I've been there a few times, it's a great day out.   I have a Sammy Miller story as well. 

I was a travelling marshall in a trial some years back and was riding around on a hillside in Gloucestershire showing riders where the sections were.  This rider approached me and even with his heImet on I was thinking 'I know that guy'  . The rider then asked where the first section is and immediately I recognised him as Sammy Miller due to his lovely 'Nothern Irish/ New Forest mix' accent.

I wanted to ask him for his autograph on my running sheet but thought it was a bit inappropriate. He then rode off across the slippy hillside like he was out for a sunday stroll :classic_cool:

Way to keep your composure.
