Tim:

Can you confirm the site will be available from the Friday evening for camping? The Citroenian says 15-17 in some places, 16-17 in others... The CCC website says 7:30am on 16th to 5:30pm on 17th scratch...

Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! \:D/ drunk =D>

20 minutes isn't the shortest time I've stayed at some events :roll:

I've got to collect a bumper from Phil, so will spend longer than that walking around looking for him I'm sure.

If you look for a gazebo with a french flag flying (if all goes to plan!) either I or Phil Boxall will be there (as will the bumper).

Thanks Ray!

The event officially starts on a Saturday morning really but you can arrive Friday and stay over. Not sure if anyone will be on the gate though so I will come round with my tin collecting! :wink:

Even then, it doesn't take you to the exact spot. Driving out of the village of Wimblington on the Manea Road (very straight!) it's about 2km and on the right. I guess it'll be signposted as you approach.

I was really hoping to make it with the car to the National this year, but it would be costly, so with the expense i looked into flights etc as well but as things have turned out, i've had some work come in i couldn't turn down on Fri+Sat nights + the day on Sunday, so I'm afraid i won't be joining you there this year. I will use some of the money it would've cost on the BX though, planning to do some jobs this week.

Have a great time and i'll be there in spirit. I look forward to the photos. Please someone take some shots in and out of that gorgeous mk1 in gold from Scotland - (Neil GP's). My dream car!

hopefully this week i'll get my new struts on and vacuum advance on the dizzy sorted plus a little bodywork.
