So, er...

Should we all 'synchronise watches' or something...?

What's the local weather forecast? Doesn't look too dry from south of the border!


This is how it should have come out of Torino!

For Lauder it's improving weather, light cloud by midday and 18c according to the BBC. Less than 20% chance of rain throughout the day so should be okish I reckon .. smile

I find BBC weather the most unreliable tbh!

Think it'll be warm at least much like today smile

Just got home and it was good to meet up with the Scottish contingent and thanks Simon for sorting out the admin side of things. Shame about the weather but could have been a lot worse. The exit from the show at close of play may prove interesting as I almost got bogged down when I left at 1400hrs .. shocked

Looking forward to some pics smile

I'm just gutted i denied El Bravo the chance to shine in the parade ring
( they eventually called for anything Italian lol)

I was too busy making sure I got front row for the dancing girls after,
Priorities lol

was last man standing when I left at 4 and yes road wasn't great and traffic wasn't moving much

Delayed my exit to have a 20 minute ride along in a early 90's Lotus
For £15 for charity which I thought was fair enough
Just made me more determined to get a turbo coupe

Well worth the trip up north for what turned out to be an unexpectedly huge venue, with vehicles from every decade since the year dot!

Great to meet you all, old friends and new, and looking forward to the Riverside meet in July.


This is how it should have come out of Torino!

Agreed, a great day, enjoyed meeting some old and new faces. Great turn out of cars and enjoyed getting our coupes into the parade.

70 pounds worth of petrol through my coupe in 24 hrs. Well worth it, thoroughly enjoyed

Yeh agreed as above. It was a great day out and super turnout from the coupes from near and far.

and a big thanks to Simon for his organising of it oh and to the surprise parade laps at the end.

Now for the clean up of the underside of the coupe.
