Merlot goes to Scotland...

Nearly 500 miles there and 500 miles back again, Project Merlot headed north of the border to the MX-5 Owners Club Spring Rally in Pitlochry over the weekend of 18-19 May. With it raining nearly all the way up it was a challenging drive but we arrived to claim pole position right outside the main rally hotel.

Sunday saw the Merlot enter into competition and not winning anything, but hey, its the taking part that counts.

With some far nicer weather on Monday we headed home the pretty way. There is no better place to drive an MX-5 than on the Scottish Highland roads and no better MX-5 than Project Merlot to do that in.

Project Merlot goes forward with Adrian Flux Car Insurance.

We are very pleased to announce that Project Merlot is now insured by Adrian Flux through the MX-5 Owners Club member benefits scheme which the insurer launched with the Club in March this year.
Adrian Flux, through the Club scheme, can offer MX-5 Owners Club members substantial discounts on all car, motorcycle and home insurance purchased. Plus Club members have the added satisfaction in knowing that the Club benefits from the purchases too. 

The Merlot now sports the Adrian Flux logo which we think look pretty cool on the car. 

And you won't have failed to notice the other new addition to the car! We thought we were a bit short of downforce, so we stuck this bad boy wing on the back of Project Merlot. What do you reckon ? Is it big enough ?

Project Merlot will be heading to the MX-5 Owners Club Spring Rally in Pitlochry Scotland over the weekend of 18-18 May and then to the Blyton 1-3 in June, check out the new mods there.
