Yeah, but you don't need Super Unleaded in your plastic pig... [emoji14]

Instead of relying on your jerry cans you have these additional options:
Fort William on Thursday.
Kinlochewe on Friday.
Skiach or Contin on Saturday.
Scourie on Sunday (card at pump only).
It's mapped on 99 so yes i do.

Unfortunately we have not managed to get my MR2 to work properly so we will not be coming on the HD with my MR2.

Also Rias MR2 is off the road as we bought the Supra so we will be in the Supra and I think the Fiesta ST so we can both still drive. Hope you all don't mind as it's supposed to be an MR2 event but I know there are a few none MR2's this year so hopefully no one will mind.

I'm gutted to be honest, also I wouldn't mind if someone else lead instead of me on the Sunday, I don't feel as confident in a car I don't know yet.

Damn that's a shame Alan, but I'm sure there will be compensations for you ;)

Been there myself but it's the company we keep that really makes the trip enjoyable and there's nothing like those roads to cut your teeth on a new car.

Well my little plastic rocket is now clean and ready to go, just need to pack a bag and top up the coolant. This is something i really look forward to every year, see you on Wednesday

That's a shame Alan, but hopefully somebody will take over as lead driver on Sunday, if not I will do it.
Best wishes to both of you on Monday :)

I was supposed to be on a plane back from China this morning. Unfortunately I'm stuck on a ship outside Ningbo port due to heavy fog and congestion. I'm really hoping to get back in time but there is a small chance I may not. Will try keep you all updated. :(

If you can please. Need to know whether to expect you at the agreed RV point on Wednesday. :)
