First drive of the year.

Postby Caprifan Rob » Sun Apr 01, 2018 3:06 pm

Haven't had much opportunity to drive the Capri lately, it was last on the road in October, so got up early this morning, threw some tax on it & blew away the cobwebs :) .
4 years ago today, I was late for a family dinner having just become the new owner of said Capri much to my wife's surprise. Wasn't going to be late for this one, so was out before the sun was fully up, didn't realise how cold it was though, still roads were quiet & fun was had :D

Note snow on mountain in background, told you it was cold..

Goodness me that road looks great Rob, looking at it just makes you want to fly up it.

You'd better not let on where that fantastic road is or next time you drive there it will be clogged up with Capris! :)

It's a great road Paul, goes on for miles, very popular with bikers & car guys alike. Always something great to see ( apart from the scenery ) , plenty of Porsches there on Sunday.

That sounds like a plan Andrew, what a sight that would be :D .
Corey took part in the Pure Rally Easter run which went from London to Cardiff to Liverpool then Edinburgh & even they took in these roads as part of the run, passing through there on Friday.
