I would like to add my thanks also to Mark and Pete and everyone who made Blyton such a special day again, this was my second visit and I can safely say that I looked forward to it for a year. Thanks to Tim Harber of Minimail for the loan of the White racer for the day, It was great to see such range of nice cars and like great people. Not sure if anyone realised, but the mature gent running the bike engined Stryker, was Dave Pritchard, builder of some of the best spaceframe Mini and Metro rallycross cars of the past!
Looking forward to next year already!
P.S. Well done to Nick and family for sorting the "teething troubles" on the Amal equiped 7 port, and making a real day of it!
Steve.

I unfortunately was not able to make this year. So next year will have to be my first year....
Just a note regarding numbers of spectators etc. From what I've seen a number of events happened this weekend. Dews downtown had the weekend event they do, also donington historic was on. I'm not sure if this clashed previous years with these, but could be a bit to do with it.
I shall go on looking forward to this event for next year, and look forward to meeting many of you.

Best regards,

James

A big thanks to Pete and Mark for sorting this out again. Must be a bit of a nail biter trying to get all the cars signed up once you've committed to two days with Javlin. :( :( :shock: Maybe you guys could sleep easier organising it around one day as opposed to two?
Also never done the Eastern circuit before, great fun in that 970 ..saw nearly 9000rpm on the wobbly bits and then the bigger engined cars squeezed past me on the way to Bishops... :roll:
That's my excuse anyway :lol:

Great Photo!!

As we have all frozen to death for the last 2 years, I would now NOT be against moving to a later date.


Mark ,Its f*****G marvelous ,great forecast for this weekend coming ,7 days later Grrrrrrrrrrrr, I also think the date should be moved nearer to the summer ,OK it can rain anytime but it won't be as cold and as windy, in other words warmer.

Loved it again, nice catching up with friends,Well done Mark and Pete ,Roll on next year.

Thanks Everyone,
We had a fantastic time again, It really is the best event of the year.
We will be there again whether its later (or earlier!) 1 day or 2, don't care, We loved it!

There was some really impressive cars there and it's nice to get to know more people each year.

Off track highlight for me was being parked next to this racer on Sunday, It turned out they started their lives together at Voss motors Liverpool in spring '63!

See you all next year!
Luke

Thanks again,
