Fastlane show. Hexham. 16th May 2015


Recommended Posts

It's been at Corbridge so long it's inevitable people will still turn up there. I'm going to suggest to Dave the organiser some kind of sign outside the old location!

In the garage no-one can hear you scream

@ Philip; Sorry you can't make it, and hope you enjoyed Wolviston.   CORBRIDGE WEATHER: So far it is expected to be .... DRY!!!!!    (Pack yer brolly anyway)

Well I've pm'd everyone on the contact list with the new address, and I'll try not to go to the old venue myself (you never can tell with me...). But yes, no doubt some folks will not have heard about the change.

 

I'm looking forward to see how the new venue pans out. The entrance/egress at the Dyvels could be a real nightmare, but there was a lot of space. At the end of the day though, if the weather's fine I'll be happy (and shocked).

Sorry to hear it mate. Not least 'cause I'll have to get sharpening some stakes and find a mallet! Or I could just wrap my car in the banner.

 

Don't worry I'll post some pics ( I think I've got a waterproof cover for my camera somewhere...).

They will have to be really sharp, I think it's a tarmac surfaced event

So my neighbour David (Esprit S4S), new member Maurice (Europa S), me (Esprit V8), and my back up entourage (Volvo estate, partner, kids and dogs) all met up at the local farm cafe on a sunny, showery, chilly Saturday in May. And off to the Hexham Fastlane Show we trundled.

The new venue proved to be ideal, although the logistics and directing of which marque goes where could have been better and I didn't feel there were as many exotic vehicles there as in previous years (or perhaps the site is just more compact). Still there was plenty on view from Porsche, Lambo, Ferrari, TVR, Chevy, et al. Land Rover and Range Rover had their place as did the "baseball cap backwards", hot hatch mob hidden in the back lot. There were plenty of Loti, mostly Elises, and some rarer models such as the 340R brought by dealer LotusNewcastle. We chatted with the owner and his mechanics and were impressed with their enthusiasm for the brand. There was live music from a band, plus the usual automotive gear, refreshments, and charity stalls.

All in all a very enjoyable show; credit to organiser Dave, and his team. The weather was reluctantly just about acceptable this year, and I think the show will improve now they have the measure of the site. I'm already looking forward to next year!
