Duchy Capri & Classic Ford Club :: A Club Based in the Duchy of Cornwall for the Ford Capri & Classic Fords

Season Premiere Run, Sunday 18th April 2010

Well, we prayed for the sun Gods to shine for us – and they delivered – in spades!

Written by: Tristan Barratt

We all met at The Bird in Hand Pub in Hayle and prepared for our first trip of the year. Tris’s mate Julian turned up with his son Harry in their Focus Millennium, so Harry could see some real cars in action!

After the usual catch up with everyone, we all set off from Hayle, down the A30 to Penzance. Julian had gone ahead of everyone and shot a short video of us all as we drove past Penzance’s main car park on the seafront: BRRRM!

We weaved our way from Penzance across to St Just and arrived at our first destination, Botallack.

After parking, Tris surveyed the access to the cliff front car park and made the executive decision that we would be able to all get down there okay.

The usual photoshoot ensued and we then made our way from Botallack along the breathtaking B3306 towards St Ives.

After arriving at the Balnoon Inn a tad late, we enjoyed a hearty carvery and carried on home from there.

What a great first run of the season – the weather was perfect, the route, though narrow in parts, was one of the most spectacular that we’ve done yet!
