Thanks you to 'the gathering' of MX-5 cars that came over to the Mill over the weekend. We're glad you all had a good drive about the county and hope to see you all again!
From the group:
In 1999 Mazda launched the 10th Anniversary Edition. Finished with innocent blue mica paint, distinctive two-tone leather/alcantra seats and polished chrome wheels the 10ae is instantly recognisable. Eighteen years on about 400 cars still grace the British roads. In 2016 thirteen gleaming 10ae cars convened at Carsington Water in Derbyshire for The Gathering. Inspired by the pleasing bling and blue there was a pledge to repeat.
Day 1: By lunchtime 23 gleaming cars from the UK and the Netherlands had gathered at Jordans Mill, home of toasted cereals and tasty breakfast bars. Lunch overlooking the River Ivel, a group photoshoot, and then The Drive.
Day 2: Fourteen MX-5 cars stayed for breakfast at Jordans Mill and then out onto the open road for The Drive.
All said and done, it was a grand weekend and in very good company.
