Smurfn and myself decided to take a run up to Gloucester today for a drive and a photoshoot. Had an absolute blast up along Bucketts Way through Stroud and out to Gloucester :D :D :D Great roads :D


Stopped at the township of Gloucester then went out and did some photos.

Undoubtedly, the highlight of the day was hooking through here...

(HUGE thankyou to Smurfn for taking the camera duties so I could get some shots of Obsession ;))

I wasnt very deep, probably 5 or 6 inches. Smurf makes it look SERIOUSLY deep though :p Cant say I was that brave :p

You just have to drive faster through the water. You can bend the number plate back later ;) :D :p :D

Hi Guys,

Great photos :D :D

I'm not so sure I would have driven so aggressively through the water :eek: There are a couple of stories on mini2 about trashed engines from water getting in the air intake while driving through shallow water :eek:

However, you obviously made it :D

Let me be the first one to nominate those pics for the mini2 Aus Calender of 2006 :)

Cheers

Robbo

I noticed that bent plate... wondered if the water did it :)
Yup for sure :p

I did a very slow run through to start with. All fine.

Did a hard run through, bent plate on the other side :p

Hey you two, for a moment I thought you were taking your car washing to a new extreme and doing it Elephant style.

* Hahahahahaha, the thought of Scotty and Smurf caressing and stroking their MINIs in the river :p *
LOL Al :p :p

Robbo,

Firstly, cheers - we had a blast taking them :D

Secondly, we checked the engine bays on both cars after the runs through the water - and surprisingly, there was no water visible anywhere in mine, and only spots in Jasons.

I probably wouldnt recommend you guys with lowered MINIs drive through there aggressively, but those of us with 'stockys' are, from todays experience, probably in the clear! :D

These are some of my other photos of the day.

Not as good as the water shots, we used Scotty's camera for those. He left mine in my car on the other side of the weir and wouldn't go back to get them, he might have got his feet wet.

The water shots are obviously the highlights :D :D
