I stood at Prescott Hill Climb taking photos of the VSCC event there when the heavens opened. Only if it's wetter than this would I think twice!

Afternoon Chaps

I've spoken with the landlord at The Fox, lovely chap and he's very happy to have us on Sunday.

I know the weather isn't looking too clever after 4pm. Are you guys still up for it?

Here's the most recent list:

1. Metrics (Asim) - D5
2. E24man (Kevin) - E34 B10 4.6 or B12 5.7
3. BarryM - B10 V8
4. Rubinho - B5
5. Hector's dad - D4
6. PhilV8S - B6S cab
7. CharlesM - B3 cab

I suggested 3pm on Sunday. Let us know on this thread if you're still in.

I'll look a bit of a plum if I turn up and sit in the corner on my Todd :oops:

If the forecast turns out to be accurate then I will have to give it a miss as a couple hundred mile round trip in the rain isn't a fun outing! If however the weather seems better than anticipated then I'll be there.

Cheers chaps, see you there.

Weather looking a lot more promising too (accordining to BBC weather). Hope you can make it Phil, long trek for you I know.

Thank you for a 100% turn out today chaps, appreciate you all coming along despite the rain and cold. Great to meet you all and put faces to names. Special mention to Phil who came all the way down from the Midlands. Didn't even get a chance to buy you a drink mate! Hope you all got home ok.

A really special line up of Alpina's I think you'll agree 8)
