    Great pics folks. I'm gutted I had to drop out at the last minute with a mechanical issue. I sent my apologies to @billz via @BMBabe. I ended up taking the family for a day out which helped take my mind off it but the little Fire of jealousy burned all day!

    Thanks Tony, funny enough I was just saying to Sara that it had settled nicely :).
    The car feels so much better now mate, we're really chuffed with it and how it looks. I wouldn't have thought keeping the suspension standard would improve it the way it has.
    Thanks again for your hard work yesterday getting the front end sorted, big difference. :thumbsup:

    Looks like a great day.. I have to cut back a lot this year due to some interesting things happening. So I will not be out as much as I would have hoped in the UK. Loved looking at the photos and good to see some went for it through Tissington.

    Thank you billz (and moz) for a really great day out,I ended up doing 352mls and got a headache for my troubles.
    Runnng behind billz was so hard on the nerves every time I got the camera out it couldn't cope with the shaking, so no pics yet but do have some footage on my dash cam, hope to get it downloade.
    Great run but a little too many cyclists for my likeing. Left home at 7am got back at 8.05pm with a tank and a half of fuel used. My Z picked up a stone (I think) in the brakes which made some unusual noises and slowed me down to the point I had to concede to a certain v8 monster and a twin turbo who may i add came past me like I was stood still, the v8 sounded absolutely astonishing.
    Only one slight iffy moment when the front tried to leave the ground over a hump.( which was billz fault for going too fast.)=))
    Great day out, thanks to all.

    Roy.

    A great day out thanks @billz , I got home about 9 o'clock having done 443 miles. Good practice for the euro run, it gave my leg a good test and no problems. There are a lot of great pictures, I didn't get many but will have a look tomorrow. I particularly like the ones of the ford. :thumbsup:
