Orange / Black strip - Ranmore Common Road

Patchy damp road and the old bit of loose gravel to keep you on your toes Smile

That was me! Took the car out for the first time in a month or so to Guildford. All the back roads of course Hehe

Could also have been me!
 

@benton were you in a bright orange lotus per chance? I followed one through ranmore and down Crocknorth hill late morning/ 12 ish. I remember you having one, we've exchanged waves before around that area. I lost contact with you at the end of Green Deane turning onto the A246! I had just picked my car up from GP sevens after some mods and TLC... 

Sounds like two orange 7s out though

What are the odds of two of us down the same road , the same colour and around the same time! Couldn't make it up.

Right! It's not like any 7 is a common spot especially this time or year! 

there was a few nice cars out mind, us obviously, but I also saw a deep blue Ferrari 812, and a 911 resto mod...

do you gents ever go to the pub meets locally? I'm still fairly new to the scene, but would be good to meet other like minded local (ish) owners and petrol heads.

Very strange eh! 

I did a run through to Guildford and there were a few nice cars out. Making the most of the dry weather I bet. I actually got spotted by a local detailer and someone else and received two PM's on Instagram so that made up for this Hehe

Ive been to a few Surrey 7 meets but generally snowed under with work so only have been to a few over the last year. Be good to maybe get a morning meet somewhere like Rykas cafe or Denbies?

I don't know those places. But would be up for a morning meet at some point, rules and weather allowing! I'm based near Woking... so not far from the Surrey hills.
