The "Pink Ladies" Tractor Run and Barbeque, Thorpe Abbots, Norfolk - 7th July 2013

Started in 2004, the "Pink Ladies" tractor run involves (mostly) vintage tractors trundling around the Norfolk countryside from and back to Thorpe Abbots Airfield. 2004 had 50 tractors taking part whereas 2013's run saw around 160 drive the route, from "little grey/pink Fergies" up to humungo MB Tracs, the odd giant John Deere and everything in between - all decked out in pink. To celebrate the fact that the run passes by the front of their house, the Mikey P massive hold a barbeque in their garden. Firstly though, Isobel and Fred are off to "that there London" to meet up with Brussels Jules and Natan.
