Sunday -Drive it Day

Sunday was FBHVC National Drive It Day when classic car owners are expected out in force. For Club Triumph Norfolk we organised a route from Caistor St Edmunds, down to Filby Broad, then to Caister on Sea and along the old coast road, through Hemsby, Sea Palling, Waxham, and Happisburgh, lovely winding roads, through pretty villages to the Lighthouse Inn at Walcott for drinks.

Lined up at Caister Hall Hotel.

Less a TR6 at the Lighthouse Inn.

3 Early Rovers.

We then carried on through Bacton, Trimingham, Mundesley, Sidestrand and Overstrand with nice views over the coast, passed through Cromer, then on to Sheringham. Here we parked up and strolled into town for very welcome Fish and Chips and later ice creams.
11 Triumphs turned out on the day, however we lost a TR6 with ignition problems early on. The weather was perfect, sun all day with a slight breeze, perfect for the convertibles. Thanks to all who turned up.

All in a good day, no one got lost and only 1 lost to mechanical gremlins.
Along the coast road we saw a convoy of Moggy Minors, a group of MG's and a small group of early Rover's, then whilst heading home spotted various other classic cars in 1's and 2's making the most of Drive it Day.
