Anyway, Colin and his better half Pat invited all the Dorset WSCCers plus some of their Lotus and Westfield owning friends down to Dorset for a couple blats and a BBQ. Some of the crew made a weekend of it and booked B&Bs but as my 3 teenage children needed to be parented Tricia and I were limited to the primary day on Saturday. Unfortunately parenting duties expanded which meant that Tricia had to stay at home so I left at 07:50 to meet up with Malcolm, Dale, Brian and Mrs Brian at the Honiton services on the A30. As it's only 2 months and 1 day since my myocardial infarction I declined the bacon roll enjoyed by the others and limited myself to a polystyrene cup of tea. Once refreshed we headed off to Dawlish to fight with the Bank Holiday and Air Display traffic on our way to Colin's arriving just before 10:00. Pat was manning the kettle and dispensed teas and coffees as the posse assembled on the drive - eventually 6 Westfields, a Lotus 7 and Elise. After Pat had handed out the laminated pace notes (where's Tricia?) and the photographs, we headed off - Westfield style - to the fuel station! and then off to the greater Devon.

Once refreshed, fresh crab sandwich and Devon ice cream for me, we headed East through the middle of Dartmoor.

Many thanks to Colin & Pat for organising today. I covered over 200 very enjoyable miles
