    Cars just had a rinse and towel dry just need to quick detail it then it will be ready for the off.

    Great to meet up with old and new faces. We had a good day and the weather held all day for a full days top down driving. Thanks to all those who attended especially the ones who had travelled far to just participate in more driving.
    A few Photos of the day.

    Thanks to everyone involved especially @Mint and @Mrs Mint for leading our group so well.....no wrong turns, no thinking we'd gone wrong when we hadn't (!!!), nobody lost and a lovely picnic spot (apart from the flies). Sorry we had to leave before the end to visit Ian's dad. :thumbsup:

    Hadn't realised you'd left straight away. Sorry I didn't say bye.

    Just a few pics from me today - there were many cameras around so I'm sure we'll get a full gamut of pictures.
    This was at a brief stop shortly after the cat & fiddle (I think :confused:). A whole lay-by without cars - a great choice Dave :thumbsup:

    Sorry Dave - we were going to hang on until a little later but decided at the comfort break to head off. Would have loved to have stayed until the end but am afraid family duties to do.

    Myself and Jue have had a superb day. Always hard to talk with everyone when there are so many peeps to get around.
    Bill the route was great, really enjoyed it with some great roads and scenery. @Mint you did as always run our group spot on, not one wrong turn all day, thanks mate :thumbsup:. Been brilliant to catch up with @Andy Beard and Sarah. Certainly didn't feel like it had been 11 years!!! Hope you've enjoyed the day and we can twist your arm into joining us again :). Lovely to see everybody, all the regulars and some new faces. Alan and Maxine, was nice to meet you and hopefully your day improved ;).
    Thanks again to all who organised the day and came to join us, especially those who had to travel to the start point. :thumbsup:
