Who would be up for an Open Day Run Out

Suggested route, leave GBS head out on the back road from Ollerton to Newark, pick up the A46 towards Leicester, exit at Nottingham and follow the Melton Mowbray road, at Melton take the B676 to Corby Glen and then take the B1176 to Grantham finishing at the Fox & Hounds Pub in Old Somerby for a beverage.

As a thought, if there are any potential future Zero owners that want a passenger ride for the run we can offer it and thier respective partners could simply meet us at the pub before departing for home???

Timings can be flexible and to suit, run would be around 60 miles ish. Would also be good to have some cars with cameras running to do a video (Ruth bring your laptop to take the footage from each car)?

I think it would be a great opportunity to promote our hobby / community / cars!!!!

Hi John,

Sounds good, I was going to mention a run out after the Open Day as some people have mentioned it! Im sure some of the GBS guys will join in one of our demonstrators.....
Think its going to be a very busy day, wonder how many GBS Zero's we can get in the car park this year!?

We look forward to seeing you all on Saturday.

I will be there with my mate in his Westy but as the finish of the run is so far North of us, I will give that a miss

Well that was fun!!!

Left GBS at around 14:30 with three others Micky & Douglas, Andy and Laurence of GBS fame! Didn't get off to the best start as we encountered two police bikes (rather too quickly) who were doing a very steady 50 / 60 almost all the way to Newark!!

Joined the A46 for a short while where Andy demonstrated the Super Charger attached to his Zetec rather well and depressingly for me! Cry

Left for the A607 to Melton and then through town picking up the fabled B676 (my playground), where were you Micky?? Keep up. Finally the B1176 to Grantham and the pub at Old Somerby (Fox & Hounds) where it appears Andy had been trying a little too hard and had smashed his nosecone and intercooler. Embarassed

Some light refreshment and off we all went in our respective directions, Andy and I took the opportunity for one last play back for fuel where I encountered two bikers. "Are you guys going back down the B676?" "The Melton road?" came the reply "Yes, fancy a play?" "Yeah why not" Much rubbing of hands together in glee having found a couple of new play mates!! "better stick £5 in the tank then" Off we went, the first guy gave up after two miles and the second gave a more concerted effort!!! Upon arrival in Melton he was shaking nervously and extremely curious as to what was powering such a quick car CoolLaughCool

All in all a great afternoon of playing!!

Thanks go to all who got involved
