Looks like Spring has finally sprung and it's time to get the guns out. Glorious morning here with the orb in full glory. I imagine the pimple paparazzi will be in full effect today snapping all those unique motors driving up and down the high street.
I'll be giving mine a bath today at some point in prep for Gawsworth on Monday. Enjoy the weekend team Thumb

Had my first proper drive in nice weather today, I bought her late last year and she has been squirrelled away during the winter months, then the MOT lapsed in March but I left it as the weather was still rubbish, but I finally got my arse in gear last week and booked her in. She sailed through on Friday with a couple of notes, rear discs not looking their best and rear tuning forks slight play. I knew the discs looked a bit horrid so they on the list, suspension is a long term project to improve on the car anyway, the previous owner had recently fitted some coil overs, but they not a premium brand so in time I will look at the whole setup.
Anyway as the better half was taking her staff out for lunch and drinks I thought it would be rude not to have some “Me” time 😉 - (no not that me time!!) but P-car time👍 So a good drive to clear the cobwebs away, love the feel of the car! it’s great on the turn in on the twisty bits, really inspires confidence, reasonably high speed duel carriageway driving feels a little vague, but the A-11 leading to Snetterton is grooved/ tramlines from trucks and tons of overbanding/repairs so unsure if it was just the quality of the road plus only 1/4 tank of fuel (thoughts / observations welcomed)
Anyway I ended up popping along to my local track just to watch a test session. Happy days and loving the 996 compared to the 997 TT it feels so nimble, obviously not as quick but that is not as important as it used to be.
Loving the weather 👍

Lovely car mate. I'm just sitting here, bi folds open post impromtu bbq with my neighbour reading through today's posts from everyone, great catchup with Zingari for an afternoon coffee. It was cars galore although no pics.
Tomorrow should yield quite a collection at Gasworth Hall. All in all this Bank Holiday is turning out to be a cracker
They're calling tomorrow to be the pick of the days so if the sun's out......guns out time again Thumb

I’ve been swanning around London today (24,204 steps according to my phone, 54,000 according to my feet) and plenty of exotica on display but its the crazy cyclists that entertain the most Rolling Eyes
