  1. Yes, the vale were DQ’d. When they got to the line, halted, pipes down, stand at ease, then stood to attention, pipes up etc… a drum burst. After the stand at ease” command

  2. I wonder who stood the drummer down? did they just fall out? or who told them to step aside…big mistake as it meant they didnt get any championship points and handed inveraray a pre-qualifier place for the worlds……bad mistake.
