Wellington Run to Lake Ferry 11th September

Post by flewy » Sat Sep 10, 2011 12:53 pm

If any one is keen and about, we are heading over the hill to Lake Ferry with a group of Triumph TR’s……

Time to dust of the car and get it out. Meeting Haywoods on the Hutt Valley side at 10.30am……drive to Lake Ferry for lunch (world famous fish and chips) and then up to Gladstone.

It will be great to see you there.

Cheers

We had three sevens turn up (all Frasers in the end), but we joined the Triumph Sports Car Club for the run, really awesome bunch of guys you just want to get out in there cars....we had to park away from them at the top of the Rimutaka's, photos and all...

But there seemed to be alot of other people up there all drawn to the Frasers.....nice

Coming up the Rimutakas I was leading Stu and Gil but following the Triumphs, first passing lane I was thinking this is not how Frasers drive this road, so passed them and was so pleased to see in rear view mirror Stu and Gil following......Second passing lane same again, talk about fun....

In the end we got there first.........

Sorry no photos this time of the Triumphs. There was a TR8, TR6, TR3A (which I thought was a TR2 until corrected by owner), a Spitfire and a Saloon car of some discription. Also a couple members of that club travelled in their rice burners so in total quite a few people which was good.
