A winning W/NG

Postby Michael.Brown » Wed Apr 18, 2018 9:31 pm

Hi all,

I competed in my first Cotswold VMCC event for 17 years a couple of weeks ago. It was a Navigational Scatter Run with questions at each checkpoint. I ripped the nipple off the Exhaust Valve Lifter Cable 48 hours before the event but thanks to Reg Eyre we made up a new one just in time.

The W/NG performed admirably in what were pretty poor conditions (cold, wet and windy), and although I was pretty rubbish at all the questions, the bike however won the Cotswold Concours Cup for the best Post Vintage Concours. I might add although my machine is clean it most certainly is not immaculate.

This is the first trophy I have ever won! The pictures below were taken the week before.
