    You've got sharp eyes!

    Yes, it is a police motorcycle; I don't know if everyone else came back past the cafe, but a little further down the road, between the cafe and the roundabout, there was a mobile site set up waiting for us...

    Hope nobody got caught.

    Richard.

    Great pics Tony, thanks for posting them so swiftly!

    Noony - you're right, its a Testarossa.

    The girl is my 7 year old daughter Sophie who's rapidly becoming Ferrari mad. As we were driving today she said.... "Dad, apart from using that stick thing in the middle and those three pedals, I do know how to drive!"

    Looks like a nice get together! No offense, but 355 rears should not be put on 348's... it looks clusterfawked IMHO.

    I think the challenge grille looks fantastic on the 348. I'd not really appreciated how much it suits until the fourth picture.

    Richard,

    Thanks for becoming the unoffical Fchat phtographer! BTW wots the link to the 75Mb clip you mentioned.

    Andy,
    A million thanks for the ride mate; I really enjoyed it and my undergarments are thankfully devoid of scorchmarks! Kinda made my 4 hour drive to Grimsby seem a little tedious....

    A great way to spen a good Friday morning......

    They were still there at 13.30pm. Gave them a smile, as i am sure they got me.

    Have they got nothing better to do on a Good Friday?? They should be policing egg rolling competitions or something.

    After the meet, I was doing around 60ish mph in a 50mph zone heading back towards London, still on the A24 I think. Went straight passed another mobile unit without realising.... fingers crossed that won't be over their threshold for a fine...


    Great ride out everyone, good to see all again! Steve, your TR sounds brilliant under acceleration. I was following you up a hill section, where all of a sudden you decided to over-take, impressive stuff indeed.


    Cheers for posting the photos guys!
