Thanks to Ann, Bob, and Peter for hosting yet another great event.
The Grampian Transport Musuem was excellent and I could happily have spent more time there.
I think the 'do-your-own-thing' day is a great idea as well.
Being pursued by a couple of demented Irishmen around the Scotsburging on the final day was good craic.
:D

My figures: 2266 miles/315litres = 32.70mpg.

Now I just have to sort out which pics are suitable for publication... ;)

Hi Tony, thanks for the positive feedback. It gets harder each year to come up with something new or different. I think the day to do your own thing went down well and gave folks the chance to have a more leisurely day.

Not sure what plans we have for the next one but will catch up with Peter soon to discuss.

Look forward to seeing your photos........well some of them!! 🙈

Ann, wasn't sure about the Saturday before, but really worked well with people doing what they wanted. Dunrobin Castle was great after good drive (well passenger in my case).
Museum was excellent as well.

Hey all, great to meet with new and old. I had a blast with Ricky in his car, not sure if the turbo thing will stick with me as yet, I still enjoy wringing the neck out of engines to much.

Scotsbergring was fun as always Tony.

Anyway appreciate all the time and energy that goes into organising these events and many thanks for that guys, much appreciated.

See you all down the road, and keep safe.

Big thanks to Nathan Mrtwos Lawley for the work to get it back running.
