Dutton Kit Cars and their owners

Here we are again another Duttoneering year about to begin.
Mr Heap is rebuilding his engine, following a little end knock, work is well under way and will soon be back together.
Lenn is also getting on with business, and the restoration of his S2 is nearing completion. Maybe not ready for the spring tour, but we are sure he'll be in the driving seat before the end of summer.
Martin has been busy rebuilding the suspension on the Westfield and polishing.
Ade is always busy keeping the daily driver on the road, and I am sure he'll be modifying and repairing right up to the morning of the tour.
Steve Kerry's new Legerra is still in sorting mode, but no excuses this year. He passes the mantle of support vehicle not to Lenn and Jan.

As for my Phaeton, well next week it's going into storage at a friends workshop, whilst we get on with the house move up to Cumbria, she needs a full set of tyres, but everything else is working, so leave well alone. I'll move the Phaeton to cumbria once we get settled, then everyday is a Lakes tour day for me.

This year we are touring the lakes starting in our usual way from the Black Dog in Belmont travelling to Tebay for a re-group where myself and Marian will join the tour, and the Breakfast stop. From there it off to Appleby, the rest is still in planning, but with an over night stop at Muncaster Castle. The following day will continue with high fell passes, visiting Coniston and much more.

Wishing you all a Happy Duttoneering year.

Ready for the off, The Northern Duttoneers Spring Lakes Tour is underway #TNDontheroad.
Meeting up at the services
Topical Northern weather, 18 days of sun shine until you take the roof off.

Have fun anyway boys!  Enjoy.

Cheers Paul, next year you'll have to come with us.

We're back, got some serious windchill from all that roof off stuff...

283 miles covered, average speed including stops was 31MPH, max was a whisker over 76MPH although that must have been on a private road somewhere... honest officer 

I didn't keep track of my fuel as it scares me however all the work done on the legerra in the last few weeks really paid off. Better handling, braking and steering control, softer springs worked making it a much more comfortable experience.

Five went out, five came back, no breakdowns or mishaps but some close calls with speed ramps...

Photo's and video to follow.


a bit of video if the you tube link works.

I recon an S2 Phaeton would compliment that fine array of vehicles !!! - maybe next year ;-)) 

Many thanks to Lenn for taking over the role of 'support vehicle' in admirable fashion, rumour has it that he will be needing a replacement later in the year when his S2 is finished.

And yes, Sue was driving my Leggy as I was 'wally on the wall' 

Nah, Steve came back for me in the blue leggy, sat on the boot holding the roll cage while he drove after the others...
