We had 2 former ROs at the club night in April - Adrian and Les came along to help keep order and it was great to see them both. Our club nights through the summer months usually involve an hours run out, so our whereabouts will vary during this time. Please check the event calendar on the main club website before travelling. I need volunteers to lead the runs in August and September. The benefit is that you get to choose the start and end points as well as getting to take us out on your favourite roads! Give me a shout if you fancy a go.
The Mad Hatters run in April was a great success, many thanks to Gordon and Carolyn for organising a great route. We set off from Penrith for a run down through Tebay and out to Dent. We then headed down past the Ribblehead viaduct and across to Giggleswick where much artisan cheese was purchased at our tea stop - The Courtyard Dairy near Settle.
As you can see, we had TVRs classic and modern with owners old and young (at heart). All the cars behaved perfectly, as did their drivers. Despite several reminders some neglected to bring appropriate headwear but fortunately I brought some spares! It was a lovely start to the year and really got us in the mood for our forthcoming Scottish adventures.
Bronwen and I are also taking part in a weekend organised by the Sporting Bears Motor Club soon - its a (non-competitive) road rally taking in the Yorkshire Dales and Eastern side of the Lake District, all in aid of the Rainbow Trust. We usually see at least one or two TVRs on this event along with a great selection of classic and performance cars from lesser marques like Porsche, Ferrari and Lotus…
Finally - the region website (tvrcc-northcumbria.co.uk) is starting to fill out nicely with photos and event reports. If you’d like people to be able to see your pride and joy on the site feel free to send me any news and/or pictures and I’ll get them up.
All the best
