Wonderful stuff! As to the Raid itself - in all over eighty A series vehicles made it up to the UK's highest pub plus a 600cc air cooled Trabant, an air cooled flat twin Ural motorcycle combination and several Citroen Bxs!!
Some thirty 2CVers stayed over on the Sunday night and were treated to a great evening of folk music, pop music, poetry and even a bit of music hall.
The prize for the oldest vehicle went to Nigel Brown in his 1958 Bijou. The farthest travelled UK participants were Sarah and Richard Wilmot who came 350 miles from Somerset but the prize was won by Dominique Tournette who came all the way from St Germain du Corbeis near Alencon in France to clock up 530 miles, a Raid record.
Thanks to everybody who helped in running the event and especially Sarah Monaghan who got up at 6 am. to prepare three and a half gallons of mulled wine, Robert Harrington who did all the printing, Sarah and her staff at Tan Hill who managed to feed nearly 200 people in just over an hour and finally to Tony Shields of 2CV City without whose generous financial support we would not be able to continue to keep Raid Tan Hill a completely free event.
Thanks to everybody who came and see you all again in January 2013, there may be snow!
