as if it may have happened before!
