Well I am at the Tryp got here at 2.00pm, I didn't do the Mercedes Meuseum but pushed at 10.30am, 270 miles. I am first here and enjoying a Weiss beer before I have a nap. Hope you are all travelling safely Smile

With the morning constitutional completed its time to leave. Had a great time and lovely bunch of people. Spoke to a nice chap who I thought was Charles, but was apparently Joel over dinner. You drive a 993 Turbo- witty chap, didn't see you after that, Riviera Bob a proper gentleman as well.

Anyhoo, safe driving back to you all.

PS. Both Dom Morton and GT4 are real people!

Thanks for a great time all. One to remember for many years to come.

1997 Porsche 993 Targa

PostPosted: Mon May 02, 2016 4:08 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

Back home already. Caught the 14.06.
What can I say? It was epic. Stuart and Dom-what a great idea. Longers and the gang- brilliant. Ian I will send you your satnav.
Christian, you are a top bloke for the help you gave and I really hope you get your new venture off the ground.
Phil did you manage to hit the limiter in sixth? I only managed a top speed of 136mph on the satnav- at least I hope it was mph and that the satnav did not automatically convert to kph on that side of the channel crossing. Steve, Riviera Bob, Brian and Bob, I have not laughed so much in a long long time. Trevor glad we went to Classic Remise. I would have been kicking myself if we hadn't. But to be honest everyone was great company. Hope everyone else enjoyed it as much as I did.

Ps Ian, I spoke the wife and she likes the idea of the French wine route. It will have to be in school holidays though.
Will try and sort some photos. thumbsup

Epic - thanks all for making that such a brilliant trip. Special thanks to Longers and the crew, and all involved!

I'll post up a Rogues Gallery of the car/owner shots I took, plus anything else that seems relevant.

Now home, unpacked and missing the driving already. Having owned my car the best part of three years, I've never driven it quite like that before. Funny how a 993 is happier at 120mph than 70mph!

It really couldn't have gone better - thanks to everyone for making it so memorable and such an event - quite spectacular when you think about how far apart we all live, and how little some of use our cars. Longer and team - it was faultless, so special thanks to you. Christian, get yourself a van and come take car of all our cars

I have plenty of photos and will try and get to them later in the week....

Now, off to find a specialist who can change the oil cooler resister without removing the front PU Rolling Eyes

Stuart, it was Tony (MilSub) who had the petrol tank drama, we live in the Same town. Hopefully he will get back alright.
