16 September 2007
SATURDAY 15 September saw the Merlot head to Woodbridge Airfield for another Javlin Track day. Two new track day drivers, Chris Gage and Gary Smith joined Ken Ward and Katie Pyle driving on the Suffolk track.
The day got off to a very bad start when the exhaust system failed completely on the way to the venue. A quick trip to the nearest Exhaust Centre and half an hour later it was welded back together. Thanks go to Hadleigh Tyres and Exhausts of Woodbridge Road Ipswich for the invaluable assistance.
After a successful day on the track the Merlot headed west in convoy with several other Eastern Region 5s to the Heritage Motor Centre at Gaydon ready for the MX-5 Owners Club National Rally on the Sunday.
The Merlot featured on the Owners Club Motor Sport stand on the Sunday where it was conveniently located immediately adjacent to the AON Insurance stand and was joined by several other club motor sport cars including the Phoenix 5s racer.
