I'd love to go as I'm thinking of booking into FiftyFive prior to putting mine up for sale soon, I'm just too busy this weekend and won't be able to make it.

Yay We're aiming for a 10am start, do the safe wash demo etc and some photos, then BBQ for lunch I'll be around from 9am.

Slightly vexing that tomorrow is going to be scorching and we have showers predicted for Saturday, but hopefully they will just blow over.

Why can't my calendar fit in with yours?
Looks like 3rd July I'm down to Best Western Tiverton for five days.

It was a good day today A few showers which brought lots of dust with them, but Nicola and Bert managed to get in the safe wash demo and hopefully lots of knowledge transfer during the breaks in the weather

Big thanks to Mike for doing the bbq, and to all that attended Bert took loads of pictures for the magazine article - hopefully he can share a couple of those in due course. I only got a couple but 7 D2s is a pretty good turnout, even if two of them are mine The murple lurking on the left doesn't count as it doesn't work.

Biggest D2 turnout for at least three years - and not exactly central either. Nice one

Great day and a pleasure to meet you all, was also good to get the S8 out for a longer drive for a change.

Excellent cars, food and company
