Cheers fella, awesome, we loved it soon as we first visited South Farm on a cold rainy day and knew it was the venue for us. Great staff and food there too and perfect backdrop for great photos

Thanks fella

She knows what I am like and fully expected that's what I would be doing.
Apparently she could see me cleaning out the Bridal suite upstairs window and probably uttered a few words about me lol

A great weekend putting some miles on the mini in the lovely weather.
Firstly the East anglia interclub mini breakfast meet with Cambs Custom Classics, Norfolk Mini Owners Club, Kings Lynn Mini Owners Club and East Coast Minis. Great turnout with around 70 minis and Arbuckles accommodating over 140 people for breakfast without a hitch.






Also took it to see the father-in-law in the evening and top with some momentum 99 ready for prom duties on thursday.

It ran faultlessly all day and is currently containing all of its fluids, not a drop of oil escaping anywhere

Ran it up to 6500 rpm several times and the new uprated clutch oil seal is doing its job nicely. The new turbo clutch is fully bedded in now and much better than the old standard item. Long may the weather and mini adventures continue

So have been using the mini plenty in this lovely weather we are having, all without a single issue now and not a drop of oil is leaking, happy days

First was prom duties with a few other club members


Arriving at the venue

Successfully delivered


With the weather being so good last night we went for a blast to the pub


Great that everything is working spot on now, only a small tune needed on the rolling road.
Maybe I should fix my golf next!
