Excellent stuff  :D :D
I feel a challenge coming on : Just how many C5's can you ' legally ' fit in / on an Estima  :D :D

We made it to Andy's place in one piece with no drama - the bike rack held firm and the bodyshell was delivered in as scruffy a condition as when it left, just covered in sooty diesel deposits  ::)

Todays run was absolutely superb - excellent weather and a brilliant route. First off though, a very big thank you to Andy and his family for looking after us. Excellent bacon butties mate  ;)

No exploding inner tubes this time, sum total of "incidents" was fairly minor - one slow puncture, a broken brake cable and a chain tensioner falling off. Plus Steve managed to eject his boot a couple of times  ;D

Ray wasn't too happy with his batteries which seemed to perform quite badly , but the Halfords leisure battery fitted to "Moneypit" performed surprisingly well - I thought it was on its way out but seems to have recovered a little.   

Overall an excellent day out - really good fun  :D 8)

Some pictures from the day;


















We also managed a visit to the "tin tabernacle" ;

A quick stop for ice creams gave us the chance to chat to a few people who gathered round to look at the C5's;







Lastly, my emergency stop (to avoid Steves discarded boot) left its mark on the road surface  :o;

Thanks Andy for a great day out.
My C5 did not behave itself this time out,and I have warned it,that if it was not carefull,I will use another on the next event!
PS,he Queen had a quick spin in my C5 when you were not looking,and she loved it,so preparing one for her now!
Well she said she was the Queen"what does she look like"?

Looks like you all had a good day out. Some great pics, especially the one with the rubber dripping off the tyre onto the road  ;D
