I was really sorry to miss you earlier Paul and we spotted your car parked up and then later driving out and I did try waving! Hopefully you may be back tomorrow for the 30th birthday! With regards, Matthew T.

Just a quick update to say that there is a very impressive attendance at the event and including a decent number of XM. It is still hoped to assemble from around 3.00pm for the XM 30 and most likely along the main entrance avenue. Please do join us if you can and help eat the cake! With regards, Matthew T.

Anyone who is on the way to the event would be very welcome to join the XM parking at the far hand end of the entrance driveway. We are now hoping for at least a dozen cars! Regards, Matthew T.

Hi Matthew and others I met today,

Nice to speak to you all, I had to leave abruptly to take my son swimming (I only live 30 minutes away).

I took a few pictures, so will try and work out how to post them here.

Regards,
Lee

What an amazing event!!! We are just lined up for the drive into Coventry and I think they may have the 1000 cars requested. Regards, Matthew T.

It really was a 'Rally of a Lifetime' and a Huge Thanks to all those involved in organizing the event. The brilliant weather on Saturday obviously helped and there was a fabulous turnout with all models well represented. I attach a small selection of my photos for those unable to attend. With regards, Matthew T.
