Don't worry i got some shots of the recovery I'll keep them quiet if the ones of my launch do!

Very well organised Chris. Was very good fun - nice to give the Osprey a "proper" test! The weather was great - have the sun-burn to prove it.

Once again nice to meet some new people from the forum. (no-fear was that you on the M11?)

Only down side of the day was getting back to the car to find I had a 50 parking fine.

Oh yes does anyone know exactly what distance we did? I was chuffed with my fuel consumption - used just under 40 litres....

I'm glad everybody enjoyed the trip and got back OK. Sorry to hear about your ticket Tim, where did you park?

In closing all I can say is why do Audi not fit proper hand brakes to cars instead of stupid little buttons!

To the left of Chas Newens the other side of the road to where a few people parked their trailers. Should have paid more attention to the signs - I assumed it was non-controlled parking down there too at weekends (as opposed to just sundays).

Any why is the towing eye located in the boot under the spare wheel?! Really useful when you'r car is about to drown in the Thames
