2011 Winter Drive Victoria

The Vic member Drive Day went off yesterday very well, with 11 Focus RS’s, one XR5, one Capri RS3100 attending. A great drive through the Yarra Valley preceded a lovely lunch at the Yea Peppercorn Hotel. Despite having a reservation for 12 people (not knowing who would actually turn up on the day), the owners soon found seats for 24 of us. Lunch was ten out of ten, accompanied by some great “car chat” whilst making lots of new friends.

Prior to lunch the weather had been kind, however upon leaving Yea the rain had arrived and our drive down to St Andrews was less spirited than originally planned, as the roads were now very wet and slippy, and low cloud hampered visibility. A cleansing refreshment was taken at the St Andrews hotel before driving back towards Melbourne and home. We covered some 188.8 kilometres and by all accounts, everyone had a great day. Gallery
