|In 2010 and 2012, we used HOE for the RBRR, for 2014 it's FRanK's turn. Figuring that it's never too early to start preparing for an event like this, back in September we started on new preparation facilities.|
First thing to do was a good clear out. So after many trips to the tip and back, my work, Amanda's parents cellar and the loft the garage was empty. We had managed to squirrel everything away.
|So then we knocked the garage down........carefully though, as we wanted to re-use as many of the rooftiles and bricks as we could. Then we handed over the reins to our next door neighbour and builder Kevin.|
|Along with some of his mates he dug holes, filled skips and layed concrete. Bricks and blocks were layed, drains re-routed and scaffolding arrived.|
|One of the holes was lined and bricked up, with a steel frame around the top, I'm sure this could come in useful in the future, not sure what for yet though.|
|Once that is done, I can start on the cars' new room and then FRanK's preparation for next year's event. So in a roundabout way preparation had already begun before the entry form arrived from Club Triumph. Hope we started early enough!|
