PHOTOS TAKEN AT THE APPIN HOTEL RUN VIA BURRAGORANG LOOKOUT AND THE MALDON SUSPENSION BRIDGE ON 19TH JANUARY 2014

The first challenge of the day was…which Macdonald's on the M4 do we meet at? With this solved 50 AMOC members set out on a beautiful day to cover 130k of great driving roads. However, before the crowd got underway, Terry gave the drivers a quick briefing of what to expect and then Richard Quan from Trivett's offered any AMOC member to chance to test drive either a new DB9 or the recently released Vantage V12 S during the day /whilst on the run. The first 73k drive was a simple drive through some country roads to the amazing Burragorang Dam. A total of 13 instructions would get you there. Lesson one for the day: Don’t think the person in front knows where they are going! Once everyone arrived Lionel Walker (ex DB6 Owner) gave a detailed account of how the Dam was built and what it use to look like in the 50's. A group photo in front of the beautiful Vantage V12S followed.
First casualty of the day was Rod & Ros Owens who left the Aston at home in favor of their Toyota. The problem was evident, a missing Radiator Cap. Seems like someone checked the water but forgot to replace the Cap!!
The second stop was another great drive to the Maldon Suspension Bridge. However, not everyone turned up. Lesson two ….see Lesson one above!! This suspension bridge was once the main route from Picton to Wilton Park but was closed to traffic nearly forty years ago. And the final drive of the day took the group over the Douglas Park Bridge and through Broughtons Pass to the Appin Hotel for lunch. More than 50% of the group had never travelled over these roads before. Everyone settled down to a hearty lunch with a few lucky AMOC having a test drive of the Vantage V12S.
The quote of the day must go to the bikkie standing on the front porch of the hotel watching the Vantage taking off on a test drives. "The exhaust note on that Aston Martin is so sexy it’s giving me an Er…… !!!"
