I suppose Liverpool not being able to complete the season will knock a few quid off the value of Sponges jacket Very Happy

Love the colour combo of both cars & wheels in this photo, especially the JPS black & gold.

Won’t be using the 997 for a while so SORN yesterday for a few months at least, I suspect longer Surprised Surprised

Stay Safe

Yes. Even with the govt telling me what to do around this, as I the days have gone on since Oulton Park, I'd have No choice but to hunker down.
But as the eternal optimist, I can see no better excuse to celebrate the end of CV19, than a get together and a drive out somewhere nice. A full day out. Objectives being:
Great driving roads
A good spot for lunch
Some more good driving roads
Arrive home safe fed and watered.

Yep. And the two greedy Italians. 2021, the roads in Europe will be clogged with people making up for lost time. Good on them. I look forward to having my parents over to enjoy the euro summer.

Looks like we need to formulate a plan.....
breakfast meet somewhere Central, Peaks maybe.... Lunch somewhere on the Coast either East or West and an evening stop for a bite to eat before returning home as you say Safe, fed & watered !

Peaks meet up ? across to the east coast thro Lincoln, take in the horncastle road, drive up the East coast Over the Humber Bridge.... stop off at the Porsche Centre just over the bridge ?? up towards Scarborough? Across the Dales, heading West coast, back in thro Cheshire.

PS have you been to the Cornishon just outside Chester ??
