Craigs Way Out West Route

by admin on February 05, 2011 in Reports with No Comments

Today saw us head for Alton in Hants, as Craig had promised us a 'Great Road' as a starting point. Neil and I met at Clacketts at 5.50 and trundled around the '25 + a3 getting to the RV in plenty of time, meanwhile across teh Region others were mobilizing - Kenton and Tony hiking across country from further South, Trevor + Nick heading down from Hampton and the Sunrise Crew + Tony H, Craig heading down from Farnham/Guildford way (ish). So who was late - oh yeah, that'll be the bloke that lives closest who smugly revealed that he'd...

Bexhill – and not for the first time either!

by admin on January 23, 2011 in Reports with No Comments

For those of you who haven’t yet visited for a brekkie I’d recommend the Sovereign Cafe, it’s right on the promenade - but I’m getting ahead of myself. We’ve been a few times before and the call went out for a run down there. Neil was kind enough to let me ‘passenger’ after I decided to play ‘chicken’ with a kerb on a roundabout - muppet! We had a cracking run down to Hurst Green where a few other SKCC’ers were lying in wait....the gang consisted of Neil, Tony B, Bryan, Richard  and a ‘newbie’ Graham. We trotted off to...

Tiger Racing at Brands Hatch and a Blat – Heaven!

by admin on November 07, 2010 in Reports with No Comments

How come simple plans go wrong/? I’ll tell you - ‘cos people muck them up! So a Group of us decided that we’d have a play in the Kent countryside and Linda decided that she fancied getting involved . We met at the allotted hour and waited and watched as she sailed by, no problem we thought she’ll go round the roundabout and come back - err no! So off we set enjoying the company of: Nigel, Tony, Kev, Bryan, Matt, Neil, Joe....with a bit of telephone tag we managed to get Linda to a second meet point and once...

Southern Kit Car Visit Brooklands

by admin on October 31, 2010 in Reports with No Comments

Neil first threw the idea out there, how about a blat  to Brooklands? Mmmm seems like a good idea. I mean what could be better, a place that few of us had ever visited in the tin top let alone the ‘kits’ AND a blat. Perfect. Well except for me as the Tiger was in dry dock having a tweak. So Rob and I were the ‘outsiders of the Group in our hairdressers cabriolets! But I get ahead of myself! We arranged a meet at Newlands Corner, a handy place on the North Downs between Guildford and Shere overlooking the...

Le Blat Part Deux

by admin on September 11, 2010 in Reports with No Comments

Well it seldom pays to return to the scene of a crime.........but then driving French roads is far from being a crime ( unless you count the fact that they are so smooth you just want to use the loud pedal a bit too much )......After Le Blat a few folks had expressed an interest to get involved having missed out for one reason for another. As per...I worked out a route that would take us on a circular 160 mile trip around the Pas De Calais. If you think that Northern France is boring I suggest that you ignore...

Blat to East Anglia

by admin on September 05, 2010 in Reports with No Comments

For some time I’d hankered on exploring North of the Water, so we formed a plan and a route, simplicty itself: Meet a few SKCC’ers at Lakeside and head to Maldon to play on the remnants of an old airstrip ( long straight unused road) and then head Northwards to pick up Alan - an Essex Tiger owner who fancied joining us for a days’s what happend. No sooner had we set off from the initial meet than I got a call from Tony who had missed the Green Traffic Light ' err we'll be about 10 minutes or...

Southways Run and Meet

by admin on September 05, 2010 in Reports with No Comments

For those that don’t know Tiger sold the rights and moulds for the Cat and Supercat to a South Coast Company called Southways. The owners of Southways have been involved with kits for some while, turning a passion for building their own into a business. We decided to help support their Open Morning, and a good job too - because unfortunately without us it would have been very quiet down there! Let’s hope they can make a good go of the business as they are really decent chaps. There’s nothing better than hatching a complicated plan for a route and...

Surrey Run with a healthy Brekkie (of course)

by admin on August 08, 2010 in Reports with No Comments

So nothing too complicated then?? Nah, just a few meet points to pick up folks from various parts of the compass and a trot down to the Chalet Cafe - ............ Well until yesterday the numbers were sitting at around 10 cars in total, a number of chaps decided last minute to get involved, some from here and also from the Caterham Club. The run for all of us ended up being 2 runs - to whatever start point and then the run en-masse and for a few of us 3 runs! James and I popped down to Buck Barn...

A quiet Blat in France

by admin on June 05, 2010 in Reports with No Comments

Nigel and I were so taken by Le Blat that we talked about heading back there for a quieter more low key day. In truth the cost was so reasonable it was rude not to. With Tony B and Bryan accompanying us we headed off............ we managed 180 miles over there, arriving a little before 11 and leaving at 8.30. A bargain day out for the cost of the ferry. We did 4 stages, a coffee at Desvres, Lunch at Berck a seaside Town below Le Touquet ( where the Moules proved a popular choice ) - where we we...
