Driving Test Day – 27 October 2013

Driving Test – Sunday 27 October 2013

On one of the hottest and best days of this Autumn we had a great turnout of 34 people and 14 Classic Cars taking part in a fabulous day organised by Arthur and Dee Richards.

Starting in Festival Park with a controlled speed, half a mile circuit driven at 25kms per hour we proved that very few of us can judge our speed at a slow pace. The next tests took place after a relaxed and lovely 25km drive through the centre of the island. We were tested on our navigator’s ability to guide the blinfolded driver, a gentle slalom, garage parking tests and a controlled two revolutions of the front wheel.

After another lovely drive towards Randa the final test was a hill start with a raw egg placed behind the rear wheel to see if we could start without rolling back. Followed by a delicious lunch at Es Reco de Randa.

The winners were Chris and Shan Blunt with 40 points followed by Jane and Robert Klevenhagen with 35 points.

Look forward to seeing you all at our next Event.

Arthur and Dee Richards
