Italia - Corse Rally  
For a change, I cannot blame the lateness of this post on the Guild of Motor Endurance. They were actually really fast with uploading the (overall) results and pictures, but things have been a bit hectic on my end. Anyhoo...

The girls did quite well in this year's rally, finishing in 2nd place - despite transmission problems - and winning a couple of other trophies as well. Exactly what those other trophies are for, I can't fathom because the audio of the YT vid of the awards is too poor and they haven't put it up on the homepage. *shrugs*


Transmission problems, we haz them:
(It cracks me up that Francie's having a go at her husband's trademark "6 year old girl" pout, while Clare's laughing her ass off.)

Happy ladies & lots of shiny trophies:



And the promised bonus pic: Francie & Jez having a fag with Simon Cowell and Jimmy Carr outside of Scott's Restaurant in London.


I really like her new hairstyle, it shaves years off her look.

ION: A week ago, I actually came within a few inches of the absolutely fierce (in the best way possible) Mrs Clarkson and managed not to faint. I'm quite proud of myself. ;)

The look on our faces as she strode past us was epic I'm sure. As was the fact that the others girls had no idea why we were staring at each other with goggly expressions on our faces. She has lost a lot of weight though, from the charity cycling thing I'm guessing. it's a shame we didn't see Mindy this year though *sad face*

Yeah, I was all "ZOMG!!!1! *speechless*" while you were squeeing and the others looked like they though we were going mad(der). *g*

Ah well, I'll have to stalk Mindy at some other occasion . ;)

She is looking great, isn't she. Is Claire rather tall or is Francie rather petite? It's hard to tell when she's standing next to Jeremy, as everyone looks short next to him.

She's shorter than Hammond, so I'd lean to the 'petite' side. :D

i think i heard or read somewhere francie is about the same height as mindy, and mindy is 5'1" or thereabouts.

Francie actually is tiny. The 5'1" either she or Jez mentioned in an article seem about right.

According to Jez, she always worked out quite a bit but that charity bike ride probably demanded her getting even fitter.

I love the picture of the girls by the car and the last one is fantastic, they all look like they're having so much fun.

I can't believe I totally missed Francie, serves me right, for still being groggy from the late night on the Saturday.
