On the 8th July, we hosted our first ever Dusk Refuelling at Pentillie Castle. It’s essentially the same as Dawn Refuelling, only with a more sociable meeting time!
Around 60 cars gathered on the lawn in front of the Castle and we enjoyed a few hours of rare sunshine. The main talking point was of course the forthcoming Festival of Speed, but with Andy Murray playing Roger Federer at Wimbledon and the British F1 Grand Prix finishing just a few hours earlier, chat soon spilled over into other sports!
On show was an original 1963 Shelby Cobra, a Sylvia Riot, Frazer Nash, Volvo Amazon and a rather lovely Westfield Lotus 11 Replica. Those with a taste in more modern cars were rewarded by the site of a Nissan GT-R, MINI JCW and even a Chrysler Delta.
There was also a chance for visitors to walk the hill for the first time as well as enjoying some al freso dining courtesy of the barbecue.
Everybody left eagerly anticipating the main event which is now just over a month to go.
The tension is building!
