Firstly, I'd like to thank everyone who made my son feel welcome.
He's only 12 and this was his first gathering. Big thanks to Hardcore for letting him play in the track Benz - now all he wants is a Merc 190, and his idea of 'pimping out' a car is to take all the seats and dashboard out!
Thanks to Mark (nightmaresracing), for coping admirably with the constant pestering. You did well for someone without kids! All in all, Dan had a wonderful weekend.
Oh, and thanks to Peaches(?) and Keefy(?) for letting me give him a driving lesson in a spare bit of field.
And lastly, thanks to A52 for taking me in as an honory member. The Saturday evening 'gathering around the slotmag' was good fun.
Here's a few pics - probably not in any order - to show how much fun we had.
Getting there was a breeze thanks to the Merc's comfy seats and my hastily installed emergency cooling fan.
Outside the museum.
Was nice to see one of my old rides being given the love it deserved.
As I said - Hardcore - you are a legend.
EvilGed - Slightly more evil this year!
Susnset over camp RR
Waiting to get in.
One of my favourite cars.
Went round the museum - I wanted to take this home with me!
Had some track fun.
As did others..
And going home I tried the Satnav's 'detour' function, only to get very lost!
yup, kinda noticed Dan took to Mark, Mark has great patience if somebody shows enthusiasm and listens, he'd actually make a bloody good teacher. Dan is a good kid too which helps. best retro yet in my book.
