Guess who?

 Yup,that's right, it's me! Or it least it was me last weekend at the TI Rally School in Yorkshire. 

The day was a gift, last years Christmas present actually, from my husband, and I can honestly say it has to go down as one of the best presents I've ever received. It was absolutely fantastic. I doubt very much if he will ever be able to cash in the brownie points earned on this little jaunt.

So why the rally driving experience?  I'm not by any means a petrol head (as far as I'm concerned torque is a type of neck jewellery). Nor am I an avid rally fan ( if not for the power of google I wouldn't even know who Sebastien Loeb is ) but having caught a bit of the world championships on TV, one of those channel flicking moments, I remember saying it looked like fun and I'd love to give it a go. 

Which just goes to prove he does listen to me occasionally ;o)  

Spot the lone female amongst all the raging testosterone!

Oh you have made me laugh this morning! What a fab present. I tried hinting about something like this once, there is a place on the way to my in laws where you can go and drive tanks!!!!!!! but the suggestion fell on deaf ears.

I'd keep on dropping hints if I were you, it is most definitely worth it.

All credit to your husband for picking up on that, and to you for giving it a go. It's not something I feel the urge to try but I have a few friends who would jump at the chance.

Wow... I love that pic of you with all those guys (and so nice to put a face to a name)... I could not think of anything worse, but I am really glad you had a good time...!

Jenny, yes it was amazing and great fun too. I'm so glad I had the opportunity.

It's not for everyone Theresa, I can understand that. What do you fancy having a go at?

Thanks Ali, the guys were a fun group to be with, and since I wasn't a threat on the track they were prepared to humour me :o)
