Drove to Prescott via Taunton and picked up NigelP, roof down all the way causing up the M5 and then via Cheltenham after a pit stop at the Gloucester services for a coffee and p break. Then arrive a Prescott just before 10:00, 130 mile drive, parked up above the paddock and when I got out realised the slope was quite steep
. After a hour wandering about and taking pictures, some great cars there, decided it would be wise to try and move the Aero in case it rained and then we would never get out, going up. The car in front had gone so move forward and up and got half way and then lost traction.
Luckily 2 kind gents offered to push and I made it to the top JUST!
After what felt like a 10 point giggle at the top to avoid the bank infront I gingerly went down and around into the upper paddock and asked very nicely if I could park my car on the flat where I could get out, luckily I was allowed to.
Left mid afternoon and went cross country via Cheltenham and Cirencester and down to Shepton Mallet, roof off, then we had to stop because of impending thunder storm. I chucked it down after I dropped Nigel off and I am pleased to say only 2 small drops of water came in
, and no misting up. Dropped hood back down for last 15 miles.
Just checked the MPG after fill up and averaged 26.69, excellent I think, considering we had a few blasts and overtakes.
Off to the local Pecorama Car show tomorrow, so up early to wash of Rosie in Blue and hopefully will not have rain.
By the way I have discovered she if Jaguar Flag Blue Metallic which was the colours of the Ecurie Eccose race team in the 50's and 60's.
