I'm expecting to be asked how many spaces we might be expecting to fill, so I'd like to prepare an answer.

Looking back in the thread it looks like:-
1) Mr Teddy Bear
2) Scrumpy
3) 220GSi Turbo
4) GTiJohn (that's me)
5) 1234dist
6) Carl747
7) Red Icon
8) Nudge

Any more, or less ?

Should I be asking for some more based on turnout at previous shows? Has anybody got any figures from previous years or any photos to count from?

Both billibob and sadclubdave said they hope to attend, so it might be save to ask for a few more spaces than needed.

What car has Billibob got now, the cabby has gone and I believe he bought a CLK, or a Merc in other words. He won't get in with that!

Unfortunately our holiday overlaps PoL by a few hours, so I won't be there after all. (sailing in from France late pm)

Hi Steve, the marshalls should be organised enough to point you to the right area. There is no restrictions to who can park there - the more the merrier :D

All - I've requested 20 spaces so I hope we fill them. I've also asked that we're next to the coupe mob :laughing2

Would hope the marshals are a little better than last year. If I remeber harkins77 saying he turned up in his 620 and they tried to turn him away because they didn't think his car was a rover. :slapme
