Lister 5/1 Diesel

Nuenen Rally 2011

Menu Page - Part 1 of 6

After three superb years in 2008, 2009 and 2010, with excellent weather and facilities, we were off again on the 10th June for the 2011 Nuenen Engine show, its third year at the new location. We left home at 5.00am, Martin Perman joined us again for the trip, and arrived at our place about 04.15, so an early start for him. Our youngest son had already gone on ahead in his slower Land Rover diesel, and was at Harwich waiting for us when we arrived.

This year we had the new trailer, which was only just ready the day before. The drive to Harwich was uneventful, we met up with Philip inside the port after booking in. Trip over the North Sea was very calm and quiet, we also had a cabin so we could all have a snooze after the early start!

We had a bit of a false alarm on the way down past Rotterdam, a warning light came on in the Discovery, but after a stop and restart it cleared and didn't return.

Once at Nuenen, we got unloaded and Martin & Philip got theirtents set up, and were all ready for a bit of sleep at 10.30pm.

Next day we were up early and got the engines sorted out and running. The weather was mild with localised showers, some quite heavy. We had a fantastic weekend, with good engines, good friends and good weather.

Many thanks again to Anton, Bas and the crew for a great show.
