The weather was foul driving down Andrew! Car is safely dropped off now.

For those joining us tomorrow, we are on stand 10 which is close to the Trunk Trader area again and this is a great spot! The Mk1 banner is up so we are ready for a great day!

See you tomorrow.

Couldn't find the stand to start with - no banner, but found a motley group of forumers! Good crowd and good to put a few more names to faces. Saw the first mini, an Island Blue Austin Cooper S Mk1 on its way to Beaulieu just before Newbury on the A34 Southbound

A very enjoyable, sunny Beaulieu. Thanks Tim for organising the stand.

My car didn't explode and I don't think anything fell off on the run home either which was a bonus.

Fantastic day at Beaulieu today. Thanks to everyone who joined us on the stand, and a special thanks to Tony Salter for giving us a great pitch once again. We had excellent cars and excellent company! Great to put names to faces and a good day was had by all. Really looking forward to Goodwood now! Same again next year.

Great display. Loved the pickup with the rear facing seats. Also bumped into a Europen friend who has a Volvo with rear facing seats!
Only joking. Super! :D

Had a great day and met up with a good few old friends. A fantastic gathering of Minis. Congratulations and thanks to Tony and his hardworking team yet again. Much appreciated. Thanks too , to the weather Gods for providing a much better day than most of us had expected! It was DRY all the time I was there :D !
Forgot to take my camera but hopefully somebody more organised and able will be able to entertain us with some photos later!

The busiest I’ve seen the show in a long time!

Saw some stunning cars, and to top it off I won class 6 in the concours. Happy days

Interesting...I thought it was quiet, no queues fir a brew and quiet in the trade area and at 2 quite a few were leaving, but I thought the club areas were the best I’ve seen....my car of the show was the early (mushroom colour) 1275GT, for whatever reason I’ve never seen one!
Cheers

Kevin
