The B1094 Upwell Road and the B1096 Ramsey Road will do for starters :twisted: or if I'm feeling like being a Tinker the B1166 Throckenholt Road has a number of double apex 'liveners' :lol:

Ah, so there was a convoy drive planned, shame it didn't go ahead as a good few people felt that was something missing from Saturday.

Where you around on Saturday Franklin, I didn't spot you at all. Despite my best efforts to sell your Activa to someone on the Saturday, I seemed to have failed :lol:

Roll on the ICCCR 8-)

For a change, that is only 60 miles from my house, so nice and local for me. Mind 5 days x 120 miles is a bit more than my usual average to a CCC event :lol:

:lol: ...don't forget the B1050 Chatteris Road - a tad futher afield but not too far!

I was there n Saturday for all of about 3 minutes! Dad and I popped on as we went to the barn first at about 11.30 and it was absolutely pouring down. I moved my Visa 14TRS from being Dom's tent's windbreak so it was in the lineup and then we went home. Dad was busy for rest of the day and as the weather didn't impove until later we decided not to pop down in the end.

Strangley enough, it turns out that that chap lives only about 600 yards away around the corner yet dad and I have never seen his XM before - quite amazing. In the end he was very interested in the C3 that we came down in which is actually my mum's car! But if there's a profit dad'll sell it! :lol: :roll:

Yes there are plenty of decent roads in the area if you know where to look, if anything that area has a wider variety of roads than most other areas around the country.

I would just like to add my thanks to Tim for organising this years event, it worked very well.

The parking signs worked very well and that was something lacking from the rally in 2010...although the Xm's did seem to migrate together as if by magnetism..

Strange bunch those XM drivers.
