What great weekend and good to finally meet up with a few long standing, but new to me faces, namely Jerry, Kev and Shawn plus their respective other halves.

I'd second Pete's thoughts on the yellow Elite. Very nice car, and learnt a lot about the reality of a quality, as original interior re-trim from it's owner (i.e. Costs more than doing leather and no where near as durable - Uhmmm) - But it does look nice. :D

Glad to hear you all enjoyed the weekend, some cracking photos in there. We couldn't have asked for better weather..although a little cooler would have been nice...I had a sweat on at 8:30 am just putting out all the parking markers! :lol:

Thanks for your generous support once more in helping us raise what will be a record amount for Rainbows somewhere in the region of £8500 by the looks of it :D

Brilliant day, nice to see everyone even if I was a little antisocial. Sorry, I needed to keep out of the sun hence I spent all afternoon under a tree.

Yes it was, if someone let's me know their email address I'll send it on as I don't have the means to post it on here.

Thanks to everyone for yet again being such fun company. Carol and I always have a great time.

And thanks to those who gave me encouragement with the Esprit, I havent got off to the best of starts with it so the words of wisdom were most welcome. Those of you who know me well won't be surprised to hear I was straight on to a plan to make it more the car I want / expected it to be when we got home :lol:
