Stemo,
Thanks for organising it, had a nice run down with Mark and Andy, straight over to the drifting then to the Merlin, did you see the blue Ascona with some sort of (I presume) V8 run down the strip? and the MK1 Manta, and the Jet car, and the Fiat 126 with a Toyota turbo engine and wheelie bar, and the Moggy traveller V8 plus blower, ....................  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Great day, sorry our paths didn't cross but hopefully you saw the Monza parked up.

Cheers, Craig

Not a problem Craig! I did, there was some awesome machinery there. That Ascona was a favourite of mine. I did your Monza - was looking superb! I spent a lot of the day walking round and also with a couple of mates who were running cars (Blown MG B and Methanol Slingshot dragster). Maybe catch up with you properly at Billing?

Did miss catching up with a few people that were there so apologies if I didn't see you! It was quite a busy day and didn't end up leaving till 5.

Thanks for coming all, maybe do it again next year if everyone fancies it nearer the time  :).

It was a good day, good company, fantastic motors, (ribcage and ear drums still shaken from that jet-drag car doing the qtr mile in 5 seconds!!!) weather was great, and the Gsi never missed a beat on the journey there and back.

Got some pictures here (Steve, shall I pop them on this thread or make another one?).

Just a selection I took before my camera decided to start playing up, got a few more on my phone which I will copy off tomorrow.

But for now...
