I'm not supposed to know ANYTHING about how well we're doing during the event - over the years, we've found it works better if Brian looks after all that.
But last night, I looked at the starting order for tomorrow (mainly to see how much sleep I was going to get) and we're fifth-last.
In Targa, unlike most performance rallies, the faster cars go last, so the 'crocodile' of cars tends to 'accordion' closed as the stage progresses, rather than expand.
"Not bad!" I said to Brian. He said, "You aren't supposed to know, but two of those guys didn't even do the Prologue. You are in a three-way tie for second-fastest."
And we had to slow down for a car which broke down on the course! We would have been second for sure.
OK, so it's only the Prologue, and most everyone (except Matthew Oldford in a hot Civic who was fastest) was taking it easy - but so were we.
But so far so good!
