I'd recommend bringing your own food tomorrow or buying from any on-site tuck wagon as the socially distanced café is rather slow and may get busy :angel

Sweatshirts please, if there are any in stock. One of each colour, but I'm not sure which size, probably L. Thanks, Duncan.

Nope, 'fraid not but there's usually at least one for big events like these

So, I was planning to bring the 618iS.......until I filled it with fuel and it promptly emptied a fair amount of it straight onto the forecourt of the filling station!

Back home and I’ve now got the SEi into life and taxed, I filled that up and unlike the ungrateful 600 it didn’t spill any of it :D

See you all tomorrow

I’m so sorry after all the work to the car this week I’ve woken up to loads of pain in my lower back.
I’ve been looking forward to going to the show

That was fun!

The place was full. We soon filled up our allocated space which meant some were in the overflow area. We reckon on twice the number who put their names down, as a rule-of-thumb, but there were even more than that this time.

I have no photos due to talking a lot so hopefully some one can post some here soon :cool I'll

Thank you to everyone who came :clapping
