Had a great time Sunday, really great event. Well organised, great attendance and very friendly atmosphere. Met many people I hadn't seen for many years, Charlie Williams (who doesn't seem to age), Paul Smart, Tom Dickie, Rex Butcher etc.
Few pics I snapped:

Paul Smart appears to be enjoying his day out in Brackley sharing a joke with the ever expanding

One of the more unusual exhibits, must admit it really grabbed my attention.

Yes I did, got a spin on a 250 Ducati belonging to Tim White. Really strange feeling having not been on a race bike for what is probably 20yrs :)

Yes I must admit I felt a bit like a fish out of water for a while :)

Nothing planned for definite but now I've had a toe in the water I am quite keen to do some more. Meeting up with people I
hadn't seen for many many years was a great experience and one I'm keen to repeat.
