Good day, with good quiet roads. Ended up in Rhyl for dinner what is a bit of a dump (no apologies!) but is was a good drive out and I enjoyed it.

I was joined by Tabs, Beddie and Curley et al.

Great idea John let's get it sorted, i really enjoyed today as it was great to stretch the legs on the Bora on some nice quiet roads and fill my face with great company [Y]

Myself and Gary will get our heads together and try and get a bit more organised as to a route and somewhere a little classier than Ryhl for dinner next time.... [:p]

Derbyshire next time, or maybe Cumbria/North Yorkshire.

And I challenge any one of you to keep up with me on the twistys to Devils Bridge! I've driven/practiced that road at least once a month for the last five years! Normally weekly in the summer just going out killing flies on the front of the car doing a big loop from Barrowford to Devils Bridge then towards Lancaster for a cruise control relaxed back down the M6.

Fantastic on a midweek summers evening at about 9pm as weekends are murder for the traffic. Might blast that midweek inbetween Xmas and new year when the roads will quiet.

Sounds like a good plan that Gary. Matlock/Ashbourne is always a nice run, and towards the Lakes/Trough of Bowland is really nice too...

And I challenge any one of you to keep up with me on the twistys to Devils Bridge!

I'll see that challenge and raise ya a run over the Cat and Fiddle, been practising that one for 14 years now, 11 years on the bikes and the last 3 in the van, hardcore baby....!! [;)][:p]

yeah I work about 8 mines from Rhyl in Bodelwyydan. Some good roads round there... Even better now I have my coilovers on!!

Was driven in and out of work in my mates Westfield on Friday. The roads round there are made for that thing. An awesome experience! Mind you with 210BHP at the wheels and it weighing nothing, it should be!!! And we only found one Porsche 911 and he didn't want to play ;o(

Need to make it along to the North West meets now I'm living in Chester!!
