Back home from another great event. Although we had lots and lots of rain it was a good run in the GT6. Car behaved very well except for a leaky windscreen seal.

Even Mikey B made it all the way round without any issues!  



1969 2.5 PI (Soon going to be a 2.5PIE, EFI conversion under construction)
1971 GT6 mk3 (still going strong)
2007 Volvo V70 2.5T (After many years, again owner of a Swedish Turbo Brick)
2001 Audi A2 (replacement of the old Mini Cooper, and the total opposite. Will never ever rust but not exciting to drive)

Survivor of 10CR05, LCC06, RBRR06, 10CR07, LCC09, 10CR11' 10CR13 RBRR14 and many many Dutch nightrallies. http://dutchtriumph.blogspot.com/

No, more chance of seeing none, as statistically it only rains 6% of the time over here

Well, to all of you who didn't come, you missed a good one!  Thanks to Theo, Rene and the organisers!

At several locations, we felt that we were on a mini 10CR with hairpins galore. There were some great fast flowing sections too and the spaghetti (and price!) were far superior to that which I had eaten previously in Italy!  With beer at just 2 Euro a glass at the finish, that also went down better than some on a previous European journey!    

The whole trip itself went smoothly if rather quickly, (apart from nearly running out of fuel 3/4 of the way along the route!  We even found time to stop in Kent on the way home to sqeeze an Ebay purchase of 5 Rev's/tyres in the back of the Stag!

Finally a big thanks to Roger for looking after us so well over the weekend, we will definitely try that breakfast stop again -  and Ivi is very happy with the Vlaai  


Oh and yes, it did rain a little . . . . . . . .

After 25 years we are looking at a slightly different format for next year.
So a slight change of the roadbook and maybe a new start location ...




1976 TR7 FHC (bought for its wheels in 2013, currently undergoing some TLC ...)
1980 TR7 DHC (a.k.a. Kermette, my first car bought in 1988 )
1981 TR7 FHC (Sprint engined, a.k.a. 't Kreng, bought as a parts donor in 1994, the rest is history as they say)

Thanks to Rene and Theo and other organisers for a great event. It was a really nice route through Belgium.
Looking forward to next year (hopefully our TR7 will make it to the finish that time).
Here are some pictures I took.
