Disappointingly, having got my ticket for the show, I'm unable to attend due to an issue with my car (potential track rod issue - see posts in Technical forum), and I didn't want to risk a 200 mile round trip and cause more problems :-(

Missed you!

And several of the club members who were forced to sit on the 'naughty step' not having pre-booked....

We'll be talking to the organisers as it didn't seem to resolve any of the problems they said they were trying to overcome.
I like Twin Cams.... and Single Cams

Had a great time at Peterborough yesterday. I got 45.1mpg from my 216 Cabriolet on the 350 mile round trip in a day
