Anyone fancy a drive out tonight?

Just watched top gear and with all the talk about the fact we should all just go out for driving's sake, anyone want to come with? I'll be setting off in the next 15-20 minutes, any suggestions for directions to head in? (Starting in falmouth)

Think I've done my share of driving this weekend... whole tank of petrol, and 9 hours of driving

I wish there were more Alfa lovers where I live, it's basically just me and Ray on here that I know of. Despite the fact that I drive a Fiat, i'd love to go out for a drive with some of the guys on here.

Re: Anyone fancy a drive out tonight?

I always enjoy a good drive which is lucky really as I live in Newcastle upon tyne and work in Norwich. 264 miles each way but in an Alfa, who cares about distance. :-)

I still want to try out that road between St Ives and St Just sometime. I was in St Ives the other week but didn't have time to take the long route back

Re: Anyone fancy a drive out tonight?

Agreed - Kernow suggested a mini-meet (incorporating a pub, obviously) in another thread recently. Don't know what Simon is planning for the main meet but we could try out some routes for him

Yeah.. But I don't want to be at home at the moment.. So why not be out doing something I like instead (might be why I killed a tank of petrol this weekend)
