BL Day, Nene Park, Peterborough, Sun 7th August

#1 Post by Paul_1978_yorks » Sun Jun 12, 2016 9:58 pm

Sorry if there's already a BL Day thread - couldn't see one already in existence….

So… I'm just sending off my application form for BL Day - I've put down that I'm bringing two cars, even though I haven't collected one of them yet :D

Also camping overnight….

I put down that I'm on the Rover 200/400 OC stand - that's assuming we're having a stand this year?

I will be there but unfortunately the Rover 214 sli won't be as it's still poorly with engine trouble. I will be in my Vel Satis.
but it gives me a chance to meet and greet some of the members.

Yes we'll be there.

There should be a good turnout, especially if the weather's good.

Lots to see :D
I like Twin Cams.... and Single Cams

I'm camping over this year! Does anyone know what facilities there are? Eg is there a toilet/shower block or whatever?

Portaloos on site (or toilet block open during the day a minute or twos walk away), but no showers, (unless you count jumping in the nearby lake!).

I'll be there with my SEI. This will be my ninth year. Me and three of my mates always stay on site overnight. :)

Not got any to hand but it's a big well run show, well worth a place on anyone's rally calendar.

That looks a pretty depressing turn out

Indeed. I'm in the photo (wearing essentially the same jacket and jeans I wore to BL day :blushing )

Considering we haven't really done the Autumn rally before (I believe?) and it was only a few hundred cars (small area really), 5 R8s wasn't a bad achievement. There would have been 6 but John had taken his Special Division vehicle on its maiden voyage that day...
