Yep - but it’s cheaper to pre-book as it’s per car normally but per person on the day.

Absolutely gutted :(

Hope you all have a great time, and see you next year

Surely you have another Scimitar to come in?

Sorry to see that Roger. But at least they sent a recovery truck in team colours!

I'm missing out on Curbs this year again! I'm working tomorrow and my GTE is still not finished!

I had heard there may be some new 5a shield badges being sold over the weekend? if anyone is in a position to buy some for me and post them that would really help. Can sort out funds via paypal.

If your in a position to help please send me a pm!

Less than you might think!

Only the SS1, and the camping equipment won't go in that (and in any case, I couldn't get the camping stuff out of the Yellow Peril, as it's in the smallest of my rented garages, because that one has a level entry, so it was the only one we could push the Yellow Peril into last night).

Then the mulberry car has been sulking for a while - it's rather a long saga, but basically I seem to have had far to many things on at once to focus on fixing that, as long as I had two that worked, so it's been a bit on the backburner. While my back was turned, the MOT ran out, which now adds an extra level of complexity to fixing it. You may have noticed I was in the Yellow Peril at Silverstone, for that reason (and it was working fine then).

So I'm now only one car away from becoming a pedestrian......
