Fantastic to see everyone today! A great day, cars all looked brillant. Stand was stocked to the point of being classed as a tuck shop.

Amazing job organising this!

I didn't take many due to phone issues. But here's a few.

Sorry I didn't really spend that much time on the Club stand! Time seemed to fly-by.

But with all the walking around I have got my first (and probably only) bit of "car-show" sunburn for 2020 :lol:

Simon and I actually walked round the GP circuit. I never realised just how much undulation there was on that bit of the circuit, it doesn't come across on TV.

James and I are crispy, Sarah was not happy with how pink we where when returning. I'm expecting her to strap suntan lotion to me on Wednesday!

I am amazed at just how much the elevation changes. TV and games really don't do it justice.

Attending on the day - 11x Mazda RX-8's, 1x Nissan 370Z nismo, 1x Toyota GT86 :P

Thank you for all coming and enjoying the day together at the very first Go Japan Car Show =D> =D> =D> =D>

A special thanks must go to my two partners in crime - Ian and Malcolm =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

Thank you to the members who helped set up in the morning and then take it all back down again at the end of the day =D> =D> =D> =D>

We attracted a lot of attention on the Stand because of the Yellow/Black Tape surrounding all the cars :lol:

Once again thank you for supporting this wonderful Car Club :thumleft:

Frist event since 2004 for me and first one for the kids. My recently turn one year old did well with all the loud cars going round the track etc so did my daughter while looking around all the cars on show to for the limited time we was there. Arrive around 12pm and had gotten to hot and sunny by 3pm as forgot to bring sun screen for the kids, now we all have a awesome t shirt sun tan line.

Was nice to put a few faces to user names although I think I missed the main bulk at the club stand by the time we was there plus didn't catch a few other members names I spoke to. I was going to move my R3 over to the club stand but it was at that point we realised how peachy colour we was looking without any sun block, so home time it was.

Track action was really good and dam there was some seriously fast Honda's going round track yesterday to. Only took two pictures of this tidy NSX as was to busy enjoying myself and watching the kids showing interest to snap away, apart from that just this one the Mrs sneaky took while we worked our way along to the club stand. (I was on push chair duty, white T shirt on the left.)

Well, we managed to get one car show in the calendar this year and certainly had the weather to enjoy it. I'm glad I slapped on some factor 30 suncream during the morning, hearing how others have fared - I burn very easily! Grateful thanks to Ian.M for bringing along the gazebo as we'd have fried without the much needed shade it provided. Thanks to GSB too for the massive supply of drinks and snacks! I must admit to liking those Red Leicester Mini Cheddars!

Thank you to everyone who attended and made it a great social(ly distanced) day out. It was good to meet and chat to those I'd met previously, but also to meet some others for the first time; Clint Wilson with his PZ, Hamish (Penguinracer2) and Errol with their lovely Phantom Blue Evolve and Ben (Begall) with his Sparkling Black R3, plus Goobie (+family). Good to see that they are all into taking their cars onto track too :thumleft: - I look forward to seeing Ben again very soon at Mallory Park in 2 days time (along with Ian.M, Harris-5310, Vj4sothername and GSB!).

I've got loads of pics, so just a few for now:

Glad to see it went so well. Especially pleased we did get one event in this year at least.

I can't understate just how much time and effort the Events Team put into organising these events, and this year particularly presented some difficult challenges which were dealt with very efficiently.

Big thanks to the ET, and to all the members who went along, it's all a bit pointless without you. =D>
