Huge thanks and congratulations to everyone involved in organising yesterday’s epic day out at The Wellington, Gmund and RPM. I'm already looking forward to the next one!

Had a cracking run across the Woodhead Pass to meet up with 90 Porsche’s in total from across the north of England meeting at the Wellington for breakfast including four 968’s, plenty of 944's and some superb 924's! A thoroughly enjoyable and eventful day overall with a run down the A Roads all the way back culminating in a pub dinner.

It was testing at times for the Rothmans, but some roadside mechanics with basic tools is all you need to get a 924 home in one piece - only four failures in the one day :x: Rear exhaust clamp, starter motor feed, rad fan failed and then just as we parked up for dinner, the light switch had melted its innards so the only way to switch the lights off was to unplug the switch.... I suppose " in sickness and in health" also applies to classics.... :???:

Perhaps the photos and video say it all...

Epic fail at one of the comfort breaks - luckily there was water and plenty of bottles available to top up!

Plenty of cars at the Wellington for breakfast....

This is why we carry alternator belts and bungee cords!

A great day that was .... we started with two cars at the Black Cat roundabout (Nick and myself) and ended up with a convoy by the time we jumped off the A1, with some picked up in Peterborough some at Blythe and some just happened across us on the road. Probably 15 cars by the end. Great effort by all .... superb breakfast and good run out to Gmund and RPM.

Next year, you're gonna need a bigger pub lol

Well done. Great day
