Can't believe it's only 4 weeks to go. We got 6ins of snow with 4-5 ft drifts blowing across the road off the fields. As it's only 0 degrees I go for a little drive - Bit chilly. Think camping @ Easter next weekend is out the window !

This time last year was tee shirts and roofs down! Snowed albeit lightly today.... still, what falls now won't fall later. Got English Moke out today - short drive, and back into the snug. FUD Moke wouldn't start. Even my investment in a trickle charger wasn't enough to save the (already starting to fail) battery! Fingers crossed for the ACE

Last March was fantastic , then the summer was a complete washout ! So this year March is awful which means we must be in for a brilliant summer ! I live in hope

Hi Steve, I just thawed out from Sunday at Brooklands!.Thanks for your kind offer of help at the forthcoming Ace Cafe event, we should be OK but you're more than welcome to attend & give support. I know Phil, whose bits & pieces you swept up off The Test Hill last year, would appreciate some "Waiter Service", eg bacon sarnies,teas, coffees etc., on the day! Hope to see you there. Regards, Andy Woolhouse.

because we don't have a subscription for the boat, and we come to the 30th Birthday weekend.
We don't come to the Ace café this year :cry:

How good was that ! After a long cold winter - You get one glorious day for the start of summer. Great to see everyone again to shinwag about our cars. Looking forward to 30th W/e - Keep this weather going
P.S. As discussed - next year how about drive through Central London - Mable Arch , Park Lane , Oxford St. + Kings Road (home of the English Moke). Well done & THANKS
