Dutton Kit Cars and their owners

Follow the adventure or misadventures of The Northern Duttoneer's

You will be able to follow The Northern Duttoneer's blog, as we travel the Coast to Coast route through some of the best country roads in Britain.

At every chance I'll try to update you on the progress we are making. The run starts on the 4th September with the drive to the starting point at St Bee's Head in Cumbria, after an overnight stay there we set off on the Sunday to travel the 189 miles to Robin Hood's Bay on the East coast, visiting Hartside Cafe (highest cafe in the UK) then on to Alston (Highest Market Town in the UK) before crossing the Pennines and into the North Yorkshire Dales with a Lunch stop at Richmond. Then on to our goal the East coast village of Robin Hood's Bay.

After another overnight stop, we head back home via Leyburn, Kettlewell, with Lunch at Skipton. Then Home for Tea.

If the weather buck's up it will be an amazing drive, and if it rains well we'll get a bit wet.

Isn't that what Duttoneering is all about?

Why not come and meet us on the way

Where is the rolling road? I would have thought with the cam and 40's it would be good for 120+, certainly after following you down the struggle.
We have asked Kath, but she does work till late on Thursday's

What news of the rolling road, and the Westie?

Theres one'o those in Aspull... garage with a showroom, currently not being used, big carpark for sunday autotests. I am trying to find out who owns it.

Good news about Steve and Kath,

Rolling road sessions involve too much standing still burning petrol.. better just get out there and try it. I think I might put new plugs in, maybe even a new set of points but why change whats been working fine for the last 20,000 miles

Clutching at straws comes to mind here, do you not think checking the alternator bolts would be time better spent?
I have just booked Steve & Kath into the first hotel.
I am just thinking about putting a couple of relays in the headlamp feeds, Steve thinks the bigger bulbs need more Amps, but then I want to get stuck in on the Sierra while the sun's out. Next house needs triple garage with a fully kitted out engineering shop, and a CNC machine, On infact next house will be a garage with a bedroom.

And there's that word again "crash"
Steve & Kath have just left, and will be travelling with us on the Saturday, if there's a room they will stay over, and come with us as far as Keswick, Steve's working Sunday night.
