I could get it down to Leicester(ish) and then either take to the Milton Keynes show on 25th Sept or drop it near to you next time we do a family run down to Wilts :)
Hopefully dist will bring the spoiler to Manchester and if you could grab it off him and I'll pick it up off you at Milton Keynes that would be great. :D

Good to see some of you guys at Manchester. Heading home now. Doesn't look like I'm the only one going and coming back on Sunday.

ps shout out to Paul (220 GSi Turbo) for having a two hour+ drive there and two hour drive back to coordinate despite not exhibiting a car - top man.

Probably not quite what you are hoping for, but here are a few that I took during setup. :angel

Because our stand has the 'X-Factor' it is difficult to get all four in the same shot, but the layout works really well whichever way it is approached from. We have a walkway on three sides and a solitary Ford Anglia 105E club representative on the other.

There are two more R8s in the show: Howard (cabriolet106) has his silver Cabriolet in as a private entry in the 'posh' hall with black carpet, and Matt (bigmatt1975) has his Nightfire 416 on the North West BL Enthusiasts stand not far from ours.
Big thanks go to Howard for bringing the flag and other props with him and for his help with building everything :clapping

The show today has been fairly quiet but still spoken to a few people about the cars on the stand. Nick Craig and myself have manned the stand today so there has been opportunity for us all to go for wander around.
Hopefully busier tomorrow.
