Grumpy's Elan Doughnuts at Castle Combe

PostPost by: Spyder fan » Fri May 22, 2015 6:08 pm

Roll up, roll up!! Grumpy's Elan doughnuts free of charge at Castle Combe tomorrow.

Nicely packed, labelled and heat sealed in food grade bags, only touched by the baker at Morrisons supermarket where they were bought today.

Will be displayed on the bonnet of my S4 when I get there tomorrow some time between 9 and 10am.


In memory of John Pelly (GrumpyBodger) who always gave away doughnuts at Castle Combe. There's approximately 36no some are standard and some have been interleaved with raspberry jam. Recommended that anti flail Twix driveshafts are used rather than the cadburys flake variety, but if it's original for you and yours just go with it!
Kindest regards

Hi Alan,

I like it, a very nice touch. Wish I was coming. I had it in mind to get some of those little logo's made for next year to put in the car screen.

I made the trip for the last 3 years, but unfortunately I can't this year (today).

I'll raise a virtual doughnut to Grumpy Bodger

HI Alan, quick thanks for the Donut at CCombe today. Also thanks for the useful info about the Spyder mods. I'll drop you a note about the Brake Calipers. Thanks, Niall
