This year saw the revival of a popular event after a break of 5 years. 74 Cars turned up at Avon Heath Country Park on the day. Starting around 10.00am, the Run took in a route of approximately 64 miles through the western region of The New Forest and the surrounding countryside. There was a halfway stop at The Compasses Inn at Damerham with the route returning back to Avon Heath Country Park around 2.00pm. The meticulous planning and organisation paid off which meant everybody had a thoroughly good day out – we even had glorious sunshine!

Of the 74 starters all but 3 made it to the end – One Stag that unfortunately did not want to start one TR7 that lost a rear spring and a Porsche (TR 8 Substitute) that had a binding front caliper – so much for exotica!
