We had the teas, coffees and biscuits at the ready and a great morning was had by all.
They brought with them a fantastic collection of Porsches for us to look at and admire.
They spent a good few hours with us, meeting half the Bridge Classic Cars team and getting an insight into what we do here before heading off for lunch at the Dennington Queen.
The Norfolk and Suffolk Region (R12) covers a large geographic area, including the coastal towns of Felixtowe, Lowestoft and Yarmouth, the towns and cities of Norwich, Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds and surrounding villages. They are an active, sociable club, enjoying a wide variety of events. The members enjoy their Porsches and drive a variety of models from classics to nearly new.
Our region is famous for the Norfolk Broads and has pretty villages to explore, historic Stately Homes and Gardens, quaint country pubs, a lovely coastline, plus good roads to test our pride and joy. We have Snetterton Race Track on our doorstep and several Porsche and Classic Car Specialists in our area who support our Club and whose premises we visit from time to time.
They meet on the third Tuesday of the month at The Bird in Hand Public House, Wreningham, a short drive from Lotus Cars. The meeting starts at 8pm with either a guest speaker, a quiz, or simply to meet up and enjoy a social evening with like-minded people. They discuss forthcoming events and outings, chat about our cars and offer technical advice when needed – the members are encouraged to offer ideas for the future of the Club.
Their yearly program includes Sunday Lunches, visits to local places of interest, and classic car shows. They hold a BBQ each July and end the year with a Christmas Buffet with a charity raffle and auction for local causes.
The servicing work has successfully been carried out.
We discovered a leak that had developed in and around the axle boot so thanks to the guys and girls at Roger Bray Restorations – the classic Porsche specialists we were able to rectify the issue and return a ‘leak-free’ car.
Brian and Craig made the trip to Sudbury this morning to collect one of today’s projects. Having the covered car transporter out on the road daily is a fantastic way of being able to have your classic securely delivered to our premises and to let you get on with the rest of your day.
Here we are arriving at our Woodbridge workshops in our 1962 Porsche 356.
She is in our workshops today for a full service and a general check over.
