Festival of The Unexeptional 2022

Same location as last year, tickets slightly more expensive but hopefully that's so they can get traffic management sorted.

I'll be taking the BX over this time. The Micra actually seemed a little bit too modern when I went last year! Anybody else thinking of going?

In fairness there weren't all that many I encountered. There may be more this year.

Sounds like BXs weren’t unexceptional then! Tempting day out…

Ah, but as we all know the BX is exceptional rather than unexceptional so won't attract any attention!

Great! Would be good to get a few more cars to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the BX

Not for me as I have, exceptionally, two music gigs on that weekend.
The Joy of BX with just one Citroën BX to my name now. Will I sing Bye Bye to my GTI or will it be Till death us do part.
