No it's just me trying to wind Jonny up.

I don't know what the judges will be looking for but personally I'm not inflating my tyres with 'Norfolk air' just to keep it original  :D

I might try that Norfolk air trick, hopefully it will sway the judges! Getting some 'period correct' 1981 Norfolk air is going to prove more of a challenge I fear!

 

How about if I asked Mike Kimberley to inflate them by mouth? Worth a shot.

 

:D

That's a massive turn out!

 

I'm just hoping my Turbo will be ready in time to defend its title (if there's still a 1974-1996 category ;))

 

fingers crossed

Very sadly it looks like my Turbo isn't going to make it. Very disappointing for me. But circumstances have conspired against me.

It has been my goal for some time to get the car ready for the 10th so I'm very disappointed. I won't be naming and shaming but I do feel a bit let down. The car is so nearly there now, its agonizing. I've been waiting for some adjustable top links for the rear suspension to get the rear wheel geometry spot-on and heard today that they won't be ready on time.

 

I'll still be coming but will be in the Exige instead, so no great hardship. With a race at Silverstone on the Saturday it would be a severe logistical pain in the backside to go and get the Esprit and I don't think its a great idea to be driving it for hundreds of miles with incorrect geo. So time to hoist the white flag!

 

Hopefully it will be all sorted in time for Castle Combe on the 23rd.

 

Great that Dom's bringing the GTE, I saw that in a car park at the services on the M25. Looked absolutely amazing, it will be a show-stopper for sure!

Can all Concours people please print this off, fill it out and bring it along with you.

 

Show it to the marshal when you arrive and they'll direct you to the parking and then leave it in your car (on the seat, face up please) so we can see your number if required. Thanks.
