Observation Run 28th January 2006.

A hot day and being so close to Australia Day may have affected our attendance resulting in only five starters plus Max. Start Point was Maitland Park. Promptly at 9.00am, Steven & Robin Lilly in their red V12 E Type pulled away followed at two minute intervals by Eddie & Ailsa Wright, MK2. Andrew & Nicole Haigh, Mk2. Neil & "Maz" Smith, Mk2. Brian Vitnell & Allan, X300 V12 & finally Max, XJS 4 litre.

The quite scenic route took the intrepid starters through Kurri, Weston, Cessnock, Pokolbin Vineyards, Rothbury & to Branxton Park for morning tea. Thence via Stanhope, Maitland Vale, Rosebrook, Bolwarra and to our lunch stop in the excellent new dining room at the Hunter River Hotel in East Maitland. Whilst awaiting the sumptuous lunch Nicole & Max tallied the individual sheets to come up with the results. Of course Nicole & Andrews sheet was triple checked by Max to make sure all was fair and square.

Results as follows: 

1st Place. Andrew & Nicole Haigh.Navigation_Day.jpg (77731 bytes)

2nd Place. Brian Vitnell & Allan.

3rd Place. Steven & Robin Lilly

4th Place Eddie & Ailsa Wright

5th Place Neil & Maz Smith, in their very first outing.


Difference between 1st & 5th were 5 only, making it a very close result.

Congratulations to all who braved the conditions to participate. All in all it turned out a great day through scenic country with the pleasure of a good meal & excellent company.

Thanks to all who took part.
