Any excuse to get in the car for a drive;
September: Donnington & SKCC
Donington Kit Car show a couple of weeks back; Good show + on the same weekend as a race day + an excellent F1 car collection on site. This was also the excuse for a run back through central London in the sunshine. I also met a few of the group from the Scotland run earlier in the year.
..then SKCC drive with 40 cars to the Amberley Heritage museum; Convoy from the cafe meet to the museum was great to be a part of, and the weather was with us again for a relaxed wander around - its 80s claim to fame being the location for the external shots for Main Strike Mine in the Bond movie A View to a Kill.
October: GBS Run out
..and last weekend its back up the M11, A1 towards Newark - GBS have organised a Sunday run out. While its a fair way to drive - any excuse for the countryside further north has to be taken;
Missed the worst of the weather and 'toughing it out' in a local B&B with Pub down the road the night before - sorted :)
GBS Write up is here, Facebook album here, and a sample of photos, including me smiling again - don't know what does it! :)
All Zeros but all slightly different depending on the builder's preference:
80 or so miles of country roads and high speed convoy:
Good run, although I did cook the engine slightly and now have some excuses to upgrade the cooling system over the winter.
A few hundred more miles on the clock with the round trip to Nottingham, ODO is now around 5,200 miles since build.
