    Porsche Club GB drive [pics]

    Had a fun day out yesterday on a Porche Club organized drive.  We started at the Midlands Breakfast club held at RAF Cosford and headed into Wales.

    Many thanks go to Gary who organized yet another fantastic drive! A few pics below (Gary I hope you don't mind copying a few of yours too)...

    First stop was in Shropshire's Ironbridge:


    The Longmynd is wide open bushland with passing places offering panoramic landscapes for miles.


    Crossing over the Longmynd offers some great open spaces sometimes a little too open!



     
    The view over the other side as you come back down








    Black seemed a popular colour

    I managed 400 miles, 8 hours driving, and 22mpg average.  Not bad.

    As expected the Rosso Corsa Italian motor stole the show.  Nice work there Clive, I am very envious!!

    A few select pics to add to Gary's.  My car started off spotless and by the end of it was just peppered with bugs.  Another wash and polish tomorrow then!

    Thanks!

    As an 'all-rounder' a modified Turbo is about as good as it gets, however for a few hours blasting about I'd say the stripped out Scud is much more fun.

    I think they'd compliment eachother well.  Something that Stradale I am sure would echo.

    A big procession of 11 black/grey/silver cars certainly NEEDED a bit of colour to it!!

    As for burning it, I think only in a dead straight line could my Turbo keep up.  The weight difference is massive.  The 100-200kph times are about 7.1s for mine and about 7.6s for the Scud.

    It was funny, a sup'ed up Skoda managed to get itself between myself and Clive after coming down the mountain pass.  He had such a smile on his face and rightly so as he was sandwich between over a thousand break horse power!
