Seven cars and seven couples enjoyed the spring sunshine and showers this last weekend on our first away trip of 2012 for a mini tour of the New Forest via a nice hotel lunch stop, trip to Beaulieu Motor Museum, overnight stay at the Goodwood Hotel and for some a trip to the Goodwood breakfast meet for pre 1973 cars on a very cold and wet Sunday morning before rounding it off with a Sunday lunch at a country pub deeply embracing its motorsport heritage and connections.
Two Porsche Turbos, a Ferrari 430, an Aston DB9 volante, Maserati Granconvertible, BMW Z4M and as the owner described it, the back up car in an Audi A6 avant took part.
A little video and photomontage will hopefully get uploaded to this site later this month to tempt you to future events.
We are planning another date quite likely to N France in October, date to be agreed so please watch out for this, possibly the 6th or 13th October weekend and maybe going on a Friday, so we have two nights away.
March is now an active time ahead with the ARDS day in a weeks time, RS track day in the best three RS cars they make a couple of weeks later and a Pistonheads Sunday breakfast at Silverstone on 18th.
We are also beginning to think ahead for a larger European trip in summer 2013, even though we haven't yet done the 2012 one, which is now just three months away.
For all those who have already taken part in something, thank you for doing so and for those not yet fully active, it will be good to see you sometime later this year.
