New Year's Day Event
Page 1 of 3
had been quite a bit of interest on the R.S.S.O.C. forum about the NYD
meet at Brooklands so I made arrangements for a club display big enough
for 15 cars. It was quite nerve racking as the weather had
forecast severe snow in various places, so I wondered, apart from
me, who else would be mad enough to turn up.
I had planned to meet up at the Tescos Extra store very near the Brooklands Museum. I arrived at 9.am after a 2 hour drive. It was frosty and very cold (inside the car as well as outside!), but there was no snow as promised! Very shortly I was pleased and relieved to see a few Scimitars and Sabres arrive, including John Valler's ex-works Reliant Sabre 4, which I wasn't expecting, so that was a very nice surprise.
After about half an hour we had an impressive display of 14 Sabres and Scimitars in Tescos car park.
|Once we figured out how to get exit the over complicated Tescos car park, we drove the short distance in convoy following Geoff Cooper, who new a short cut to the Brooklands Museum. >
|On arrival we had a great view of the banking before we parked up in a semi- circle.
|Roger Hill very kindly offered everyone a small cup of Gluhwein (hot spiced wine), which was greatly appreciated and certainly helped warm up those cold bits! >
|Mad bunch of people out for the New Years Day :o)
