Had a great day, especially following the Sagaris and Wedge in the morning; such a good soundtrack!

Will get some photos up as soon as I've had a chance to sort through them.

Thanks to all involved, looking forward to the next one!

Finally. Hope you enjoy this small segment. Tried to avoid identifying number plates as I couldn't blank them out.

The video is a bit deceptive as it looks quite slow but I know we were all going fairly on that stretch it's a shame the video wasn't a bit longer as you would have caught Darren and eddy launching from the junction which was a fairly awesome spectacle!!!!!

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who turned out for the Run yesterday thumbup

Apologies to the Norfolk group for my extreme tardiness.
As for my Norfolk route, I'm always on the look out for all manner of feedback. So if you think we can improve anything, then please let me know, My own arrival time notwithstanding paperbagsmile

Mark, you did a cracking job, as per usual so THANK YOU for organising another great Run! The end point was a great alternative, although we never did get the photo in front of the house.
The afternoon route was fantastic, with a very good mix of roads and an entertaining number of "road speed warriors" made it interesting!

Great weather, and wonderful company (both human and automotive) made for a spectacular day. Good to meet a few new people. If you wish to be added to the PHEA Mailing List, send me a PM.
Also, a catch up with the regulars is always a treat.
See you all soon.
The next Event will most likely be a Pub Meet at the end of October. Details to follow smile

I shall be posting my photos soon.

sadly all the video footage I took ended up with either a sunday driver in front, or large sections of 30mph......then the damn memory card filled up when things started getting interesting.

Marks brother has helpfully given me an indication of how soon the head re-build needs to be done.......looks like a winter job. the M3ATY M3 got its front covered by petrol in the morning, & my oil in the afternoon !!! just go sniff the front of that M3, should smell lovely.

Have I missed something? I thought you said at the finish that you managed to keep up and had fun doing so - have we broken Junior??

Well I was going slower than most of the rest I think but I stopped the video before that junction as it would have been possible to read other people's number plates which I didn't think was a good idea on a public forum.

There are things called speed limits......you would have had no trouble keeping up in a nimble Clio, as we obeyed the limits and kept our convoys together.

I knew I was puffing a bit of oil, but didn't really know how bad, marks brother said it was smoking a bit, so as I thought, the valve seals need doing, sooner rather than later. Hardly surprising for a 40year old head, which was sat still in a barn for 10 years.......... So expected the valve seals to have hardened.

But......yes I had great fun, and was chuffed to keep up in the bendies...............it's not broken yet.

A big thank you to Mark for organising the day and the great runs. Also thanks to Anthony for leading at a respectable pace both morning and afternoon runs. The morning run from Milton was particularly enjoyable, with a healthy mix of cars (3xTVR's,2x new M3's, 911 Turbo and me!). Looking forward to another one.
