of us leaving Friday woke up to a lovely hot day. The journey down
was unbearably hot though and took almost 5 hours and some of us
could be seen walking up and down the M1 between the cars as the
traffic stood at a complete standstill in the blistering heat!
Once we landed
tents and gazebos were quickly assembled then the chill-out weekend
began as loads more spectacular motors arrived and stands began
to fill up.
The rest of
the crew arrived Saturday and our stand had an impressive array
of different Jap cars which attracted lots of people, many getting
snap happy and stopping to chat about various modifications and
car specs; (which Andy and Sweeps between them had organised into
frames on the cars giving a more professional touch to the stand).
rain though it was still warm and we had to dive about between showers
to dismantle the tents and stand. After a final look round the vast
array of stands and impressive machinery we hit the road, heading
back to York after a most enjoyable weekend! Thankfully the return
journey took a fraction of the time the outbound one had taken!!
the weekend include Anna suffering Friday night and claiming it
was the marshmallows that caused it (as opposed to the drink etc
she had consumed….) then her getting left at the services
as everyone forgot about her! Amy managed to lock the keys in the
Micra so that we had to break into it on the Saturday morning after
borrowing a car break-in kit off a helpful Scooby driver nearby!
Drew slating a Micra on the MSC stand when the owner was right next
to him also deserves a mention! Roll on next year!
