Gt Whelnetham Classic Vehicle Show
This is a Vintage ,Classic Vehicle Rally at Gt Whelnetham Community Centre , Bury St Edmunds,
Eleven of us in 7 Kit cars meet in Vintens car park and then headed off to the show.
We were later joined by Peter Tamblyn in his very nice Tiger Super Cat.
It was great to meet Peter and welcome him to the club for the first time.
We were also visited by a Merlin owner that says he will be visiting the club in the future.
and a club that had done some of the organizing for last years show consequently
there was a lack of cars present but still a far number.
After the show a few of us ventured to the Bury Retro ford clubs event,
Cars on the Grass. Although we arrived late it was still worth the visit
and I'm sure it will be on our events calendar for next year.
Peter's Tiger Super Cat
Potential members Merlin.
Another great day out.
Five cars with nine members meet up at Bury and travelled together to the show some
five miles away. The journey was not without incident however.
I had been playing with my tuning again and had got it wrong, I would say slightly
but I think it to be more massively. As soon as we left Bury my car started to cough and
splutter and I was informed that flames were seen coming form the exhaust and wrapping
them selves around my rear wing and down the rear panel. I reverted to a previous map
and all was well for the rest of the day.
We arrived at the show in good time and each car was photographed on entry.
The day progressed in the normal fashion talking drinking and looking at the cars on show.
We entered a team into the tug of war and fortunately for me and Andy the teams only
consisted of teams of four. It was good to see our team go through all the rounds and
win the final.
Well-done Stef, Fran, Paul and Mike.
Later in the day we were given the option to drive our cars around the arena.
A first for me.
We Finally left at 16.30 for a great trip home.
I got much burnt will wear sun cream next year.
