I was going to give mine a good scrub today but thought better of it, only down the road from you at Alfreton but it's been light rain on and off all afternoon. See what its like in the morning before I set off to meet up.

Well what can I say! Brilliant day and nice to meet you all. Still unsure who some of you were with regards to your forum user names? The couple with the atlas and the Black M? The guy with the green Z3? I think tomo will be spent cleaning the car! Big thanks to Bill for organising and I look forward to the next one. :)

Cheers
Dave

Big thanks to Bill and Maurice, lots of planning and work goes into these events.
Great day pushed the old girl a bit today keeping up with the big boys but she didn't disgrace
Will not bother cleaning car before next event, looks like i have done a stage through Kielder forest, not a gentle jaunt round Derbyshire :lol:
Bought the Z for days like today, top down most of the time, some of it due to me having a manual roof and not wanting to stop to put the roof up.
Great turn out, Some fantastic roads, the tunnel was a life memory never did see much scenery too busy concentrating on keeping the Z on the road.
Thanks to everybody making it such a great day

Paul
In love with driving again (its the Z effect)

Had a great time today driving in the Peak District, not always on the same cruise as everybody else, but hey ho it made for an interesting time. Really enjoyed meeting old and new forum members so thanks to Bill & Mozza for organizing a great trip.

Roll on the next one - oh that's next week on the West Country Cruise II :)

If it moves (and it shouldn’t): Duct tape. If it doesn’t move (and it should): WD40.

Yep - fantastic day, many thanks to Bill and Maurice for organising it all and to everyone for making us feel welcome into the pack... Loved the jaw dropping faces as we turned pleasant parts of the peaks into Silverstone lol Although I must admit, when we drove past the gun club near Woodhead reservoir I wasn't sure whether we had upset the locals too much or whether I had developed a backfire !!

Hi

Great day out down the back lanes of Derbyshire - many thanks to Maurice and Bill for arranging it. Met some great people and hope to meet them again.

As I was the last car when we set off from Ripley with the "special" walkie talkie (thanks Maurice) it all seemed to go mams up at the first roundabout. Hey ho we picked up a little convoy in Bakewell and set off to Hope and the FANTASTIC loop up Winnats and down the Edale valley and back to Hope for a brew.

Over Snake to Glossop was a steady pace with the normal Sunday drivers (non Z3) out in force but a good lunch and a quick peek at Deano's LS3 powered Z was worth traveling for.
After lunch it all seemed to hang together until Chapel and then Maurice turned left and all others turned right!! at Sparrow pit the lead Z stopped and said" dont follow me, I'm on my way home to Chesterfield". Double testicles - spirited drive over to Longnor for a brew.

Leaving Longnor, Maurice new exactly where he was going to Whetton - nice place Whetton but no tunnel there, plenty of sh*t on the roads, mud and potholes but no tunnel.
Rev limiter wanted to get to a garden centre for some stuff so peeled off back to Steel city.

A great day out with great folks.

Richard and Janet - Black Z3M - Snowmole

if you need any help with run outs, we'd like to help as done many in the past.

There was. We found it just down the road. Maurice nearly gave up, but I persuaded him to spend another 5 minutes searching for it. Worth the search :D .
