Unfortunately it was LHD which restricted overtaking sometimes, been so low to the road I had to rely on Gills word to go when stuck behind larger vehicles, and she would take no chances!

The Drive it Day run was on the 26th April, again we did not have brilliant weather, Gill and I had planned the run from Thickthorn Services near Norwich to a pub near Swaffham for Sunday Lunch. Again we went the long way round, via Bawburgh, Ringland Hills, Felthorpe, Swannington, Cawston, Saxthorpe, Briston, Melton Constable, Ryburgh, Brisley, Mileham, and finishing in Necton, in other words in a big circle. We then followed this with a quick run to a members fine house near Stoke Ferry.

The TR7 is still in my friends barn, all welding is now complete, though there was much more than I thought needed, it is back together again and the underside has been under-sealed and wax-oiled, however it now needs a full paint job. Won't be this year I fear.

We are now using the MG TF for shows and runs as well as been a daily driver.
Sunday the 17th of May we took part in the Iceni MG Owners Club Boadicea Run, Starting as usual from Rougham near Bury St Edmund's. We had a few Phoenix CVC members with us. The run on a fine sunny day went around Suffolk and into Essex with a halfway stop at Lavenham, before loads more country lanes back to Bury, approx 100 miles in length. Who says MG,s don't do anything.
Well worth a visit to this interesting and free memorial to the USAF in WWII.http://www.rougham.org/
There are some wonderful houses on the route and nice villages and towns to stop in such as Kentford, Gazeley, Whepstead, Long Melford, Claire, Cavendish. We stopped for a very nice snack in the Horseshoes Inn near Cockfield. The Horseshoes Inn
Back at the Control Tower at Rougham we had a coffee and cakes in the sun, an added attraction on the airfield was the Large Model Flying Club Show with some excellent and quite large models flying around, including jet propelled ones. We made for home around 4.30. A good day out.
