We left home on Thursday evening at 9.30pm to make our 6 hour journey to Dover. We fuelled the truck in Keighley ready for our big journey. All went well and we managed not to miss this ferry which set off from Dover to Calais at 4.00am. The crossing was smooth and after a short […]

16th August 2011: Ministox at Skegness

The week has flown by. Once again we make our 3½ hour journey to Skegness. All is going well until 15 miles away from the track we have a blow out. After a quick inspection I decide just to take it steady and carry on to our destination as it will be much easier to […]

7th August 2011: Ministox at Barford

A mixture of sunshine and showers on the way to Barford. Frankie JJ, like me loves wet tarmac and mentions that he’s going to put his shale tyres on when we get there. As it turns out Frankie JJ didn’t need to put shale tyres on as it remained fine. Approx 30 Minis turn up, […]
