We took the ZS180 as it hadn't had a decent run since I bought it and I wanted to see how it would do.
Picnic lunch and flasks packed and we set off for the hour long drive to the start at Prudhoe where we found everybody suitably socially distanced.
It wasn't long before we were off on a run of about 80 miles with a series of questions to answer along the way.
The morning section was a tad damp but we were in a warm closed car so didn't care. It was an uneventful run to the lunch halt at Lanercost Priory where we discovered what the wing on the boot was for.
Eventually we arrived at the finish, The Carts Bog Inn, where we had some socially distanced chat. Coffee and cake was next on the list but there was no cake so we had to bite the bullet and have coffee and desert instead. It's a hard life sometimes.
Eventually it was time to head for home and we took the route via Barnard Castle, some of it I'd never driven before.
All in we'd covered just over 200 miles door to door and the ZS perfomed impeccably and despite some slightly spirited driving on the back roads it returned 31 mpg. The more I drive this car, the more impressed I am with it.
After we got home we had an email with the quiz results and we had 24 out of 25 correct so happy with that.
A big thanks to Ed Graham for all his hard work in plotting the route and finding some roads which could only be described as interesting, and for all the planning and coordination with other agencies to make this happen. It's a lot of work and we really appreciate it.
