They sent me another email with a direct link to my pass etc (I've printed the original one they sent as I did receive it). Is there a particular arrival time to aim for (other than the 'before 10am' on the instructions)? If not I'll tell my brother to be ready to get there for about 9am.

Got my e ticket. Are we going in as a group? There’s a Waitrose a couple of hundred yards south of the club entrance, might be a good place to meet?

Hi Paul, not sure re meeting up but we plan to get there around 9.30 as not sure where we are situated but the orgnaisers seem to have everything sorted. Look out for the yellow mazdarotaryclub flag which we hope to put up. I think there is limited space so will not be putting up a gazeboo.

See you all on Sunday.

I’m here today, Saturday, too.

It’s very well organised. Enter via the gate on the eTicket postcode, hazard lights on at the gate so they know you’re in the car club area, follow the marshals with blue t-shirts, they have someone with a stall map at the enclosure entrance and the plots are well marked out.

The first bit of road/track is a bit rough though.

But leaving was a pain.

The compound is at the furthest point from the exit/entrance and the organisers wanted to block us from leaving until the queues had died down . . . .

Even when we got away the marshals gave priority to the other queues, so we took over 45 mins to get to the public roads. Once out we had no delays,although we were going South and the exit direction suited us right to the ground.

That was a good day out, thanks to Clive and Lisa for arranging the stand etc. =D>

So it turns out the car show aspect was arranged by the Club LeMons people who posted on here a while back (I found the thread) about buying a sports car for under £2500 and then going through a series of challenges to decide which was best while also raising money for charity - one of them bought a PZ which did very well in their competition and a couple of them came to the Cobham meet on one occasion. The car show is a direct result of that original challenge.

Back to yesterday, I seem to have stood out in the sun a bit too long judging by the colour of my nose. My brother has posted a few photos on Facebook, I'll see if I can get copies and I'll paste them here if I can.

What a day! Shame the weather wasn't a little brighter, but at least it improved towards the end of the day and it was dry.

Well done to Lisa for finding this event and arranging a stand. We would definitely do this again, or a similar day at Duxford, etc.

Having never been to Biggin Hill before, it was a fascinating day out from a historical perspective, and the air displays were absolutely awesome =D>
I have never seen so many Spitfires together, on the ground, or in the air. A great variety of other aircraft were there too - I don't think I've ever seen a Blenheim flying before!

Great to meet everyone, sory if I only spoke to some people very briefly, as there was so much to go and see. Gwyn and I spent very little time on the Club Stand - this was much more of an "air" day then a "car" day for us. I took loads of pics and have only just started to look through them, but this one caught my eye (not bad for a budget 10 year old Nikon SLR and £120 Sigma 70-300mm zoom!):

Nice one Malcolm, it looks similar to one of Geoff's on Facebook, but I've only glanced quickly at his (10 or 15 photos) as I flicked through so far. I have to agree on the Spitfires, I didn't know there were so many still flying. Geoff and I did have to laugh towards the end having gone from the usual awe of seeing a Spitfire to when we joked 'not another **** Spitfire, is there nobody about who flies something else?' :lol:

^^ I've just found Geoff's pictures on Facebook and I have to say his collection is better than mine. I have some similar shots, but not as quite as sharp or well lit. My hat off to Geoff, some really superb shots there =D>

So here is a selection of my brother's photos from Sunday (Nigel, please don't archive this for a while so people can get a chance to see what was going on in case they fancy coming next year if Clive and Lisa arrange a stand again)

There are some moody clouds as backdrop to some lovely photos there Brian. Do you know if they are straight-shot photos or filtered / post-processed in some way?

Brian, they are awesome photos. (Maybe you can invite him to a few track days, to take some photos in exchange for a couple of bacon sarnies.....? ;) )

Gutted I didn't make the effort to get to this now, the Spitfires would have stolen the show for me. #-o

Cracking pics, definitely processed, but very well done I'd say. 8)
