    Just a few pictures from me. After starting Thursday with a heat wave, hence the lack of clothing by the camping crew. Lots of wet weather put a damper on the weekend nothing could take anything away that our little club had the best location and IMO the most attractive stand (big boys take note). As said previous great work by Stacey and Martin and thank you to the event organisers for the great location.

    Thank you to everyone that came and allowed me to boss you about to get parked up looking very smart
    Guys you did an awesome job parking up and did yourself and Zroadster.org very proud!!!! The amount of spectators poping over to our stand complementing all your cars was lovely to hear
    I hope to see you all back next year and hopefully break our record of Zeds attending Silverstone Classic 2020

    Shame about the weather but it looks like that didn’t stop you putting on a great show stand, pics look fantastic, sorry I had to miss this one. Was great to see the bread vans taking up some space with the rest, this should be the start of a great and long awaited closer relationship, was so surprised to see them separate at last years classic. Well done Stacey for getting the “M” bakers to bring in their vans.

    20190728_213409.jpg From stupidly hot to very soggy in 24 hours the variety of z's was on par with the weather, great stand organisation by Stacey and Martin and thanks to fellow z campers for a fun weekend and the doughnuts and pizza. Lots of great stand photos already posted so a few different ones from us. 20190728_151412.jpg View attachment 109789 20190727_085030.jpg 20190726_154502.jpg 20190728_213646.jpg 20190726_131000.jpg

    We done good...we showed them how you do it....the view when you come over the bridge was spectacular....even if we did loose the gazebo :ymdevil:
    It was good to see the (other club) members come over to display with us..and rightly so...
    The weather was crap but the effort people made shone through.
    Stacey you did us proud kido..:thumbsup:
    Just a word of warning though....don't mess with Stacey when she's in organizing mode...you have been warned =))

    What happened? I saw that the Gazebo had gone when I got back from the International Pits/Auction Room and assumed that you taken it down and left.

    @Paul Rice I am on the case for next year to see what I can get hold of at a reasonable price
    When @GazHyde reviews a potential new insurer to advertise here hopefully they will be the ones to sponsor us with a small marque and join us next year on our stand

    A few photos from Silverstone, a variety of subject matter!!

    The Alfa Quadrifoglio was an absolute hoot to test drive, 510 bhp on tap and the noise! The Tesla Model 3 S was amazing experience also.
    Tiff Needell and Louise Goodman present this year's highlights programme on ITV4 once again! Don't miss it when it airs on Sunday 18 August, they can be seen doing a piece for the program.
    Alan Titchmarsh has a lovely old Bentley.
    Mike Brewer's Zagato looks a bargain. :whistle:
