NSE - Westerly chips - Wednesday 15th July

Postby IanH » Sat Jul 11, 2009 11:01 am

Carrying on the search for the perfect chip (well that's a handy excuse anyway) we shall depart from Duthie Part at 6:30pm sharp in a Westward direction, detours and deviations to be advised on the day.

If you want to meet us further west PM or Email me for meeting points.

We can maybe have a back up plan and cancel at some point in the afternoon if the weather stays wet looking?

Those puddles last night were something else! Just as well there was no oncoming traffic or we may have been driving baths!

Incidentally, I have come to the conclusion that the Kumho tyres on my Mk1 are complete pants in the wet! They don't like being asked to accelerate out of a roundabout or tighter corner. Hopefully the next car will have something more suitable to the UK climate.

Thanks for putting it together Ian. I'll need to go on a diet now after three chip runs in four weeks.

I have put 4 Komho tyres on my Impreza and they are better than the standard fit Michelins especially in the wet.

I would also like to thank everyone on the Ballater run for the friendly welcome we received on the run.
