    Hi all, we went for a blast round some local roads, similar to those we might use tomorrow, this afternoon and saw this Aston being recovered from an expensive looking ditch. I think it's a good reminder to have fun tomorrow but stay within sensible road limits too. I for one want everyone to stay on the black stuff and go home smiling - keep any antics for the go karts.

    We stopped to make sure the guys were ok, they were, you can just see the 911 he'd been out playing with in the mirror. It seems a poor road repair on the corner caused the Aston to enter the undergrowth. The roads here today were wet and often slimy with gunk, the white lines are also still slippery. There is a lot of snow on the sides of the roads but none on the road surface. There are plenty of good opportunities to enjoy the cars so just pick your moments and lets all stay safe and enjoy!

    The mrs said I shouldn't take a picture but I did anyway!

    The driver had a sense of humour about it said it was "a spot of poor parking"

    Drove this evening.. perma rain...

    It is quite greasy in places, but some lovely roads, just got here... wherever here is... stopped 5 minutes away...photo.jpg fog rolling in over the hill tops,

    Drive safely

    What is the collective noun for RS3, a gaggle, pod, shoal?

    WHy I bothered cleaning her, lord knows... grimy once again!

    Got here later than hoped, thanks to the muppets who swapped my wheels over... told them about the 235s at the front.... got home and about to get cleaning and I thought the backs looked a little tight in the arches... 235 on the rear 225s on the front... grrr

    So drove back and asked them to swap them, they left the locking nut in the box for the winter wheels... which was now in my garage... 2 hours later problem resolved!

    Normally they're very good.

    ONly dove one the 19" for a week in December when I got the car, forgotten how much stiffer it feels, continentals not my favourite tyres... will live with them this summer and get another 5-6k miles out of them and put something better on next spring...

    Well here now anyway.

    A demain!

    Hi guys, the overflow car park looks like the best place to join in formation. Drive through the entrance and you'll see the signs for the overflow car park B, plenty of room there for a group shot etc.

    Robbie you on your way yet? You didn't say you'd been here before! It seems ewe are well known in these parts. We couldn't help notice that a lot of these little ones running round the place bear a remarkable resemblance to you, they are also slightly off white which just adds to the suspicion!

    Uh oh Robbies been to Wales for a jump again!

    There is a jet wash at the Texaco garage just before the meet point if you want to blast the worst of the dirt off.

    Robbie firstly thank you for organising a superb meet. Great to meet you too, love your sense of humour so thanks for all the chuckles today!

    Mr & Mrs Freeze and Klauster thanks for the social last night in the bar, that was great conversation and a lot of fun. Made the event even better for us we appreciate your good company.

    Rest of the gang, fab to meet you all, put faces to names & share stories.

    GYG Karting what a spectacular little track run by just the best Motorsport obsessed family. We could not have been made more welcome, nothing was too much trouble.

    Quote of the day has to go to Robbie though. When we arrived at GYG there was a collection of various other performance cars. As they returned to their cars we were lining up the RS3's for the group photo. An Evo barked to life with some big revs.

    "Yeah, look what you could have won, ya muppets", Robbiemac. Couldn't put it better myself the Really Special 3 is something else.

    Bluey has returned safely, unintended fast run back; just couldn't be helped (he says?).

    From initial report it's been a FANTASTIC day; Bluey says great weather, great people, great roads, great cars, fabulous noise, yeah! Magic!!

    Can't wait to see the pictures and the movie.

    Bluey now due for a bath. P.s. 45bvtc says "one of his BEST days ever"!
