Was a fantastic day and the weather was even kind - thanks for organising Jeff. There was plenty to see and do - here's a few of my pics:

Then as Sarah alluded too, something a little orange and racey appeared. Lando Norris' McLaren F1 from last season:

And it wasn't the only race car there. Ash Sutton and Jack Goff's BTCC cars (Ash Sutton's still had the damage he got from battling at Thruxton on it):

Then there was the opportunity to sit in the pilot (or co-pilot's) seat in some aircraft like the C17 below:

And then the one I was really looking forward to at the end of the day and marshalled finely by Jeff - my GTR with the C17:

This one I love ............

Totally gutted that I was unable to attend this event - right up my street in all ways. Perfect weather too by the looks of it.

I really hope that this event happens again next year - no way I'm missing it next time round!

My thanks to those who came to the event yesterday - a fair drive for some of you, I know.

Entry to the venue was a little chaotic, but worked for us as we were early to arrive. Once parked up, we had over an hour to see the aircraft up close and get food and drink before the crowds arrived. It got very busy indeed by mid-afternoon, but I’m pleased to say that the cars got a lot of interest, parked as we were on the pedestrian route from the music/stalls/refreshment areas to the aircraft static display.

I think we should make every attempt to attend next year and I just hope that the date does not clash with anything else.

Jeff.
