In the spirit of taking my motoring backwards, I found myself in a field. But, this time, I meant to be in a field. And I hadn't come in through the gate backwards; I'd come in the conventional way.
And I'd got there in something four-wheel-drive and with proper tyres. And now I was about to fiddle with the differential. What a way to spend a morning. Brilliant.
Back to the backwards bit: I'm in a Land Rover 110. And it's raining. Raining like it's going out of fashion. And the bottom of the tyres have now disappeared beneath the surface of the field. No matter.

A successful rally driving father ensured an early introduction to motorsport and, fascinated as he was by rallying, the fourth estate was of equal interest. Having read (or at least looked at the pictures) from the age of two, he joined <i>Motoring News</i> in 1996 and later moved to Autosport in 2002.@davidevansrally More features by David Evans
