cruise CONTROL

AIRPORT RUN - Friday Night Cruise - 12th October

It was great to see a mix of club members cars and non club members cars out on this cruise for a Friday night. We made our way out to the back of the airport where they have a car part just outside the runway. It was impressive to see all different planes coming in to land. Surprisingly, it was pretty full and we struggled to get a park. We had some food and donuts from the food truck then made our way back home.

Kris Anders Farewell Cruise - 18th October

I had the honour of attending Kris Anders funeral on the 18th of October, along with a group of other members of Eastside Cruisers members.

It was a real celebration of Kris's life, with many of Kris's friends and family from the Victorion Torana Club, the Torana Social Cruisers and of course Eastside Crisers turning up in our cars, just how Kris would of liked it.

Although I have known Kris for many years, I had the pleasure of learning many new things about him from the lovely stories that Nicole his partner shared that day.

Kris will be sadly missed, R.I.P Mate, I hope where ever you are there is plenty of tough cars and drag racing going on.

Public Brewery - Sunday Cruise - 28th October

One of the hidden treasures of Croydon is this awesome spot called "Public Brewery". As a club we have been there quite a few times and it has always been a good experience, especially this time around when we went and had a Sunday lunch there. We had a good turnout and the weather was fantastic. We made good use of the beer garden enjoying our cooked lunch that was pretty good value for money and kid friendly.

On a scale of 1 to 10 id be giving it an 8, it's a trendy little hang out!

Anyone coming to Friday 2nd November Photoshoot Cruise is bound to get some quality shots that would look great on display!
