    I am also going to book pole position for either day,after all this is England

    My initial plan was to wait until nearer the time and pick the best day, but my daughter was given her "A" level grades this morning , and has been accepted by Kent University,which was her second choice,which is great news. However Kent is a fair way from Rugby and has a different start date to her first Choice of Uni , which now clashes with our planned Devon holiday in a static caravan ,which is now the week before she starts at Kent Uni, so we might have to take her down to Kent on the same weekend as this P and P show.

    So, you guys go ahead and i will see how things go ,as to whether i can join you


    Chris ,

    as you have not been before, just join the long queue of cars , show ground on the left. Dont turn right into the public parking , the turning you want is after on the left ,and once you turn into the show ground ,the parking staff will check your pole parking pass, and tell you where to park . Their is usually two rows of cars entering the ground ,so try and all go in together ,so you can all park together .

    I’m watching with interest. Only fly in the ointment is Covid cases were rising here in Northampton and there was talk of a local lockdown. Now 300 positive cases have arisen at Greencore, a food plant who supply M&S so a local lockdown does looks more likely

    Hi Guys
    Looks like this is still on (well that's what their email to me said!!) unless you know differently?? The website is also positive. Are you going? If so which day? I have another Cobra owner interested too

    I'm thinking of popping along on Saturday (booked my Pole position - had to fib about the age of the car mind you). The following day I'm going to The Classic Car Drive In at the Bicester heritage site (which no one seems to be talking about so might be a disaster) http://theclassiccarshowuk.com/
    Might wee you at one of these.

    A great day at Sywell today. Met Chris P and David Firestarter and convoyed in and parked together. Whilst we were queuing to get in another Cobra was in front, Phil from Norfolk. So 4 Cobs almost together and another GD in the row in front. Anyone know the GD owner? We think we’ve seen it before at one of the East Mids meet but didn’t bump into the owner. Also another black one (? Crendon) with a riveted bonnet scoop parked further away. 6 in total.
    I have got some photos but my previous method of uploading doesn’t seem to work now. Manage attachments. Add files which are seen as thumbnails in the home folder. Select the ones you want and insert on line. Now can’t get them to appear as thumbnails and asking to drag and drop once they are downloaded which doesn’t work for existing thumbnails! Gggrrr! If anyone can suggest an easy way WITHOUT using a third party hosting site please tell.
