Looking forward to meeting you all tommorow. Will be driving down in the morning so keeping an eye out for a petrol station with a jet wash! I suspect all my prep work will be undone by wet roads. :thumbdown:

Will head to Shire Horse.

Thanks for everyone that turned up. Apologies for leaving so early but pouring rain and babies don't really mix. I've gotta say I was very disappointed by the show itself. One short walk to the toilet and I had seen everything worth looking at. Not impressive after a 2 hour drive and no lay in. I doubt we will return to this tbh.

As per Matt - thanks to everyone who joined us. As well as 'our' members we were delighted to share the stand space with folk from the BMWCC Cheshire/Staff Region who had some great cars and were equally great people.

I enjoy the chat etc at every event..............but we can't dress this one up as anything other than complete crap as a car event. The turn out was tiny (maybe 100 cars), I felt sorry for the vendors as the footfall was equally small. Laughably, we were awarded 3rd place in the Best Car Club display - we were probably the third of three car clubs actually evident and 2nd went to 7 old minis parked in a straight line. Not sour grapes - it's our first trophy after all!!
