Down in the paddock at Curborough we found Garry Bunn talking to Paul and Alison, founders of WSCC, also to Stephen, while Derek was busy tickling the car. Supercharged Honda giving 430 bhp and weighing 540kg, you do the maths. 430+540=awesome
Pete Goulding was there in his single seater
Phil Williams was happy to show us his Hayabusa engined car
Stickymint had his bonnet on when we arrived
But not for long, another Hayabusa engined Westfield
guess who arrived next

Back in the parking area next to the track there was 11 Westfields
Now I can introduce the Peak District followers to Pokey, Stuarts car, you met his matching trainers earlier. Parked next to Andy and Sue's, with Bill's in the background

Soon we were ready for the off, but what's this? my passenger has shrunk. Glen was taken off for a Honda Experience Day by Ian, while Ian's daughter, Charlotte, jumped in with me. Meanwhile Andrew had a start issue and received a bump start to get going.
Nigel led us a lovely route past the JCB factory, over Blithfield Reservoir and into Ashbourne without passing a single speed camera. Thank you to Nigel for doing a great job and it was nice for me to follow for a change, it is a lot, lot easier. Lee took lots of photos as we travelled along and we will look forward to the results. Glen rather enjoyed the Honda ride, 'what a car' he said and sends his thanks.
I took the lead in Ashbourne to guide us along the back lanes to Wetton.
We crammed the cars into the car park
and along the lane
It was a table for 18 and this is the only cafe that I know that would accomodate that many people on a sunny Bank Holiday weekend. The service was excellent and so was the food.
Food, did I mention food? that will include cake then and this place knows how to do cake. Which might also have a little bit to do with my choice of location.
Orange and chocolate was popular
Bill broke the trend with the lemon cake, slices only come in one size - huge
It made sense for some of the more Southerly people to turn around here and the rest of us headed North on a super route to the Travellers Rest. Ian exited in style by giving us all a fighter jet sound track as he overtook us to pick up his route home, put it on your bucket list if you have never been overtaken by a Honda engined Westfield. At least he remembered his steering wheel before sitting in the car this time, even though somebody had hidden it, he did walk out of the cafe without it and I was wetting myself waiting for the penny to drop. He tells me revenge is sweet and I must admit that I am rather dreading the repercussions.
On arrival at the Travellers Rest, John found a speck of dust on his car and immediatley tended to it 😀
Bill's clutch cable had broken as he arrived at the pub so it was all hands on deck to try and sort it, to no avail and the RAC was called
Bill's car had to be moved and a driver was called for, as I was the lightest I thought it only right for me to volunteer and I got behind the wheel of the MIGHTY crossflow, while the others pushed.
It was lovely sat outside the pub but soon HMP Barnsley needed it's inmates back so the Yorkshire Terriers departed
John and Jacky
Des and Debs
Johno and his mate
Much later Andy and Sue made tracks too
After a good while later Andrew and us headed East, leaving poor Bill to wait the last bit on his own and board the truck of shame. It has been a very enjoyable day, so varied starting at Curborough with the Speed Series, lots of driving, chatting , eating and even a bit of mechanicals. Best of all we have had a good laugh and that is because you are all great people, thank you for sharing your day with us xxxx
