well, i am pleased to say that the 1st Gloucestershire mini meet and drive out went really well. there was only 4 people/cars but you have to start somewhere
the attendees were:
dboy in the rat car - sorry, the red GR
motorhead and his wife in the while version R
ricko in the silver GPX
and my wife and me in the silver GX.
we started off the meet in a layby - now a bus stop! - by the dog at over (we'll have to find a better meeting place next time) and then dboy led us on a drive out down to Tintern abbey via some really great back roads around chepstow.
motorhead, ricko and dboy:
after stopping for a coffee at titern abbey cafe, we decided to try an artistic photoshoot.
unfortunately, i had got my camera ready.......then left it at home so my pics are taken with my phone
then i lead a drive from titnern to monmouth and we had 2 blasts through the monmouth tunnels (2nd gear foot to the floor reverberating from the tunnel walls) before driving back through the forest to the dog at over.
there's always one:
but we did like the old pump up a tyre whilst rolling a cigarette trick:
thanks to all that attended.......we had a great day.
there was a mix of some nice smooth fast flowing B roads and some nice winding lanes that really put the cars and drivers through their paces.
i am actually very surprised at how well the fto grips the roads, especially in the wet during the little shower in chepstow.
it was nice to meet you all and, as i think we all agreed at the end, this was the 1st of a regular meet / drive.
when does everyone want to hold the next meet?
