the bigsi event


Recommended Posts

well my father and grandmother were here for quite some time today, it was extra special for me as i havent seen my grandmother for at least 23 years now since she went to australia.

my fathers side of the family are all blue blood and peerage and therefore extremely posh!. The lotus was under its cover today as it was raining and my father was a little more than curious as to what was under the covers etc. I spent an hour with him and my grandmother talking about nothing but you guys on here and all over the world.

i explained in great detail everything that had happened since new years eve, showed them all the pictures, from top gear, and the castle combe event, they also looked at the presentation book and all the news articles i have printed off from bbc etc sites.

My father is a classic car nut and loves old cars so he loved looking over everything, hes coming back tomorrow and if the weather is ok im taking him out in the car and letting him have a drive also as i know that will make his day.

Anyway the point of the post is that they were both amazed at what you all did for me and the support shown, my grandmother is a lady of few and very choice words but she did congratulate you all on what you had accomplished. My father said that " mr chapman would be proud to know the mark is held in such high esteem and tradition even now" and in true posh words he described it as "marvellous".

as always im deeply humbled by this and will always be

i thought i would share today with you all

Never knew you were of such noble stock, Simon.

Glad your father liked the car and I hope he enjoys the ride.

Is he as big as you because, if he is, will both of you fit?
