Now I know this isn't directly 4x4 but what the heck - there's a Merc G500 4x4 in amongst all of this to drool over!

Well we took the MX5 camping - yes it can be done! Bit tight but all the essentials were there:


Actually you aren't interested in the 'drive it like you stole it' classic racing (it was great to see Dollies and Escorts and Cortinas and Cobras):


Or the clubs:

Or the pits:




Or even the free rides:


Or the Group C cars at dusk:

Even better though was the RR undergoing a live 3 day rebuild:


and the fireworky planes:


the main act of Sat night wasn't bad either:


But - what is that I can see from the big wheel:


a G500 beer wagon - WANT!

My dad went on the Friday, said it was really good and recommended I went. He said you could ride in some Jags doing doughnuts which were getting though a set of tyres every 18 minutes Shocked

The beer wagon looks great, with decent beer as well!!
Back in the day I used to run Fiat X1/9 turbos and camping was possible (but I suppose technically they have 2 boots!)

I'm not going to tempt fate but the MX5 needed the seatbelt mounts rewelding and the fiesta broke her rear springs (don't ask - they are Mrs NBs cars)...

...all the LR has needed so far is half a litre of oil Cool
