Had to drive 60 miles to get some fresh cherries
I will trump that. Had to drive 1,080 miles to the South of France via the Route Napoleon for some fresh bread and something to wash it down. OK, it took two days.

Hi Humph

Looks great

Are you or car in London for the 1pm flypast today?

Planes are well over 40 in flying terms and 60s project - that did occur to me during the Hawkinge and Capel Le Ferne photo line ups. Hopefully no Tupolev flights near us today

Fuente De, and there was a group of 7? AMs at the parador in Baiona a couple of weeks ago going on to Ribadeo. All Gaydon except a DB7VV. And a separate tour of 3 Ferraris and a Porsche. And another of 3 or 4 TVR. All there by coincidence so it seemed. A dozen prewar cars arrived the following night, busy busy

Yes we stayed at Fuente De but ours was a group of 1 Aston, a Ferrari, a Lotus and a Porsche. We did bump into a group of 6 20's/30's (and one replica) Bentley's in Santa Domingo de la Calzada, what a way to tour!

After a full winter rebuild I have mostly just been driving it!!





Constant small upgrades since, the next of which will be bigger arbs and a change of tyres, also some new discs as the 2 piece items I put on warped pretty quick. So will add some cooling when I get a gt4 front splitter with cut outs

Yes, Riaño. Well recognised! Very fast flowing roads around there, very enjoyable.

They must be coming to the end of their tour. We saw them as we were heading off to Le Mans from Plymouth and they were starting a three week tour of Spain and France. All from Devon and Cornwall I think.
