Many thanks to Bruce & Wendy for a fantastic weekend. Great hotel with the best food I can remember at a gala dinner. The image of the Lancias skidding and sliding up the ramp at the Bowes Museum will stay with me forever!

Well done and congratulations to everyone that went despite the appalling conditions. I am delighted that the accommodation and especially the Gala Dinner was so good, seems an appropriate reward to those who made it.

The weekend will have been memorable, I am looking forward to seeing the photographs !!!!

May everyone have a safe journey home.

East/west A66 closed since Friday, its a dual carriageway!
Had to divert on the way via snow covered minor roads quite exciting even in an integrale.

Went back to the Bowes museum on the way home today, then had to go south to the A59 to get back west of the Pennines, only the odd drift of blown snow.

Excellent weekend.

made it home safely at high speed (280 miles in 3 3/4 hours) with variable oil pressure and engine knocking occasionally.

winter tyres worked well starting Rosie (Gamma) on sheet ice upholl at Bowes musuem, and also on the drifting snow around the dales around Durham.

Great weekend - Many thanks Bruce, Wendy and Team Lancia NE  Smiley

Thanks to the organisers.
Most enjoyable weekend, even though the Arnott carburetor decided to disintegrate (slightly) and the brake lights came on and stayed on. Got home in time to watch the F1 race. Better wash the car tomorrow.

Many thanks to Bruce, Wendy and their team of great helpers, whatever the weather, the GNW is always an enjoyable event. Picture this - one of the cheerful marshals stood on top of a hill outside in horizontally drifting snow - true grit!!
When you see what other parts of the country suffered this weekend, we were actually in the right place.  Like others I am sure, I can't wait to wash the salt of the car.  Roll on a warmer Welsh Weekend - I hope.

 The Y10 Selectronic cruised up from Bristol via Oxford and home again with minimum of fuss all-be-it heating also a bit minimal!
 MPG approx double your "usual" John for the 700+ miles
 On the down side my "For Sale" sign did not attract much attention as weather conditions did not encourage too much loitering in the car park.

Great weekend Bruce, Wendy and NE section who as ever pulled out all the stops with a lovely hotel with super food and great hospitality.
Commitments on the Friday resulted in a Saturday start, but shock/horror could only see half a Thesis such was the snow drifts and our estate was impassable without much digging, so begrudgingly took the XC90 c/w winter tyres and snow chains in the boot. Even then the journey was fraught at times but once over the Pennines it got better with the NE surprisingly clear along the A1 & Durham itself.
Considering the weather the turn out was fantastically well attended.
The tour was nice even though cut short and watching John overtaking slower traffic and throwing that Augusta around through the drifts with Don in his integrale in hot pursuit was great from our cosy elevated position.
The homeward journey was no problem at all.
Well done organisers!

Thank you Bruce, Wendy & your team for a great weekend.  Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Apart from the climb up to the Bowes Museum the VX behaved superbly & covered the 253 miles home in 3 1/2 hours.  Washed the salt off the top straight away but will have to wait till the hose thaws before hosing the underside.
