Default 10 years on the WRC

I thought this was quite fun, I'm finished for the year as I no longer do flyaways - travelling that far for a few days gets old.

I'm pretty sure that every year I've worked there someone called Seb has won

I got my initial job via an advert on here and only intended on doing 2 events, it sucks you in like that.

I've met a good few of you on event over the years, but have tried to keep my working there on the down low.



Anyhow, thought it was a fun anniversary.

I ran the tracking, timing and data collection in the service park for 7 years, now I provide internet services to the teams.

Easily the best in my ten years, even if a Seb won again.

Pretty much all of them, some know me by name. For a good few years I opened the car doors as they arrived back in the service park so I could collect the data, a lot of the boxes were under the drivers seat, sweaty. Most are really nice, a few are arseholes.
