I didn't get one, but did receive the entry details, and the 'no hooning' email yesterday. So I think their systems must be a mess. If you're not attending Chris then there should be space on the stand for Derek even if his registration didn't work as we'd have a space free. Assuming I've got that right.
EDIT: Forgot to add that the stand print off didn't look personalised to me.

For anyone without a visitor ticket they've stopped online ticket sales. I'll buy mine at the gate.

Attention Everyone



Tickets can be bought on the Gate for £25.00 :thumleft:

Those of you who bought tickets in advance, either print them off or show the e-ticket email as proof instead. Please make sure on arrival that you're showing your Blue Zone Pass, so as the Go Japan Staff can point you in the right direction as you go through the gates :thumleft:

All the usual hot and cold drinks, cakes along with bacon and sausage rolls will be available on the stand as per usual :thumleft:

Afraid Nigel hasn't been very well within the last few weeks, so won't be standing around trying to park all of you in the morning, so please park on the stand in a sensible fashion taking into account that it's not just your car that needs the parking space, but another 19 need to park aswell :!:

Ian, Malcolm and Nigel are all looking forward to seeing you on the day :thumleft:

Once again, many thanks for all your support for this event =D> =D> =D> =D>

I'm happy to slide all the way to the back with my boring stock RX8. Am bringing a fridge and camping battery so then I can keep those out of the way.

Please don't rain. I've spent 7 hours on the car today and still not finished :roll:

The support car is filthy, as been busy dealing with Mum again :!:

So if any of you have waterless cleaning equipment, then feel free too spruce the car up for me [-o<

It's Ceramic coated 8)

I will pay you in kindness :kiss:

A very enjoyable day at Brands. Great to meet and chat to the regulars and lovely to meet and put faces to some new names.

The club has won yet another award for "best presented stand". Quite an achievement, given the number of clubs represented at Go Japan.

Ian Mothersole collected the award on behalf of the club.

Jester's stunning yellow RX-7 FD Bathurst Type R was joined by Adam's equally stunning, slightly older, Montego Blue Type R.

Very well done to all who participated and especially to the bright spark who thought of the parking arrangement using the large space available.

Sorry, a bit late posting up here.

Just want to add my thanks to everyone for contributing to the Best Presented Stand!

Here's my photos from the end of the day (apologies if you had already left by then).
