The cars leave each morning at 1 minute intervals with the vintage cars going first. With a 1959 Jag we are in the ‘Classics’ category and go to the end of the start line. The majority of the vintage cars are quite capable of cruising at a very healthy speed and it seems to make little difference whether they are on a paved road or a rutted track so we rarely ever catch vintage competitors – instead this morning the city square celebrations meant that we caught the rush hour in UB. Two hours sitting behind belching yellow buses – though we did use the bus lane as it was marginally quicker – meant that the Jag’s engine temperature quickly hit 110′ – as did the cabin temperature.
