Hi everyone,

With Turbo40, I've been a bit pre-occupied! Now it's time to look at this! Please reply to this post or email me at events@porsche924.co.uk if you’d like to come- we’d love to see you.

1st of June. Starting point will be at Blyton Park race circuit, near Gainsborough and will end at Woodhall Spa airfield.

https://www.blytonpark.co.uk

https://www.lincstrust.org.uk/get-invol ... a-airfield

We're taking in around 15 airfields this time and its a very different route to the previous runs- if you've done this before, it'll feel nice and fresh.

We're stopping at the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre to look around their marvelous museum. We're even promised special access to drive onto the old airfield and park in front of the Lancaster's hangar. The doors will be opened for some outstanding photo opportunities. If the weather is good, Just Jane might come outside too!

http://www.lincsaviation.co.uk

Once we're finished at the museum, we'll go on to Woodhall Spa airbase. It's mostly intact and owned by the RSPB. We have special permission to walk the airfield and I've been given the access codes for that too. It's a haunting place and, if you came last year bookends the other run too- this is the airfield that Guy Gibson took off from and never returned.

I have some contacts at the BBMF and, if they're due to fly that day, we'll try to get to Conningsby to watch them come home.

Finally, if I have some interest, I'll book a table at the Bluebell Inn. This is an amazing little pub with a great story.



This year, thanks to the Lincolnshire Aviation Museum, we will be issuing a very special trophy for the best photo that includes a 924 and something related to the RAF.

Please can you confirm you're coming again below and if you're interested in having a meal? I can take bookings up to the Wednesday before but the more notice:
