Ok folks, now that all that fuss of the fat fella coming down ya chimney and you've just about finished off all the chocolates, it's time for our first meet of the new season

First off is a wonder around the Donington collection museum

http://www.donington-park.co.uk/abou...ix-collection/

We shall meet up at 10:00am (as that's when the doors open )

Second on the menu is a quick tootle to the The Three Horse Shoes in Breedon for some much awaited scram

http://www.thehorseshoes.com/

So let's have a show of hands and amount of people in your party so I can get a table booked for 12:30 at the pub

Thanks in advance

That's a quick visit to see the GP collection, two and a half hours!

I visited a few years ago and my "quick" visit lasted four hours, and I need to go back, missus was very, very unimpressed, good job there is seating around the place.

Bugger it. Really sorry guys, I've got to bow out his weekend.
Have had some last minute crap turn up that I can't get out of.

Am getting my 159 powerflex'd on friday too... was really looking forward to giving it a good spin this weekend and for the christiana cuddles.

Will keep my eyes open for the next event...
