Burley bypass

PostPost by: davidj » Tue Sep 10, 2013 11:31 am

Morning,

I followed a light blue e reg coupe last night on the Burley bypass and onto Ilkley, or rather, I tried to as I guess it was doing around 80 approaching the roundabout!

Anyone claim ownership?

Your speedo must be misreading as I was doing exactly 70. Honest. :oops:

Anyone happen to be/know the owner of a Blue +2 Convertible in Ikley?

We were on our way to Kettlewell stuck queuing for the lights on the A65 and the +2 was heading towards Otley. A round lunch time, Mid July time. Unfortunately I was in Peugeot Camper van not an Elan.

If it's the same car I'm thinking of then the owner is my father in law's neighbour's son. I've met him a couple of times. He also has a race prepared red Mini Cooper S seen around Ilkley from time to time.

Thanks, thought someone would have a good idea.

That made me chuckle, I just don't get people describing connections like that over here! Makes me miss Yorkshire.
