Today is set up day so we'll post some 'Before', ' During' and 'After' photos later.

The show opens at 10am tomorrow and continues until Sunday - who's coming along to see us? :D

I'm not able to get to the show this weekend unfortunately.
The Club Stand looks excellent. Hope you get lots of interest from everybody.

Brilliant John. As usual, you (and Jeremy) aren't in the photo and yet we all know you're both putting in the most. Paul (and Johnny) are in the photo - so at least some recognition for the stars!

I really liked the vehicle line up - only one stock R8 on the stand - with an SD3 and an R3 streetwise I think we've made the transition to the all-inclusive club :clapping

Sorry I couldn't be with you on Sunday for the tear down - I know the gazebo now means the requisite number of people is at least 4, but it looks like you had enough help. Sorry I missed the mince pies too :sad

Another great show presence and an absolute credit to everyone who contributes to the club and the 200/400 cause.

I had a quick chat with the owner of the race car when he picked it up after the show.

He plans to get it out and about to a few track days next year and a warm welcome will be extended to any club members who show an interest in it.

He plans to use the car to encourage the next generation of grassroots motorsport competitors :clapping

Glad everybody enjoyed it :D

It is tiring but very worthwhile and it stands us in good stead for the next two very busy years, with SD3/R8 anniversaries in 2019 followed by HH-R/R3 in 2020.
