Castle Run - 7th April 2019
We are doing the Castle Run again for the 7th April. 138 miles point to point and about 3hrs and 40 mins driving. This time does not including stopping off for breaks and food
 
We will start off at A) McDonalds Metro Centre (meet 9am to leave before 9.30am), aiming for the ol` Military Road and the A68. From the A68 we will come off for Rothbury, some twists and main turns later its a stop off at Fontburn Reservoir. Looking for Rothbury we will head off up the A697 looking for Lilburn, which is many turns and twists (get the theme here) later a turn left at Chillingham Castle then right at Chatton, brief jaunt up the A1, off at Easington, look for Bamburgh Castle for another break. From here its a short squirt of power for lunch at Seahouses making sure you have change for the car park and when we are full of fish, chips, chicken nuggets and curry sauce we will have a leisurely/enjoyable drive back through Embleton, Warkworth, Amble, A1 and back to D) the same start McDonalds for a run Debrief
 

 
Of course if you cant make this date (which looks to be the best date so far according to the poll) then we will still have other runs to be had through the year.
 
Everyone's input is key to making these events/runs a success
 
To see Octobers Castle run, see below..

That JCW Roadster 🔵
So as you all have seen I've replaced the R56 Cooper S with an absolutely stunning Kite Blue R59 JCW.
I know the R59 is a bit of a Marmite car and the Kite Blue adds to that.. But I dig it! 
 
So here's the start of my build thread. Nothing to report on as of yet and I'll be taking it slow until the warranty runs out but a few small cosmetic mods are on the cards.
 
Really looking forward to the show season this year and praying for a great summer! ☀
