A great day out!
We arrived at about 10:30, after the rain.
Between 11:00 and 13:00 I had 5 runs up the hill, carrying Mrs J our daughter and her partner...one at a time, of course.
I could get used to hill cliimbing..driving Tarka in manual mode I found I only needed 2md gear for most of the run, dropping to first more than once: even so I found myself catching up cars launched before me.
Daughter and partner had arrived in a TinTop, together with chairs and the paraphernalia for a picnic so at 13:00 we sat in the orchard carpark, under a hot sun. After lunch watched the Plus Six parade before walking round the displays.
Then after a lot of thunder the heavens opened..
In a brief lull we left, at about 3pm. The drive back was, to say the least, interesting.
I sat in Williams Plus Six. Impressive, as spacious as a Plus 8, but a lot more leg room. I didn't like the seats, much preferring the hi-back seats in the Plus 8.
Listening to them on the hill they sound like a modern turbo motor...which they are. I'm sorry, but they are a pale shadow of the naturally aspirated V8 in the Plus 8.
Listen to Tarka off the line at Prescott. https://youtu.be/ZFJweKoI1Lc

If they could make the Plus Six sound like that I could be tempted!!
