    Hi Bruce,

    Unforunately no other McLarens but I do have a Ferrari 250 Lusso, 2 x Noble M12s and maybe a third/Porsche turbo. Two race tuned Imprezas, with 800bhp and 340, driven by very competent race drivers. Becky Bethcox in her race car, another BMW race car. A dax Rush, Spire GTR a couple of Ultimas including a spider, a TVR Sagaris and an Ariel Atom.

    we also have various car clubs coming who will be situated in the Control Tower car park, GTR club, South east Scoobies, VW Campers, Ford Focus STs.

    As Static display we have quite a few Ferraris with a couple of 458s, some classics including a DB6 but no Lambos as yet. (Hint, hint)

    So overall a fairly impressive line up!

    A week and a half to go hoping that the weather holds.

    Very much lookig forward to seeing you on the day and thanks again for your support.

    Two days to go and can't wait. This is promising to be some event.

    Please come along and support us we will be very glad to have you.

    For those that have helped put the word out we are running at 3.5k profit prior to the day so I thank all of you who have helped or contributed and look forward to meeting you on that day.

    One last thing - DOES ANYBODY HAVE A 458 OR KNOW SOMEBODY THAT DOES, Please?

    Kind regards
    Simon

    Dear All,

    I cannot thank those of you enough for your support today and I do apologise for not getting around to meeting everybody but my day was a little hectic to say the least!!
    Many thanks to Bruce as my star of the day - everybody wanted to go out in the McLaren - shock horror.
    Thanks to Mark for displaying his 599 and his phots on PH.

    Early indications are that we should have made circa 4.5 from Track Rides and Dream Rides, that's what I call a result.
    I'm happy knackered now and off to the pub.
    Bruce I owe you a beer or three, thanks again.
    Roll on next year.

    Hopefully I'll get to meet those of you that I didn't throughout the year and thoroughly look forward to it.

    Thanks again and thanks to CS for hosting the page and their generous donation. I will post up final tally as soon as we know it.

    Cheers

    Simon

    Happiness is a full tank and an open road - unless you live in the UK of course......

    It was a great day, no hope for some of us getting on track 11ob for Richard, when Bruce's 12C suffered a failed tyre valve after lunch I had the 599 noise tested to see if I could stand in while the AA sorted out Bruce, they wanted me to rev to 6.2k for the noise test, limit was 98db, at 5k revs the 599 hit 114db
