looks like a great event - sadly a bit far for me.
The accompanying auction should get a bit of interest - nice elan too.

I enjoyed it a couple of times some years ago but the high price of entry now makes it an absolute luxury unless you manage to save money on buying things you do need at a 'Show price'

"(and I'm not a rally fan)"

What about Lotus Elan rally cars, then? :wink:

I am informed that it costs 37GBP to watch 22 Africans kicking a pig's bladder around at my local stadium for 94 minutes. 20GBP seems a bargain, just to see the rally cars in action (and I'm not a rally fan). :wink:



Very fair comment Pete.
I'm amazed that Sheeple pay that much to watch those overpaid "sportsmen"!

Hi Everyone

I'll be there on Saturday. Went last year and it was excelent, only problem was I ended up spending far too much money on bit I just had to have. "Wall of Death" was really good

Regards
