Thanks to all who made it possible. Met some great people and put faces to handles. Sadly, I don't remember too much of the evening shindigs.
Also sadly didn't manage to hit the limiter in sixth on the return journey, simply too much traffic, so 6,400 in top will have to be its max for the time being. Grin
Mart took this pic of the convoy on Sunday morning. Memories are made of this . . . Thumb
Flippin' brilliant . . .!!




That is a fantastic photo of the convoy Thumb Thumb Thumb Grin

What you have captured there, is something of a watershed (no pun) moment for the air-cooled brigade.

I believe Colt had finally found a 993 engine bay with an issue.

The Bosch diagnostics machine identified a Mobil1 sticker that was mounted 0.0036 mm too low.

The owner has been made an example of as a warning to others.

Great trip and thanks to Stuart and Dom for thinking of it and Longers and crew for getting it sorted. Some great hotels and food. Some superb company and did I mention, I quite enjoyed the driving too!!

Classic Remise was great. Getting on at the tunnel slow, and drove home though some quite wet weather. Showed how good it had been while away. Will check miles and mpg later, enjoying looking through pics for now.

Great trip, (tryp) and some superb memories. Thanks!

PS - I've got 'the' cold too.

It would be remiss of me not to document the fact that when Rob (LondonRob) trashed his fan belt at Circuit de Chimay, he was inundated with offers of a spare and people with not only the expertise but the tools to change it in the restaurant car park! All fixed while the rest of us enjoyed lunch.

Deep cleaned the car today after 6 of the most grueling and filthy days it's ever had. It's wearing many little battle scars from the repeated hard use, but I wouldn't trade back. The trip was utterly brilliant, and the car performed faultlessly.

Feels odd not covering 2-400 miles a day at warp speed. Had gotten quite in to it.

This is the 993 thread. A few 'non-beard and sandally types' tagged along but the 2 x kettle groups didn't meet up with them until Saturday night.

Well I hope you all played nicely with each other. Did you have to park separately? When was the dinslaken day? Saturday or Sunday?

We all parked together at The Tryp Hotel for 2 nights (Saturday and Sunday) and at the Dinslaken showground on the Sunday.



The hotel car-park group photos were spoiled by various non-P cars on Saturday but on Sunday night it was virtually all 911uk.comers.

Now that is a true rogues gallery thumbsup

It's funny how you build a mental picture of people for it to be nothing like reality, you all look so........normal Surprised

I hope Zingari has been suitably retrained on 993 pricing Question

Zorro is the good looking one in red.

Thank you everyone for not stealing my ignition key which was left in the ignition lock for the entire trip and thanks to London Rob for actually getting it to fit in the lock at Calais.

I'd like to claim some kind of mechanical genius was involved here but I doubt I'd get away with it.

I will be forever grateful to the offers of fan-belts, tools and time spent to keep my car with the rest of the group. The kind of experience that makes this sort of trip what it is. worship

That lunch in Chimay seems a very long time ago now. Spent the day trying to concentrate on work between bouts of yawning and sneezing and spluttering with highway's cold.
