I don't think anyone in their wildest dreams expected the event to be as popular as it immediately became.

Back in Oz & recovered enough to finally post.
Great event & was certainly worth the trip even if only for one w/e. Thanks to TNF'ers Rodger Lund & Cirrus for taking time out to say hello.
This event was once described to me as a bit of an English Snob Fest but was very happy to find it as the World’s Biggest Fancy Dress party with a few cars & planes thrown in for good measure. Congrates to the organizers with the vision for constructing this fantastic event. I would very much like to be back one day and I'm sure I only saw about 50% of what was on offer. Highlight - Lancaster Bomber's and those cars. You English & Europeans don't know how spoiled you are for quality over there.
The week in the UK turned in to a bit of a blur where Sonny and I met some wonderful people. Thanks to all for their hospitality (You know you you all are)
Never knock back the opportunity to sit in the ex Moss 250F
Me with owner Graham Adelman.
Marty Bullock & his Lotus 27. Marty went on to a great drive in his feature race.
L to R. - Bo's son (Sorry) Me, Marty Bullock (In car) Bob (kneeling) Alan Ald, Sonny Rajah.

Just a thought, on the disparaging criticism of the Chris Rea replica of the Dino... it was never meant to be an exact replica, for Pete's sake: it was a movie prop. It was meant to look and sound right on film, and be built within the movie's modest budget. That's all. And that's what it did.
