Just wanted to say thanks to all those involved in the organisation of the 30th anniversary meet at the Silverstone Classic last weekend, especially Mick, Bruce, George, Will and Mark. To get just under a third of all the cars ever produced is quite an achievement 30 years on.

It was good to meet Mr Nakauchi and Dennis Nursey and see the Cadbury F3000 race car.

In the end we drove straight back to Edinburgh after the event although we had intended to stop. Hope Will got back to Inverness OK after his trials and tribulations over the weekend.

And the MBs featured in the photograph in the Programme for the Club Anniversaries, p 126. Well done!

Thanks Ashley,

Good to see you and Ann again and thanks for your support. Yes, MB14 performed faultlessly on the 600+ miles back up the road, as it did on the way down - it was just the bit inbetween that was slightly embarrassing! All will be explained in the next Slice/MESSage.

I have yet to go through the photos and see exactly how many cars we ended up with as we had some no shows due to circumstance but some additions at the last minute too.

What was really evident was the enthusiasm everyone had for their cars and the marque despite the trials and tribulations of running 30 year old cars!! What an overwhelmingly nice bunch of people to be amongst for a weekend.

As a taster, here are a few photos of the weekend.

Glad you made it back in one piece Will. I went straight up the M1 and avoided the M18 - longer but I think a lot quicker - no traffic problems.
