Thanks Skully.

I managed to get in early this week after missing last week. The snow in that middle stage really helped me appreciate the sun in the following two.

I made it pretty clean, for the first time I didn't need any resets. I guess having snow banks alongside the road helped. I almost came undone on the final stage when I rolled the car and (in a separate incident) cracked my windscreen. A definite improvement over my past efforts though.

Sweden went well for me. No major incidents. The escort handles well in the snow.

I found Monaco really tough. I was going well on the first stage until the final quarter, then lost a couple of minutes recovering from various spin outs. That set the tone. My only clean run was the second-last stage, which was pretty much all asphalt.

Then on the final stage, I ran off the track in the first couple of minutes. I tried to get back on track manually but went over the edge and totaled my Escort. Should have hit the recovery button.

Had a perfectly clean run in Monaco. Didn't even scratch the paint on the car. Love the Escort. I used to own one. I miss it now.

Made it through Finland in one piece. Not real clean, but better than Monaco for sure. Needed a couple of recoveries at least, and wasn't quite able to repair to 100% a couple of times.
