I'm sure both ice cream sellers could have had a good day. The guy who flounced off had a traditional ice cream van (99s, lollies etc) which would probably have been what the kids preferred whereas the other guy was selling Gelato and Sorbets from a motorcycle-based "Stop Me and Buy One" setup. The queue was at least 5-deep all afternoon so I think he probably did very nicely.

3+ hours of prime selling time, 4 ice cream cones a minute, 2+ a pop. That's about 1500 turnover.

BTW - have to agree with Grant about the bacon rolls.

Not of the Icecream wars I'm afraid I had no idea it was happening. I had popped back to the car to refresh the memory card, and me with some iced water and top up the sun screen.


The latter was less successful than usual by the end of the day. A new brand, unfortunately. My preferred product for the last several years seems to be no longer available in the UK. Hmm.



As for pics - well the 3 interviewees earlier of course. I'm still working through them - the very bright sunlight is great but sets individual challenges image by image.


But as we have been discussing food ....


These were taken during the set up time in the morning - hence lack of queues.

As for cars there were a several that I suspect may be unique but how about these two for starters, partly because they are of a similar age (I think) and colour.


The Jabbeke speed record TR1/2 rebuilt by Glen Hewett and the fabulously engineered and now restored TEST 1 Ford engined special courtesy of Mike Endean.

Sorry myself and Fay could not make it this year (that Goodwood event got in the way). Hopefully all went well with the marshals you had. Hopefully next year no clashing dates !!

We had another fantastic day. I think the heat kept a few cars and drivers away, along with Tennis and Football plus there were another couple of local events going on. We raised nearly 7000.00 so thank you for that. The mums from the school again had a bumper day with cakes and bacon butties "already discussed" on this thread there takings were close to 2000.
High light for me was David and Liz Piper coming along for an interview along with Broadie and Mike Knight. I could listen to Mike all day, a very clever and witty man with so many fantastic stories of racing back in the 60's and his Winfield Race School he was involved in.
So ten years has past, very very sad we are loosing a couple of key committee members, along with the highlight of having the show I have made some very special friends past and present who have helped me enormously.
As long as we can use the fields around the Delta workshop I will carry on. The Tour gets more and more popular and Craven Motor Club do such a fantastic job.
So stand by for next year but for now many many thanks to all Tenthers who have helped and supported the show these past ten years,.
