Overdose on coffee and keep stopping to have a peed - miss two turns (it was a lot of coffee).  Something I now in my 70s have problems with ........

Owner of the car is fast asleep on the back seat, move twice the normal number of squares until he wakes up.

"Throttle cable snaps approaching Corbridge. Miss a turn while you lash something up, then another when you get to a dealer."

When this happened, to a fellow TR7 Sprint owner in 1996, the second control was still at a Rover dealer in Corbridge and he was able to buy a throttle cable of sorts to do a better fix. Meanwhile, I succumbed to...

"You decide to check the alternator bolts and manage to snap off the rear lug. Subtract one from your next two dice rolls."

Reminds me of my silly and I forgot when doing our first list of incidents for the 'game'  

'Co-driver catching up on sleep as approaching control and woke him late to look out for it.  Overshot and have to go to end of very long dual carraigeway to get back to it.'

Keep 'em, coming!

Co-driver stops because he's too tired, wakes you up, but doesn't inform you that there's a control approaching. SatNav doesn't either, and co-driver is fast asleep as you drive straight past and most of the way to the next one. No, we didn't turn round, we just explained to the marshals at Land's End that we were still in the run, we'd just had a communication problem about the extra stop that wasn't there the previous time I'd done the run.
