Terrific weather greeted a small contingent at the Symmons Plains Cars, Bikes and Bands event. A couple of cars also took to the track to display their prowess. Thanks to Danny and Liam Taylor for the pictures. Also check out the News page for a video of Wayne Double's Mark II on the track.
The weather was less than kind, but a good turnout of members met at the Chocolate Factory for an early coffee, then drove to Wynyard to inspect the wonderful Francis Ransley collection of early American cars. Then off to Table Cape to see the tulips, followed by lunch at Ilume at Boat Harbour. A few hardy souls went on to Boat Harbour beach. A great day, in spite of the weather.
About 20 members attended this event, and had a lovely time despite the weather patterns. Some 46 cars of all makes and sizes and their owners competed on the day, you will have heard the song 4 seasons in one day, well that was the weather patterns coming past the fine old Lufra Hotel. Club members competing that were noted was Chris Edwards in his XK140, Ed Newton in his E Type and Glen Clements in his 350CI Daimler. Competing in the display competition was Keith Drew with his 1969 E Type and Gary Williams with his recently acquired 1964 Daimler V8-250. In addition there were quite a few of our members attending as spectators who took the advantage to have a leisurely luncheon in the dining room which overlooked the competing cars lining up for their next run up the hill.
Twelve cars participated in a recent run to the Mole Creek Market. Stopping on the way at the Westbury Maze for coffee, we then strolled around the market while members of the public strolled around our cars. Afterwards, a delicious lunch at the Mole Creek Hotel's 'Tiger Bar'; highly recommended! Thanks to Liam, Howard and Danny for the photos.
