I have been in contact with April and Brian from Mx5revive at Thorney about a group visit to their premises on the 2nd of June.
There are essentially 3 parts to this trip, The Run, The Visit and of course The Lunch! Please feel free to join up and tag along from wherever you are at any point during the day, taking in as much or as little as you like.
This event is open to all comers, I do however, need some idea on numbers, April and Brian have some arranging to do for this, as do the Restaurant, so please reply to the thread, PM me or just let me know by telling me!
The Run: Starting in Norwich (but join in anytime from anywhere) to MX5-Revive will of course be a scenic one! We are looking to take on the fabulous Norwich to Watton Road, then head North West on the A134 through Thetford Forest before joining onto the old ER favourite - Salters Lode via Outwell through to Thorney on the A1122/A47.
The Visit: Mx5revive are the UK’s Premier used MX-5 spares specialists who are based in our region, they are enthusiasts, they are club and forum members, they sponsor a Ma5da racing competitor and they are also National Rally traders! Once described by our very own Roadster Robbie as his “Utopia” they stock parts for most MX-5 and Roadsters on the shelf, ready for sale. Take a look at www.mx5revive.com for full details.
The Lunch: For those with an appetite for a little more driving and lots of food we plan to visit Arbuckles Diner at Downham Market, the famous American restaurant has a reputation for not only being big on flavour but also on portion sizes! The route to Arbuckles will take in the famous Ten Mile Bank, Denver Sluice and Denver Mill. The Table is booked for 13.30 and they can’t wait to make our groups first visit a welcome one! Check out Arbuckles Diner including the menu here: www.arbuckles.biz/
