Well Hotel book, me and my 9yr old boy will there Sunday, gentle run down on the Saturday, see my brother who lives in Oxford on the way and my sons favorite part is the Breakfast on Sunday Morning.

PS if you see a green dolly on the hard shoulder give us a beep.

Well I am planning to bring a TR7 Sprint which hasn't been on the road since '92, MOT is planned for Friday, if it passes then I'll be driving that up.
Is that a genuine TR7 Sprint James?
I really like that idea as a car, more should have been made.

It's much too late to be a factory car and also a convertible, all the works cars were hardtops as they were a homologation special for the works rally team - who got the V8 instead! There were SUPPOSED to have been 400 of them for homologation, but it is more likely that less than 200 actually made it out of the doors before the project was scrapped. So a rare car indeed, although a couple of members on here have proper ones, albeit slightly decayed, from what i've heard!

I understood there were about 40 made!

Look for SJW ***S registration plates. A pal had a Tahiti Sprint SJW510S a few years back which was bang in the middle of the numbers; we wondered if there was anything special about it, but drew a blank with our research.

One of our members travelled 350 miles to get to our event today. Last year we had members from West Coast USA attend. Dedication, pure dedication. :D
