Might be worth mentioning that it's free to enter a car this year presumably to encourage the damp souls who ventured there the past 3 years. You do need to register in advance though;

In the garage no-one can hear you scream

You can just turn up and be waved through in to the show area for free if you're driving exotica (yes, an esprit counts!). Look forward to seeing you all there next week!

Well I'm all ready. MOT, insurance, tax, polish. Phew. The forecast is for rain towards the end of the weekend, so lets just hope it holds off for the show....

Might be there if the weather is ok... :unsure:

Marge: Homer, I don't want you driving around in a car you built yourself.

Homer : Marge, you can either sit there complaining, or you can knit me some seat belts...

Well, it didn't rain! Although there was a biting wind.

We met up with Martin in his S4 and headed into the show, passing Phil (I think?) on his way home . I counted six Esprits in total including ours (photos to follow) and an Evora. We bumped into a neighbor of mine who had recently bought a blue S4S, and the three Esprits together looked superb, see below. How about a Lotus NEEG flag for next year Bibs?

There were plenty of marques there, much to see and do. Only the chilly weather cut our day out short.

The three of us left in a convoy following two Lambo Countachs, making a fine procession through Corbridge. All in all a great show.

Photos as promised...

Hi, yes it was me :welcome: :welcome: :welcome:

Sorry I missed you all, I was hoping to catch up with Martin as I had my Laptop & Freescan with me but unfortunately I had to leave a bit earlier than I thought. I had been there since 9.30am ( set off at 8.20am ) though & I was out last night until 1ish :beer:

Really enjoyed the show but it was bloody cold in that wind !

Hopefully catch up sometime in the future.

Phil

It's difficult to get everyone together at the same time, so we did pretty well under the circumstances.

What we need is a long, hazy, hot summer's weekend where we can all get together in some nice location with great refreshments. Oh. That'll be the Fastlane show with good weather then!

If we want good weatherI think it may have to be a lot further South, Spain for instance !?

I've given up with our weather, sat here typing this it sounds like November outside with the wind howling & it feels like October temperature wise :thumbdown:
