I saw 3 other Elans (not as many as last year) including hatman from here.

For those who haven't been to Brooklands - the first purpose-built motorsport venue anywhere in the world - the banked track is quite awesome. It's hardly possible to stand up towards the top of the bank, and it's hard to imagine the bravery needed to drive aero-engined tractors along there at close to 150mph.

It was good to see you yesterday Paddy; Anne and I spent quite some time admiring your car. Very, very nice. There's a whole lot of photo's of the meeting on the 'Events' section of Pistonheads if anyone would like to see what they missed.
