Might nip up to that Neil so long as you don't mind me being in an Abarth, I just have a few family issues at the moment so will have to confirm a bit later.

Attended by 3 Lancias (Delta, Evo II and Beta Coupe) plus a very loud Abarth 595. All driving there in utterly foul weather.

I missed the food. Last weekend I had re-fitted the battery to the car after charging. I used the very handy 8mm spanner in the Lancia tool kit to tighten up the terminal nuts and forgot to put the kit back in the car. I had my first Lancia puncture in anger in 28 years and of course the wheel brace is in the kit! I normally carry a spider brace as well, but that was in the red Coupe. One helpful soul stopped in his Kia SUV, but his brace was too big. He even went home and returned with another, which was too small, so it was a 70 minute wait for the AA...

What did impress was how the Beta's suspension handled a sudden flat at 50 mph. I only knew it had gone because of the noise and a reluctance to accelerate.

No question of where the hole is then!!  But on the plus side, it looks like it was an old (ish) tyre. ;)

Iím disappointed I couldnít have joined you though. As I said in my pm, Iíd already made a commitment for Saturday. For info, I now have an engine in bits on the floor of my garage waiting for some professional work so look forward to more driving involvement next summer.
