This has to be one of the worst "look at me I won a trophy" posts ever.



Just joking. Great to meet you and to park next to you, until you went into the winners enclosure. Well deserved, lots of effort gone into making that so much lighter.

Maybe meet up next time I am over. Will try to do some more Europe trips, now I have the legs for it.

Gentlemen many thanks for all the kind words and urine-extraction.
TJW964 great to saddle up next to you at the show. Please strap a horn on one of your donkeys when you come over next as my 6 year old is absolutely crazy about unicorns Wink

Richard - thanks for the hospitality and congratulations on the trophy - it is a wicked sounding car. BTW - great convoy guidance skills. Thumb

Thanks to Terry for all the work that was involved in organising this and keeping it all flowing and for the Pagoda - a great place to eat. Thanks also for the little 'Terry Tours'

Thanks to Askgeez for bringing 'No Euros' Gary worship and managing to get back to the Uk with no petrol. ( I couldn't work out why Terry flashed to take the lead and then slowed it down at the end, until he told me you were on fumes.)

Thanks to JD and Speedtrap for entertainment on who was the maddest in a car Surprised

Thanks to James for being able to talk farming produce talk with Adrian my passenger and for 'forcing' me to go fast on the way back from the show

Thanks to everyone else that I may not have mentioned for being a great crowd. I loved it, loved the country and will definitely be back next year.

Also thanks to the black 52 plate altered mini on the M20 on the way home for playing - I thought I was back on the Autobahn for a moment - nearly got my arse kicked Rolling Eyes

PS - I was back 20 mins and my son says "have you booked festival of speed yet" - so I did that this morning! Cool

I think this one won best in show, 30th Anniversary:



Common as muck those Purple Viola cars. Nothing to do with the fact it had only covered 7,400KM Surprised I'd have failed it for having the incorrect wheels.

There was however a 'discussion' whether he should be allowed to joing the 993 Illuminati but the other members were too busy to vote having a fault diagnosis masterclass in the other paddock. Counselling services were being sought after some of the 'results' were disclosed what

I must admit that this silver '25 bagger' made a bit of a change from the usual purple VWs on display.

An (air-cooled) man can never have too many sandals (the socks have a nasty habit of wearing them away from the inside)

Actually this year I had a good room with walk in wet room shower ...... But still didn't get any "sandals" with the room ...... Mind you most of my time was spent at the bar so the shower was a highlight of my room experience ....... But I was hard pushed to be the first there ..... But I was up to speed to being one of the last to leave ....... No names no pack drill ...... But the "Commander" has much to answer for ....... Wink
