Good to meet you John! Hope the journey home is less disrupted....
Thank you Mike! Starting at your workshops, the rest of the weekend was absolutely brilliant & no delays on the return trip until I got to Dover - a Romanian truck had broken down on the roundabout by the docks entrance. My sat nav was made in Holland & bought in King's Lynn, but many years ago.

Gresham's has upgraded its facilities somewhat & I very much doubt there are dusty squash courts any longer! I was a bit shocked at how even Norfolk is now so overcrowded - no room to park in Blakeney on an October Sunday...

Really good to meet you too & I'm sorry I delayed you going home but as I said I hope to be back in January when there'll be a bit more time to put the World & Bauble's shortcomings to rights around the Bell tea Urn! Hope you had a good trip down to Ricard.

I thought they had already been to your place, John!

Bit of advanced information from the VSCC for anyone thinking of entering the Pomeroy Trophy at Silverstone next year:

Date - Saturday 24th February 2018.

Entries opened on 13th October and will close two weeks before the event.

New for 2018 will be the running of a ‘Sports Libre’ class.
