916 takes 'Best in show' at AROC Southern day

Hi fellow 916'ers.
I just wanted to share my joy as my Cup (#42) picked up 2 nominations at Hever Castle yesterday (pride and joy + best in show) and ultimately won the best in show! Around 150 Alfa's turned up and I think it's really positive that the judges, in their prize giving speech, fully appreciated the design and recognised the future classic status of our cars :-)
Keep polishing boys!

Great news... My poverty free retirement plan is based on the value of my GTV increasing over the next 20 years!

nice meeting you Steve
Southern Alfa day like Cups it seams as mine got an award last year. Shame I did not come there in the Cup this time as I think it would have been a first for the two press car to be reunited.
Get in touch if you ever come up towards London and like wise if i come your way.

Ready for the meet.
Hopefully the weather will be acceptable looking at forecast.
I prepared the car today
Looking forward to a few shots of the two press car together for the first time I think
