Not just for fathers …

Story: Ron Macdonald What better way is there to spend a Father’s Day than with a bunch of keen little MX-5s for a cruise around Gippsland? With a beautiful sunny day forecast we set off towards Drouin. One thing of note on the trip down to the start point – we passed a silver NC R

Lots of corners, not many turns

Mt Buffalo Chalet 2012
Story: Gerry Engwerda Fabulous – the sort of day where you can put the top down right at the start and not have to think about it again for the rest of the run. The start, incidentally, saw us at the Java Café in the main street of Yackandandah (yes, there is such a place), where the
