I miss read this...

I thought it said 'My 911 at this year's Yorkshire Pudding Festival.' Stupid I know. Anyone should be able to see it's a 991 model.

Well it amused me anyway smile

Nice car BTW

Just did a double take at this. I too have an identical 996 turbo and I was at the Penderyn distillery just last month. Unfortunately, my turbo is here with me in Dubai and I had a Focus TDCi (quite good) rental. The road onwards to the reservoir is epic if you can dodge the sheep. Thought it was a perfect road for the turbo with loads of long sweepers.
Was blowing an absolute hooley on Saturday, although the car never put a foot wrong. We'd come off the M4 and up through Ogmore Vale, which was good until we hit a section where the wind had stripped all the pine needles off the trees and covered the tarmac with them; from bitter experience mountain biking, I knew these needle bearings were a zero grip scenario.

As for the sheep, there's ditches along the sides of most of the A4061 north of Penderyn, so you had to be ready for the odd, daft sheep to leap out, but mostly it was a perfect drive for the car. Very enjoyable.

Molly - you don't have a 991 GTS in the same colour with a similar plate on do you? I am sure I've seen it in Teesside.

Hang on a minute; it's mine not hers! Molly has a Polo GTI. Her reg is GT13MOL. Fab little car. The orange beastie is mine all mine! I would add that Molly is a quick, safe and very competent driver. wink
