Hi All, This is only my 2nd year in the concours scene and as I've stated before, I'm amazed at the lack of entries even though there are some fantastic examples out there. I'd certainly be in favour of a "Best in field" award or "Best car as voted by visitors or other members" and I reckon the take...

Hi Roger et al, I too was concerned at the lack of concours entrants on the Curbs Sunday considering there were many, many fabulous examples sat along the paddock road and in the car park. Maybe a reiteration of the concours rules should be in Slice or on the forum to promote/generate more interest?...

Great news about Blue Thunder!
Although I've been in the Club for 15 years, I've never actually seen "BT" in the "flesh" as it were!
Fingers crossed that Bev gets it ready in time to come out to play this year!

Blue Thunder

Hi All,
Was aimlessly wandering around Dave Pooles website last night (Great site BTW Dave :D ) and was watching Bev Fawkes in Blue Thunder.
Question: Does anyone know of what has happened to Blue Thunder over the last few years and does Bev still own/run the car competitively?

Cheers

It's a bit ore posh than our last 'van...
