    So LR knew how unreliable their cars were - they even gave you a Defender tow truck with your first Defender purchase!

    As always a great meet and nice to catch up with everyone despite the weather (we did manage BMW HQ to Goodwood top down all the way though).

    I ended up doing the tunnel solo (which wasn’t so bad as I could actually hear my car for a change =)))

    Was a good day. Bit soggy but was good to meet some new people.

    Hit a pheasant on the way home and f**ked my splitter though

    A great day and the weather was not too bad. Missed a few showers but still managed to get the roof down from BMW HQ to Goodwood. The photographs on the grid were great just before the heavens opened.

    Thank you to all that came along and I hope you enjoyed the day.

    A few from myself from todays fun.

    I could only get to the Goodwood part but nice to get a picture of mine on the grid.

    @Alan Slade , @chrissyboy and I went for a coffee in the control tower and found everyone had gone when we got back. Was hoping to see @Lee as I had the prototype straps with me and would have welcomed his input but hopefully catch up at a later date.

    We followed Alan out and after 3 laps of the circuit managed to find the way out:whistle:

    Hi Mazza. I came to find you after being on the grid. Did everyone end up in a cafe?

    I think it was just the three of us (plus wives) in the new control tower cafe.

    No hanging out the back of safety car for photographer this time but they did wheel out a ladder (a wooden one at that too, Lord March must have special dispensation as I though wooden ladders were banned under modern elf and safety regs o_O)
