I’m aiming to arrive between 9.00 and 9.30am. Usually we all park together so hopefully the same this year :)
I'll be there about the same time. The marshalling is usually good enough but having a 20ft high flag to aim for usually helps too :D

And it's not the 'quality' of the car people come in (but it's always nice to see a well looked after car), it's the fact you're there that's important :clapping

See you tomorrow!

I made the mistake of washing the car on Friday, and now it’s covered in dust. :bored

When I booked the club stand, I was advised that we would be allocated enough space to accommodate all of the cars whose owners had put our club name on their booking form :)

I am sure we will be able to squeeze everybody in.

I hope to be there between 9.30 and 9.45

Sorry for the fail to show - old man bad back syndrome, more's the pity. Will be going to Peterborough to make up for my slackness.

Good show as always but I found the hot weather tricky to deal with.

Anyway, here is an album of pics from today:

Yes I thought it was a great show, I wonder if Peteborough's BL rally will better it?

The heat got to me too and prevented me staying until the end, even inside BMM was very warm!

Thank you to everybody who came to the show to make it such an enjoyable day.

It was great to see so many of our cars together again and meet all the owners.

We we're given much room but we made the best of it!

Roll on more summer shows :clapping
