November

Hi to you all,
We were away ‘across the water’ for October’s meet and have not heard much as to what went on, so you’ll just have to use your imagination unfortunately.
As we peer out into the gloom of an early November afternoon, the temperature and general weather outlook is not particularly Cobra friendly. On the odd occasion that Steve has ventured out into the garage, he certainly hasn’t been inspired to do much to the car, rather to hang around in the warm, looking listless and longing for a long hot summer afternoon…..


Steve ventured (almost to the end of the world) to Newquay at the end of October to see the Bloodhound Supersonic Car undertake its first low speed runs along the runway. Speeds of 210+ mph were reached in about 10 seconds with the Typhoon EJ200 engine under full reheat for a few seconds. It was certainly impressive to see. The next steps (further donations and sponsorship dependant) will see the continuing development and then fitment of the Naamo rocket motors and then off to South Africa for record attempts next year. Good luck.


Unfortunately, we haven’t had any response or interest from anyone regarding our annual Christmas Evening Meal. It may be that we have missed the boat now but, as a last call does anyone have a suggestion for a venue / date or would like to make a booking on our behalf?


So, for this month’s meet on Sunday 18th November @ 12:00, we’re off to East Suffolk this month. We’ve been here a few years ago, they generally have a roaring fire this time of year – The Beagle, Hadleigh Road, Sproughton, Ipswich, Suffolk, IP8 3AR https://www.vintageinn.co.uk/restaur...ebeagleipswich and 01473 730607. Don’t forget to phone and book if you intend to eat. Sadly, we won’t be able to join you, let us know how you get on.


We’ll continue to populate the ‘3rd Sunday’ calendar with interesting pubs to visit in our usual ‘On Tour’ format.
