Yeah big thanks to Neil, Charles, Gary & everyone else who were involved behind the scenes to make it a great day. Great to hear from Andreas as well.

This was my first meeting, the highlight of which was meeting Mark Adkins who knew the Guy who originally did the modifications to my B2.5 & went on to tell me that my car was originally built as a Frank Sytner Demo which was good to hear.

It was great to meet old friends again & talk to new ones. There were a couple of the regular members who I did not manage to speak to so my apologies for not saying Hello, namely Simon Alcorn, Chas, Hap & E24man.

Hopefully we can speak more next time.

Cheers,

Thanks again to Gary, Neil and Charles for their time in organising a great event. Was worth the circa 850 mile round trip! Home now with even more fly rash on the front! Great to put some faces to names.

Not sure about that but it was featured in a magazine shootout (possibly Autocar) written by David Vivian who now writes for EVO

Thanks to Neil, Charles, Gary and all at Sytner for a great weekend from both Nyle and myself.
Nearly 1000 mile round trip, with every mile smiling (some more than others :wink: )

The highlight for me was seeing the brace of B4's in the flesh 8)

That was the first time my C1 had been out in 2 years!
Steady drive there...... But get it a few squirts on the way home and it ran very well I must say
Met some great people
Thanks chaps.

Big thanks to everyone, had a great day out, really enjoyed it.
And on the way back on M11 saw three Z1's driving together, that's quite a rare sight anywhere.

Cheers :D

Indeed!!! 8)
It was good to stretch the D3's wheels a bit....
It rained on the way back to...Rainchester though... :lol:
I think you stretched the wheels of my D3 on the bypass when you took it for a spin!

Great fun all round, good to see all new and some again
