    gaps were not consistent between vehicles.

    The criteria was 4mph and no more than one car's gap between the vehicle in front.
    My mate was 781 and I was 782. When we got to the start he took off like a scalded cat and I took after him in low fifth, FLAT OUT in low fifth in my Disco 1. I don't know what speed that was as the dust cloud was so thick I could only see about five yards in front of me!
    I said to my passenger that I reckoned we'd all blown it!
    I can't work out how the gap became so big. We were flat out for over a mile before we caught up with the rest of the cars...

    We only saw five or six cars parked up as we raced around the course, but a couple of those were marshal's cars. So not many I don't think
