Just got home after a long day. Well done for a great route to Mino and Gavin, thanks.
Lunch was good but light!(where was the potatoes!!!!!!!!!!)

I think it may have been a tad ambitious to squeeze in so many great roads in the day as people were tired at Dumblane. Ok for me as 15mins home, some people will be very late.

4th Jun 2006 21:28 :: Gordon & Janice

We got in about 21.00 not too late.

Fantastic day!!!! (and a great run all the way back to Rosyth)

Many thanks to all the organisers.

See you all Thurs/Friday.

Great day out, fantastic roads and we were lucky with the weather.  302 miles door to door, good job I set the video up for Top Gear!!!

4th Jun 2006 22:20 :: Ronnie
What a great day. Dry, fairly warm, top down and I got to give the green demon the wellie. Thanks Mino and Gavin for all the effort. I'm knackered though but happy.

Thanks to Gavin and Mino for a great day, some superb roads, could have made two runs out of them all. Thanks to Stevie for being tail ender to red group. Big thanks to all that donated raffle prizes and to Tom, Gordon and Ross for assisting with the ticket folding.

Hi Everyone!!!
A big Thank You to the organisers whom I think are Gavin & Mino and also to Douglas and his wife for keeping us on the correct route!!!!  We had a great time!!

Probably the most fun I've ever a car...alone!!
It was a very 'spirited' drive even if there wasn't officially a 'spirited' group!  Don't think I've ever had my car move about its three axes so much (sideways/nose up/nose down!!), certainly never had it airborne!!  Of course it was all safe a within the limits of safety but what awesome fun!!!
The run home from Dunblane to Rosyth with Tom, Mino and Gavin was...erm...spirited too!!
Thanks for a brilliant day out, days like that were the reason I bought the car!

5th Jun 2006 09:21 :: Jim & Alison

How was I that knackered when I didn't drive? =8-0

Great day - thanks to Mino & Gavin

6th Jun 2006 02:17 :: June
Had a fab time and some of the roads felt like being on a rollercoaster!! ok so that was MY driving to blame for that :-)
Thanks for cramming so many twisties & bendies into one run!

6th Jun 2006 02:21 :: chic and heather
Excellent run Gavin/Mino and a good lunch stop as well

6th Jun 2006 04:22 :: Nigel & Stella
Ditto, ditto and ditto!  Sorry we had to split from the group a little early, but it was a great day out, just love that whole area.  Discovered new roads too.  Thanks Mino and Gavin for all your hard work.

6th Jun 2006 04:55 :: Fiona
Congratulations to Gavin and Mino for organising the day.  I am however disappointed to say that I will be seriously considering any future runs.  I wouldn't consider myself a slow driver, however at times I felt extremely uncomfortable with the excessive speed of the driving on unknown roads.  I found it quite reckless in places.  Also, the leading three cars in the red group managed to lose sight of the other 7 cars behind them which I feel was extremely inconsiderate and unnecessary had they followed the driving rules.  Unfortunately for me my day was ruined by these points.

6th Jun 2006 05:11 :: Norrie and Ross
A great big thanks to everyone at the club for making Ross and I so welcome. I thoroughly enjoyed the run through "The Big County" of my home town and gave me a great opportunity to try out our 5. The car did not disappoint nor did the whole event.Well done to Gavin and Mino for all their efforts. Ross enjoyed a wee taste of port for his birthday as did I.

6th Jun 2006 12:58 :: Douglas
Fiona, My sincere apololgies to you and Craig, I have sent you an e-mail and will contact you today.

7th Jun 2006 02:01 :: Don
Looks like we missed a great day. Just back from France with the MX5, did 2,200 miles in 8 days. Hope to get to  the track night, depending on when I finish work.
