Fas74C? RedAlfa4C? Lextsy? 25trbo? Coffee76911? Any others?
.... The last time Maria went out of the garage was the 24th August last year for the drive to the Hunter with you and the group....

Hi RedAlf4C,

please let Maria know that the great outdoors is not something to be frightened of.

We are very sympathetic to agoraphobic 4C's and she will be in good company if you are able to join us.

I tried work once and didn't like it - driving a 4C with Mates is a much better choice in the work/life balance equation.

Cheers,

Alf.

Jim we have another 4c coming to the party.
Do you recall Diego from the Concorso last year with the red launch edition. He is not a forum member but advised me when we have a run to let him know and he is a definite starter.
Thanks, Mark. Diego, I think he’s a traffic lawyer if I remember correctly. Could be a helpful addition. ;) 😄(y)

It looks like the Bar and Grill at Rydges Mt Panorama is still closed for lunch, guys. I’ll call back later in the week to see if things change, though with the current scare in Victoria and the Crossroads Pub going on, it seems unlikely. I’ll have to look elsewhere. Anyone have the name of any eatery you’d like to recommend? Something outdoors is, I think, preferred given the current situation. There’s always the ‘bring your own picnic lunch‘ option too.

It’d be nice to have you along, Aussie4cnut. Leaving from Richmond airbase then heading out Oberon way then back to Bathurst. Going south to Goulburn and Taralga then north is bit far with the shorter days of winter. You could meet us at Bumaroo Campground/Abercrombie River if you’re already down that way. Will probably be there at around 10:45/11AM on the day.

With clever use of decoys, no worries...In our history of group drives there have been plenty of Camrys out there willing to sacrifice themselves it seems....Seriously though, if you do drive with a view to not being the wood duck, you’ll survive.

Hi Guys, I’ve just read that due to the cluster of COVID infections spreading from the Crossroads Hotel and the Victorian outbreak, regional clubs have banned Sydney residents from entering, notably in Bathurst. I’m thinking it would be the more responsible option if we brought along our own picnic lunches and blankets and found a nice patch of grass somewhere around the circuit to sit. Toilets should be open up at McPhillamy overlooking Skyline or there’s a lovely area of grass at the Chase from where my son and I view the 12 Hour. It might be Rydges property so there could be an issue.
Bans might be extended so it’s better to be prepared and avoid mingling unnecessarily in busy areas of the town.

If everyone turns up we have 11 4Cs on the drive. It’d be great to make it an even dozen. Any other Sydneysiders interested?
With such a large group of 4Cs we’ll hardly go unnoticed so I ask that we all drive responsibly and courteously as representatives of the marque. I have trouble reminding myself at times that the rhythm of the 4C is considerably quicker than that of the majority of cars we meet on the road.

Don’t want too many. 12 is enough I think plus the couple of extras (Jag and Maser). As it’s not a club run, I’m relying on everyone being responsible. What I don’t want is something happening and the good ‘ole Aussie pass time of blaming someone else ie ME, if things go awry. I trust our known crew and with a few extras in tow can be reasonably sure there will be enough people around to show a good example to the others. Trying to take the duty of care route as much as I can for the benefit of everyone. I’m pretty sure you understand.

Just don’t bring champagne as you will have a pleasant surprise upon opening it. Warning !!! Pack your lunch nice and secure. Lol!

Jim your not losing your nerve hitting 60 I hope🤣
Not me. There a few favourite spots along the way for HWY Patrols to sit. Don’t want anyone getting caught doing a quick overtake then getting nabbed. It can happen all too easily. Somebody does something silly, we all get pulled over and they have a field day writing defect notices on all the cars because to their ears our 4Cs are too noisy. It becomes more than a little inconvenient. If you’ve ever been with a group of bikers and been pulled over you know the way it goes....it first starts with a licence check...

At this stage it doesn’t look like the weather is going to co-operate.....but leave it another week and we might be in lock-down again....Should have gone last Sunday looking with 20/20 hindsight. Please keep an eye on the forecast. Being a wet Saturday will make the roads damp on Sunday given the limited traffic on some of the roads we’re planning to travel on. Just saying, be prepared for disappointment.
