I was there for an hour or so. Had a meeting, then had to shoot to a kart track. Sorry I didn't get to the Frozen North of the show, didn't realise you were going to be there or if have made a detour on my way back to the lorry.

BTW if you ever want free access anywhere, drive an old bread van. No-one stopped me on my way into the showground!

I did get to the Hall 4 Arctic Circle, mainly to see the polar bears who have migrated there. This year was one of the coldest ever, so great respect for the Hall 4 stallholders and Nanook of the North, who said it was too parky for him.

I have been to every year of RR, seen it through ups-and-downs, but I must say that this show felt the most diluted of the lot. There were too many fool frippery stands and not enough cars, (not even in Hall 2) too much artisan cheese/patisserie/fwah gras and not enough engineering.

I would have given the Connew and some of the ground-effect cars spotlight space in Hall 2 not Hall 3, and I had hoped there might be a Escort Mark 1 special compound.
I am a firm supporter of the Show, but if it does not get back to its roots next year, then I think that will be my last time.

Sorry to miss you Iain, I'll be up tomorrow.

Can't be worse than the Excel used car dealer show surely?

Depends on the circles in which one mixes! Amongst karting people in the south west mine is definitely better known

Iain I admire your dedication. I'm in a Premier Inn tonight and tomorrow, no way I could sleep on site. Does this mean you've left Arkwright Smith in charge of your stand? He he he

Well, the lad I was thinking of seemed not to be around so I left it with the chap on the main gate who had also been standing in the group I was talking to on first arrival - though I confess I did not remember him.

All in a good cause. Hopefully.

Lots of new tarmac around the outside of Donington replacing the dusty/muddy tracks. That's a good sign I hope.
