Thanks guys I had a fantastic day out! Nice to see you all too! I got back around 21:30 last night with only a broken oil pressure gauge (wire fell off) considering the 2.5 hour drive each way I'm well chuffed :D the parade lap was definitely a high light for me it was hilarious:D

Those photos are awesome! My personal favourite is me in front of a Ferrari :P

roll on next year :thumbup

Great day out!

Sorry we didn't really spend much time hanging out with our 126s, busy look at all the other stuff at the festival. My highlights of the show were the historic F1 cars driving around, the racing Mini that could hold its own up against Ferrari's etc and of course the parade laps at the end.

Big thanks for Pete, for organising it and for donating his ticket so we could actually go!

Great photos, Will, thanks.

What a Fantastic event this year, here's a video of the parade lap, I managed to hitch a lift with Adriano in his special Italian imported Fiat 500 with a very special engine which was really really torque and very impressive even with three up.

Thanks Pete for the ticket and thanks to everyone who made it.
Nice to put some faces to some names!

The weather was great and there were amazing cars everywhere. We went to the grid walk at lunch and ended up in the pit area instead. Everyone else was wearing VIP badges but the didn't seem to spot us! We were up close to all the F1 cars. I'll upload some photos later.

Angelo - Glad the mole grips done the job!

Well done to Pete for getting this organised and to all the guys & gals who made it there despite one or two problems, mechanical or memory  ;D. I have enjoyed all of the pics and videos so far and like Pete said at the top of this thread, "it's the big one" I recognised that exhaust note on Adriano's car as he came bye and took me for a run in his car. That engine is so well set up an the pull is quite amazing  :)
