That's the downside with fairly loud exhausts, you tend to press the right hand pedal a bit too hard at times :lol:

Love it :drive:

Don't I know it... Drove round to Essex last week, me in the capri and my dad followed in his MR2, both dropped down from 5th into third through the tunnels on the M25 :lol:

I can't resist doing the same every time I drive through one of the Brynglas tunnels on the M4! 8-)

HI All,
Here's my car driving through a tunnel sometime last year.



This is Neil's better video of him and Mark in the much longer Hindhead tunnel.

Well, it wasn't raining when I left home. If I'd known about the weather, I would have stayed in bed! :)

Once it's wet, it's wet, so you may as well keep going.....Queens Square meet looking at the time :)

Yes, then onto the CCI Nationals afterwards. Two shows in one day! :D

Agree about the rain. There's no point in turning around and going back once you've set out.

A good day out :applaud:
I like driving early on a Sunday morning, as the roads are pretty quiet :D Not usually so good on the way home around teatime though :(

Are you going to Singleton Park May 1st? The South Wales XROC usually go to that one.

Looks like a good show :)

Hi Andy,
Yes, I am planning on going to Singleton Park, although it does depend on the weather. As it's held in Swansea it will probably be pouring down. As usual! :lol:
Hopefully there will be a good turn out from the XR boys and girls.

Andrew.

The day after Beaulieu, so hope it's dry for both :)

Pretty sure a few XR's will be there, as they won't do Simply Ford because of it......

:goodluck:
