Our day started bright and early, on a beautiful Sunday morning. Kristen was beaming with excitement to start the day (this was her second club drive and she knew what to expect).
We set off to meet the rest of the crew at Caldermede BP. Much to our delight, the first car that caught our eyes was Lawrence's mint "estoril blue" E46 M3.
Immediately, we were made welcome by Graeme and Jo.
After a coffee and a nice catch up with a mix of new and familiar faces, we each got into our cars for the drive, and what a drive it was! To have a community around you that is equally passionate about cars is such an thrilling feeling. The sound of different engines erupts around us as we carve our way through the 'twisties' to our destination.
A little after an hour later, we had arrived at Stony Creek Go-Karts. As we clambered out of our cars, excitement started to build. Before us was an 800m track, with a total of 15 karts.
We split the group in half, and raced for most of the day. On each team's break, we had the luxury of a snack and lunch bar. It was a great opportunity for the club to get together and exchange conversation with each other. Both Kris and I have always felt so welcomed, and this drive was no exception. Jo has never forgot any of our names, and continues to be a wonderful host.
This was a day to remember, and we couldn't wipe the smiles off our faces as we drove home.
Another great club experience, and it won't be the last.
