You'll have to rely on someone else as my trademark panorama technique isn't working this time (too many sideways steps between taking photos :slapme).

On the plus side, if you want 36 shots of one side of the R8/R3/HHR "lane" I can post them (don't make me do this).

There are a few photos on the Past Events page of the website: http://rover200.org.uk/events/pastevents.html, in particular the award presentations.

Picked up a copy of Classic Car Weekly yesterday which includes an article by David Simister on his MG ZR and his visit to Roverfest.

It includes the line "... our ZR was waived through the gates and given a spot on the main showfield, alongside the other classics brought along by the Rover 200/Owners' Club" and a large pic containing his ZR and several of our cars.

Nice bit of exposure :D
