Great event. Cheers!
Thanks to those who chatted until the early hours with me and Laurent. Working on buying a RX8 between us to track, but may take time to organise.
How does Laurent sign up for the Club??

Just arrived home. Left 0400 this am. That was a long day!
Thank you very much James for staying around until 19:30 in the cold and dark to ultimately drop me at the hotel.
As i said to you before, I had no where better to be :mrgreen:

No worries, I’d never have left you stranded. I’m just sorry I didn’t have the lorry there so I could have taken it home or to the hotel for you...

Great weekend, we were so lucky with the weather.

Thanks to everyone involved, it was worth the wait.

Thank you everyone for coming to this event and so pleased you all enjoyed yourselves =D> =D> =D> =D>

On hearing a BMW was going around the track :shock: , I wonder if next year they will allow me to take the Tesla around the track :lol:

Sorry to run out of food :( , but this is why it's most important that we know the exact amount of people turning up in the cars #-o

Next years Car Show will be even better =D> =D> =D> =D>

Once again thank you for your support to this wonderful car club :thumleft:

Another thankyou to everyone who organised, set up and attended the weekend. Never ceases to amaze me the quality of folk on this little corner of the internet and the array of different walks of life we are all on, yet one mutual decision to buy a certain triangular Japanese sports car led to this :mrgreen: :mrgreen: NUTS. 🙃

The weekend didn't go without its casualties although I'm confident all will be rectified (Chris). Otherwise, we all learned plenty more new names and faces along with some crucial life skills (we don't just clean the front face of our wheels).

All in all, an exceedingly enjoyable time had by all. I hope we all got home safely.

Roll on the next AGM =D> =D> =D>

I posted this in the other thread, may as well repeat it here ;) ... Nice photos everybody. Thanks to all those involved in organising everything =D> and to everybody for the good company. :thumleft:

After dropping Chris off at Castle Combe at about 10am with his car and exhaust and to wait for recovery (I hope that went well Chris [-o< ) I took a very much cross country route home thanks to my satnav (it didn't exactly take me the way I'd planned :roll: as kindly worked out by Chris before I left him at the circuit) in my effort to avoid the M4 and missing the diversion signs again.

I got home about 10.30pm ... but this time not because I got lost. [-X I was driving through Ewell thinking what I needed to do when I got home when I remembered (as I passed the end of her road) that I'd been invited to a friend's birthday celebration which was starting at 2pm. It was 2.15pm so as I was in the wrong lane to turn off I went all way round the roundabout and stopped off for drinks and food and even more socialising. :D

Thanks to all the organisers, and everyone for generally being helpful. Great to put faces to names finally,. And it was brilliant to finally getting the old gal onto the track, it won't be the last!.
The traffic back to Ipswich was a bit crap, but the car was faultless. I A Happy tired bunny all round.
