That would be excellent, GTV is going for MOT on Friday so I will be finishing the brakes off.

Much appreciated, Alex

Nowt too major, just the turbo pipe has split cos it rubs on the engine mount. Got a temporary fix over the weekend as the pipe still hadn't arrived yesterday and it was ordered on Tuesday! Will defo be there now though!!

I popped over for an hour or so. Good display of cars (old and new), great display from the Ferraris. I dont think the GTA would have looked out of place, so I might have to offer it up for next year.....

Disappionted that I left before the Ferrari 'Scud' crashed in to the bales after giving it down the straight.

Saw a blue GT parked next to the Clydesdale bank with Alfaowner stickers, there were a couple of Alfas in the main car park a nice Brera and 164 v6 of note.

the ferrari got binned when it was in a pursuit race with the Tesla electric sports car, to be fair it was being given a run for its money.

the blue GT was me!

I am hoping footage of the bump lands up on youtube, there were enough people filming the awful stunt show.

I was there too. Stayed for most of the show and because I got the early I got 2 laps in the Diablo! and the GF got 2 laps in the Gallardo. Very happy about that.

Quite a few accidents/near misses this year. The ferrari crashed but a morgan aero 8 did the same although not as bad on a previous pursuit run. Then there was a 911 turbo major spinoff on the straight (just missed the barriers by inches) and of course the stunt rider fell off his bike too!

I feel the show was better last year though, Apart from the Enzo there wasn't much at all i would consider truly special

Alfa GT 3.2 V6 - Quaife diff, Wizard SS manifolds, Scorpion SS downpipes, Scorption GTA catback, Bilstein b4 Dampers, braided brake lines, MTEC drilled disks, Red Stuff pads.
