First trip out for the BX in three years (bar the MOT), really was a rather enjoyable day, regardless of the weather.

Looks like it was a great turnout. i cant believe how many amazing condition Xantias there are knocking around now. They are getting rare too.

I missed an opportunity to to ride in a CX and also have a butchers at that blue GS Pallas that was featured in the classics monthly car mag a while ago. I only re read that article the other week.

Pity i couldnt make it....weather was dry too :)

THE X RALLY - 15th April 2012.

Postby Rhothgar » 15 Apr 2012, 23:53

Napoleon. As Shaggy once sang, "It wasn't me!"

Sounds too organised to be carrying an umbrella if it was going to rain.

Both Sylv and I enjoyed the event though Sylv very miffed that there was no ZX award! A few admirers even though we didn't have time to let some gentlemen wash it this morning! One day ZX's may be recognised.

Nice to meet old friends and new. Hi to citroenxm especially. Thanks to Jim too for being another FCF member's banker! Nice to see Martin and Wendy turn up from Wymondham.

Nice turn out, beautiful location but dubious weather. We shouldn't really be moaning about how cold it was when 1500 people list their lives 100 years ago to the day. So let's spare a thought for all those who perished on the Titanic as we go to sleep tonight.

Had a really good time at my first Citroen rally. Was the last to arrive and second from last to leave.
Good to see Roger (Rhothgar) and Sylv again, and meet the legend that is CitroJim!!! (and Jim, the Xantia's ride is better now the front isn't dragging along the floor, but what a pain in the bum to adjust. Thanks for the advice).
Hope to meet some more of you at the next one!! Still smiling from this one!!!

A very impressive turn out.

Great to see some old acquaintances and make some new ones, apologies to those that I missed.
Bit on the parky side though.

Many thanks to citroenmad and trainman for the lifts. Both the XM and the C6 are superb, in their own different ways.

Did manage to get home after a magical mystery tour of deepest, darkest Derbyshire. Not until after midnight though.

I looked all over for you, but noone matching your avatar was anywhere to be found (but did see a small dog getting all excited against a tree in the park, not quite the same thing).

I was in disguise :)

I do appear on some of the images though and will be speaking to my legal representative :twisted:


Thanks again Chris and Steve , very much appreciated and hope to be able to return the favour at some point.
