 This will be the eighth time that Eve my Spitfire has done the event. For my co-driver it will be his first. He is my son and was only 4 years old when I did my first RBRR. Both looking forward to it.

This is the Dolomega, a 78 Sprint with the heart of a 2001 Vauxhall Omega. MOT'd for the first time since 1994 on Sept 1st (the 43rd anniversary of it's DOFR) and with the odometer showing today a whole 77 miles since being returned to the road. Still some snagging to do, but mostly, everything seems to work!

Just washed and waxed my Spitfire! Second RBRR for the car and crew. 350 miles done on rebuilt engine and gearbox, just need to grease the hubs and some other minor stuff (assuming nothing major crops up in next 3 weeks)

Thanks! Yes indeed, any excuse to get some miles on it. Will you be in yours? I'm envious of you doing it with your son, my daughter reckons she wants to have a crack at it but needs to wait 7 years until she can do her test!

Yes hopefully I’ll be in mine unless I cock up changing the brake callipers.

Those seven years will fly by, it only seems a short while ago that my son was 10! He’s just turned 19 now.   Where did those years go!

This will be my 23rd RBRR participation in the trusty 4A and the 16th with Mike Hockaday as co-driver. Our aggregate age on this year's event will be 144 years, will that be the highest of any two-person team I wonder.

Love this picture of Trevor The Triumph.

Team 152 - The Concrete Cows from Milton Keynes are ready to go.

Only problem is, the nearer the date gets, the more I start checking and making alterations, settings and double check things that are not a problem... Is this normal?

After much faffing we have finally decided to use one of our GT6's. It's been dormant after it's last outing to Wales in 2015 on a jolly. After the event I decided to take the 45DCOE's off it, two of which belong on the Macau Spitfire (long story) and replace with 40 DCOE's.
