Duchy Capri Club Season Premiere Car Run - Sunday 29th April 2007
From Fraddon to Bude - via Davidstow on Bodmin Moor
Written by: Tristan Barratt
Mark, Gary, Tris , Dave, Steve, Martin, Carl and Barry met at Chiverton, then we carried on in convoy to the arranged meet point at Fraddon, where we met Sabrina, George, Paul & Marlene, Nigel W, Nigel B and new member Mike in a gorgeous 3.0 litre Ghia.
From there we went in convoy up to Davidstow (via a "very scenic" diversion round Camelford) where Tris wanted to take some pictures of everybody and their cars for the website.
After what seemed like hours, we left and carried onto Bude, parking in the main car park and indulging in a very welcome roast dinner.
From there, we regrouped in the car park to talk Capri for a while, before making our way back home.
The good journey back was only marred by some stupid old numpty in a diesel Fiesta who seemed hellbent on overtaking everything on the roads that day and pushing his way in and out of the convoy.
He achieved a lot too - apparently Gary caught up with him at Chiverton Cross and hopefully wupped his crinkly ass (up to the national speed limit) on the bypass...
