The weather tried it’s best to help, and some eventually managed to top up their tan – after they’d removed their waterproofs!

The Dunlops would like to thanks to all who took part, the many sponsors, hosts, both Dumfries and Galloway Vintage Machinery Club & Lower Nithsdale YFC for their marshalling etc.
