MX-5 awarded the highest Honour

The world is a different place when you?re ten years old. Seven cars were parked at the Gullane Games Day, following a quite superb trip around roads in East Lothian that most of us didn?t even know were there. Having left Eskbank, we headed out towards Gifford for the first stop and to wait for Ian who had kindly diverted home to get plastic ties clips for the Club banner.

We criss crossed the area along impossibly twisty, deserted, scenic roads including one over the moors, dodging sheep. Jon later told us that during the Jim Clark Memorial Rally, cars were covering this road at 120 mph. Even allowing for the removal of sheep to a safe place, this struck me as sheer madness. Bizarrely, along a stretch of narrow tarmac, we came across a tea room in the middle of nowhere. It turned out that the Southern Upland Way ran past the back garden and that, like us, wet, tired hill walkers suddenly found a small oasis serving hot drinks and home baking.

On arrival at Gullane, we lined up on a golf course (an act of sacrilege if ever there was one), which is when the two ten year old boys appeared. They looked at the cars and one said to the other :
"Cool cars, aren?t they?" to which the other replied, giving it the highest little boy award possible:
"It would be an honour to be run over by one of these."
