I’ve been to the Motorshow today, and boy are my legs sore from all the wandering round. Quite glad I didn’t go swimming this morning.
Sat in all kinds of wonderful cars, like Aston Martin’s DB9 and V12 Vanquish, Lotus Exige (I want one, even if I did mess up getting out of it), Seat Leon Cupra R, Honda’s Civic Type R AND NSX-R, various TVRs – they have many cars, but Chris coined a new word to describe the range – indiverse.
Other highlights included the fabulous Mini Open Air Theatre show by Russ Swift. We got to sit in the VIP area as I had my Ministry of Ownership passport with me. I could have got 10% off merchandise with it too, but as I already have 3 Mini shirts, that was more than enough. I also had a spin round the test track in an MG ZT 190 – a thoroughly impressive car! Pity they didn’t have the V8 RWD version.
Now to bed in time for a fairly manic time karting wise over the next month. I’m racing in Club100 Sprints at Lydd on Sunday, GP event at Herefordshire Raceway next Saturday, Club100 Inters Enduro at Warden Law a week after that and Club100 Sprints the next day. Possibly more racing the following Friday. Madness.
