Unfortunately, due to V6 and gearbox matters as reported in my blog, I shall be very unlikely to make it this year. The only thing that will see me there is heavy and prolonged rain over the weekend, preventing me from working....

Im still going, driving down on friday, which isnt looking too good ... Aparently there is a weather warning out for heavy rain this friday and its friday the 13th too ... :lol:

Still im only driving down to the hotel for the night, around 180 miles from here, not too bad but its going to be a busy day friday.

Was going to take the red Xm, but think its going to be the C5 estate now. Ill be in the classic show both days, as well as the MPH, will be having a good look around the CCC stand.

We should have been a bit more organised and had a get together :lol:

Ill post up some pictures of the event at some point. It was well worth going though. I spent two days there and still dont think i saw everything in the 5 halls. :?

Yes i saw it, took quite a few pictures too, but didnt notice you near it while i was around there. It looked great, nice to see it there. The CCC stand was very interesting, as always, very nice to see the concepts.

Its a long weekend isnt it, we took the 6 wheel C15 van last year. Still its nice to be able to get in before everyone else and look around without the crowds :)
