Definitely a day for the memory bank today , just 100% enjoyable (company + cars ) from the meet at 9-15am to parting company at 4pm .
Every mile covered with a smile , weather was kind , roads were quiet , cars were faultless :driving: & the ham ,egg & chips at lunch memorable too :oops:
Ive covered the same routes & roads so many times yet still find myself WoWed every time i go on them . Wales & Scotland are both great but Lancashire / Yorkshire has just as much to offer if you know where to go .
Already looking forward to my next outing :thumbsup:

Smacking yourself round the head with a 6 lb wet haddock would be better than that no...?? :o

Going by the smiles on your faces you seem to know how lucky you are having ready access to that part of the world. I am very jealous. :D

It took me over two hours to do the 50 miles to home from the Ace Cafe. :x

Big thanks to Andy (mr Wilks) for dropping me a short notice text message inviting me to what would be my first meet in just over 5 years of membership. :thumbsup:
Absolute pleasure to see Andy and Daz a pair of top drawer gentlemen.
Daz' description of the route and drive echoes my own experience.
The cars performed faultlessly and acquitted themselves with distinction on challenging roads at high revs throughout with Andy setting the pace, definitely in the aggressive :driving: zone. Good man !!
My car has 11.5cm of ground clearance with the Mstache 2 front splitter and I'm happy to report it came back unscathed and thats an achievement over a route that really did make you feel you were on a rollercoaster no exaggeration.
I highly recommend the route and if Andy does one again I would urge you to travel up, down or across for the experience.
Thanks again for a great day out and an exhilirating drive.

My home :)

Love the road down to Newton from Waddington Fell

My mate lives near the Parkers arms ( which dies a fantastic steak) amongst the cars in his barn is a Stratos ... now that really is an epic way to drive the fells

Lancashire truly is Britain’s best kept secret
