Donington Kit Car Show

A good weekend at the Donington Kit Car Show.   Decided to try camping over the weekend again so loaded up the car:

Very successful any particularly nice to be cooking my own breakfast on a camping stove for the first time in 45 years.   The Club had a good turn out and I reckon there were 20-25 men, many with families who stayed overnight.   This was the car park next to the tents:

In the evening the Club had organised a 'run-out' in memory of the previous Chairman who had, unfortunately, died suddenly a few months ago.   His wife and children have continued to be involved with the Club and were given rides on the run.  In the event 26 cars started (the sight of 26 cars arriving simultaneously at a Motorway Service station for petrol was a sight to behold.) We drove for an hour and 22 of the cars successfully arrived at a chip shop in Ashbourne, Derbyshire.  Here we are at the Car Park with plenty of admiring looks from the locals.

Unfortunately it started to rain just before the return journey so we had to drive back in the dark with pouring rain.   Didn't enjoy it all.

The show itself had all the usual stands, from part suppliers to kit car producers.  This was one of my favourites, a car from GBS who took over Robin Hood.   Fully turbocharged and a monster !!

Maybe later.
