Another great run with the guys from Alfaowner, this time starting in Guildford and taking in the A31, A32, A272, a load of silliness around Romsey, then Christchurch Sainsbury's car park (speed bumps :oops2: ), into the New Forest and finally Beaulieu itself, where there was a hot rod and custom car show.

As my pictures won't be developed for a bit, I've pinched a few pictures from Katie (or Baby278278 as she likes to be called).

Final stop en route to Beaulieu - the car park at Sainsbury's!

The Alfas queuing to get out of Sainsbury's. I was stuck in front of the main entrance for ages... :blushing:

Somehow even without satnav I ended up leading the stragglers into Beaulieu ahead of the lead car (Jon insists it was a satnav error that sent him and the lead pack the wrong way). We had the whole of the back field to ourselves...

I wanted to take this picture, but I couldn't resolve the angles...

I'll put a few hot rod pics up for BBC later. All in all, another great day out. The thing that makes these events special is the driving aspect, although it can be a bit of a challenge going fast on unfamiliar roads - I guess satnav makes it easier to figure out where the road is going and how fast you can go. Fortunately we use walkie-talkies to stay in touch, although at any speed above walking pace I can't hear anything! Note to self - must use headphones next time...
