Peugeot 206 GTI

Victorian 206GTI Run 17th Feb 2002

MPG - 2034k

Sunday 17th Feb

Well it was a beautiful day for a drive, temperature in the high 20ís, little cloud and no wind.

Most of us met at the start of the Mornington Peninsula Freeway, and headed off in convoy to Arthurís Seat. At the top of the Seat, we met the remaining participants- a grand total of 7 GTis, 1 Vectra, 1 Falcon and a 600cc Fazer bike. After waiting until 10.45 for any stragglers, we headed north, playing follow the leader. The leader promptly took a wrong turn (OK, it was me) taking us a little further east than expected, but through some lovely country. Eventually (after two u-turns that would have looked really funny), we had a competent navigator take over the leadership role and guide us safely to Lang Lang.

After a quick fuel top-up, we headed east-north-east to Poowong via Nyora, then on to Drouin. Most of this road is small hills, so it was a good warm-up for the things ahead.

After stopping in Drouin for a pub meal and refreshing ale (minus Bernie who went further east), we headed north to Noojee, then west to Yarra Junction and on to Warburton- where the fun began. Warburton to Marysville is a fantastic windy road that you can take with ease, or go hard and push the little pug to its limits. This is a great piece of tar to discover just how capable the GTi (and its driver) really is, and thankfully we all got through relatively unscathed. From Marysville, we headed south to across the Black-Spur to Healesville where we all said our good-byes and made our own way home.

Only two minor casualties for the whole 500km trip, Tim with a damaged tyre due to a colossal pothole just outside Noojee, and me loosing my muffler (mainly due to manufacturing problem that left it loose and ill-fitting) about 5Kmís before Noojee.

Great fun was had by all, and a second drive is already in the works.
