August 2019 - Some track day action.
Fressingfield Oily Rag Clubs track evening provided another opportunity to give the green Cipher some higher speed action. No car problems encountered on the day, but the long Snetterton track meant that the Reliant engine could really do with some more BHP to make the most of the long uphill straight. However it was a very enjoyable day.
June 2019 - The Fressingfield Oily Rag Club PWR event
The end of June saw another successful running of the Presidents Wife Run, organised as usual by the Fressingfield Oily Rag Club. This year’s Presidents Wife Run was the 17th year that FORC have run this event and it proved as popular as ever. For anyone put off doing this event because it involves Tulip navigation, a comment from my navigator/wife. “This sort of navigation is easy it’s how I would do it normally” and this was her first time doing the PWR.
The day started at Harleston Hockey club, where participants enjoyed a bacon roll before being waved away at around one minute intervals. Using the route book supplied 63 cars meandered across Suffolk and parts of Norfolk hopefully without making too many wrong turns. The slightly cloudy sky provided a little respite from the sunshine and a little over two hours after starting (maybe more depending of the skills of your navigator) the cars started to arrive at Helmingham Hall for the lunch stop. Helmingham Hall dates back to 1480 and provided an ideal location for a picnic, or lunch in the halls tea rooms.
Lunch over, cars soon started setting off on the afternoon route, which would take us across Suffolk to our final destination. On the way I think everyone missed seeing the watertower landmark (yes I know it should be big enough) and hence also missed the right turn. Mistake corrected we all arrived at St Peter's Brewery near Bungay, where some excellent cream scones and tea were served. Everyone I spoke to had a great day. A big thank you to whole FORC team for organising a superb event including the excellent weather.

Fine weather brought out a wide range of cars for the April gathering of the Roman Roadsters car club.
January 2019 - The Roman Roadsters first meeting of the year
The first meeting of the year for the Roman Roadsters car group in Colchester, welcomed sunshine and freezing temperatures. However there was still a good turn out. As usual the Sea Cadets provided refreshments and bacon rolls and fellow petrol heads got the chat about cars and no doubt put the world to rights.
