What?

Blast across Kent and Sussex in your Alfa

When?


2pm on Sunday 23rd October 2011

Where?


Station Approach
Battle
East Sussex
TN33 0DE

National Rail Details

The Route

We meet up at Battle Train Station to poke around each others' cars, and after a short while we set off and drive Northwest to Heathfield; on the first run I organised we ran this stretch of road the other way and it was pretty tasty. Then onwards North towards Tunbridge Wells, skirting Southwest around it and coming back down through the twisting country lanes of Groombridge and then across the Ashdown Forest. Here, we hop across to Nutley, and take A-Roads until Piltdown, taking the long way round the Uckfield Bypass to then run it coming back around, back up near Piltdown for a well-deserved pint at The Griffin in Fletching. It's also a highly regarded gastro pub, but it's pretty down to earth - so, good food if you're hungry

The Griffin Inn

Make the effort boys and girls - they're always worth it

Nice to meet you too, the Battle to Tunbridge Wells run had a bit too much traffic on it

Indeedy... When everyone was driving with nice sounding pipes, I felt all left out with the "lack of noise" of the standard Alfa exhaust Will be the next item on the list to To Do's.

When I was trying to keep up with James' GTV-6, the sound on that motor is a bloody corker

PS. When the GTA lamps get fitted up next week, I'll add some before and after pics
