The Monte Carlo Historique & Classique Awards

Those of you who follow Blue Diamond on Facebook will know of the WD’s recent trip to Glasgow.

Once again, the little 9 proved it’s strength of design and build, covering over 426 miles in two days including a brief snow flurry around Locherbie. On the return journey, the WD covered 208 miles in four hours and six minutes at an average speed of 50.7 mph.

The reason for the trip north of the border was to attend the Monte Carlo Rally Awards held at the Art Council in Glasgow. Myself and the rest of the team had been very fortunate to be awarded the ‘Spirit of the Event’ award. I had taken the decision that we couldn’t win that award and not turn up in the WD!
