  1. For me, it's the journey that is the most important factor of the road trip, along with the various towns and villages you stop at en-route. Have encountered many experiences (good and bad) on past trips and it's certainly a steep learning curve and finding out what to do and not to do on future trips.
  2. Here is a list of things you may need to pack for the car when setting off on a Road Trip (Please Note: some items will have an affiliate link which clicks through to a supplier but you will not be charged anything for this) A motoring kit needs to be packed in the car before venturing abroad. Below is a list of the minimum required kit to take with you in order to comply with all the rules and regulations: The below items are linked for your convenience and for easier searching. First Aid Kit (comprehensive) Spare Bulb Kit (bulbs for all the lights on the
  3. Route 66, known as the Mother Road starts in Chicago and travels 300 miles through Illinois. Take it to Joliet and visit the historic Rialto Theater that plays host to world-class entertainment. Stop off at diners who specialize in delicious, homemade food, and visit Starved Rock, voted Illinois' number one attraction, with its huge bluffs, deep canyons and majestic waterfalls.

  5. Which ones have you done from the above Alfa4 ? I have previously done the following (sometimes more than once): 1, 2, 4, 5, 11, 12, 15, 19 However, am looking to do the following in the near future: 6, 8, 10, 13, 16, 17 Chomping at the bit for the restrictions not to be there early next year and finally get out on the road 🙂
  6. Led Zeppelin 1 Led Zeppelin 2 Led Zeppelin 3 Led Zeppelin 4 ...need I go on? 🙂
  7. Well we can honestly say that 2020 was not a good year for Road Trips. However, 2021 surely has to be the ultimate year for travelling by car rather than by air to far flung destinations. Will this be the case though with Covid restrictions still being in place and also restricted travel to foreign countries being levied on the British population in the post-Brexit months? We think that Road Trips are the way forward....certainly when it comes to 'stretching our legs' after all the lockdown periods in 2020. Europe still wants Tourists and we still want to go abroad and spend our mon
  8. By the early 1990s the Rover Group sales were on the up. Their relationship with Honda had produced the success of the Rover 200, the flagship Rover 800 and the company was now in the hands of British Aerospace Unfortunately the world"s economy was not strong, with the world"s markets for both cars and planes, commercial and military, falling. It is in these times that the SK3 project started, stalled and was reborn as the R3 Rover 200. It has been called 'The last all-British, volume car' but that's not true... It is a story worth telling and now has been told by many of tho
  9. Route taking in the historic, derelict Reims-Gueux circuit in the Champagne region of France. Next onto the legendary Spa-Francorchamps circuit which is nestled in the Ardennes, Belgium. Finally onto the world-famous Nurburgring circuit in Germany. Directions from Circuit du Reims-Gueux to Nürburgring.kmz
  10. Welcome John....good choice in cars and always handy to have a fair weather car to hand for when its a bit warmer. I use my BMW Z3 in the winter but with wooly hat and heater blowing hot and still great fun to drive on a cold winters day Good to have you onboard!
  11. That makes two of us Alfa4 🙂 My Z3 is ready for the sunshine and still quite empty roads (for the moment that is)
  12. I have done the Italian Lakes before on my motorbike but made a schoolboy error in thinking they are easy to drive round not realising the view is pretty much the same all round with the exception of some lovely towns and villages scattered throughout the coast road. The biggest mistake was not realising that they are usually 30mph all the way round which is nice to take in the views but takes forever to get round the lake 😞
  13. How's everyone coping with lockdown and looking forward to getting back on the roads?
  14. I attend this race event every year (last 13 years in a row) and will go for as long as they run it and I'm still vertical. Has to be the best race event on the calendar for not just the 24 hours racing and other events but just the spectacle and atmosphere. Can highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys motorsport
