The 3rd Annual AOS Tour 2012

Being Scottish I should try but it is a long way and no guarantee of good weather at that time of the year.
So its a no for me too.

Now that is just showing off Joe!! Even our Lesley and her man David would not bring 2 cars (they have 3 Alfas to choose from)

It will be a cracking weekend regardless

I like to be at the back of a convoy not front ... last time I was upfront .. my boost pressure sensor went ...it was up a hill with others following .... * the shame.. head hung low * ....




*the lorry at the side of me was going faster than me *




But I live to tell the tale ...

I am driving the Cup the week before to France and Belgium for Spa Italia so I think we both may need a rest rather than fight the wind, the rain, the hail, the drizzle, (snow !!) that will be lovely Scotland at that time of year.

I book the weather as well mate, it's never let me down yet Last year it was glorious sunshine the whole weekend, year before rain on day 1 for a couple of hours then glorious sunshine. Just look at some of the pics from previous years for proof.

May day weekend is always scorchio

I hope you do get fantastic weather with lots of happy Alfa campers and I look forward to seing pictures of blue skies, sunburnt men and woman and cars radiating in the sun

Weather will be what it is, up to us to make the most of it. I booked sunshine though, and I kept the receipt
