Harewood House Meet 20th June 2004
I'd like to claim that we drove all the way from Kent to arrive at Harewood at 0757 hours to be the first one there - but I cannot. In the interest of truth, I have to admit that we had spent the weekend visiting relatives in Oldham, about 40 minutes away. We did have a long drive home, though.
The day was mild and the sky overcast when we arrived, but the forecast had insisted that it would remain dry for most of the day, with some showers expected later, so we were hopeful. Seasoned veterans by now, we put the kettle on the gas burner for a fresh cup of tea while the Scorpios rolled in.
An roll in they did, arriving steadily and parking in our display area. One line complete, we started parking them back-to-back to make a second line.
Although clouds gathered and threatened, the sun often came through. I caught the sun on my neck, and so did Bertie.
Not for the first time, I heard some of the public saying "Cor - I didn't know Scorpios had Cosworths ..."
An excellent turnout made a full display and an impressive sight, by any standards, and it was really good to meet all those owners I had only ever known by name. I even met the legendary Snoopy - to find out that we had much more in common than I realised. It was a very good day.
Jean and I left at 3.30 because we had a long way to go home and we wanted to miss the snarl-up at the exit - and we drove though torrential rain on the A1 to get home..
