Excellent run out today chaps, really enjoyed it & no break downs (that I'm aware of). Thanks all.

That's easily the second best thing to do on a Sunday morning before 08:00. ;)

Really enjoyed it too and good to meet you all, great route with some varied roads. I'll have a look and see if any of the video I have is any good this evening.

Nice run today guys - glad that I got up for it. Top breakfast too in the glorious sunshine - I'd give it an 8.5/10.
Good to meet new member Oli with his 'blade engined car. Hope that we see you out again soon.

That was a nice run on the return home too David, so thanks for planning that.

No pics - didn't happen.
Come on - I saw the cameras out on the day. The 'short run' boys managed to post up some fantastic pictures. So get your pics out :D

I'll have to post lame phone phone pics I took then.

07:15 meeting point... some garage somewhere in the middle of nowhere. 8 cars raring to go!

The photos look pretty good to me Steve.
Compton Abbas airfield is rather more photogenic than the Chalet :)

We both really enjoyed the run. Thanks to Mark for the outbound route and Mango for the return route.

For any doubters, here are a few of Mrs T's pics:

Or perhaps we just copied last year's identical pics. :lol: Anybody else take any?

So, where are we off to next?
