I shall be there both Saturday and Sunday Ray and as before staying at the Day's Inn at Wetherby Services. By coincidence I have just booked the accommodation, which at around £63 a night is about as cheap as you can get and the rooms are very smart! With regards, Matthew T.

Many thanks also for reminding me about airbnb Ray and I am also now booked at a property in the Town centre with a saving of £50! With regards, Matthew T.

What a great weekend! No pictures unfortunately but I'll see what pics my other friends took.

Highlight of the weekend was a short convoy of 4 XM's along the A1 on our way home from Wetherby, how fantastic that would have been to see. Matthew turned off for the A1M. Further along the M62 we caught up with another friend in his AX GT and this is what he wrote:

A great weekend good to chat and meet everyone a great relaxed atmosphere made early start to day well worth it. Think I will sleep well tonight and know my dad will probably sleep for a week (if he can nod off in my AX at 60mph he can sleep anywhere) thanks to Ray Noon and his convoy of XM's for the fly past on the motorway on way home :) like a squadron from red arrows could see you all coming and I wasn't able to get pass centre lane road Hog !!!


Thanks to everyone who made it so special.

I can really only echo the comments from Ray and another great event certainly! In particular I enjoyed the scenic drive out on Saturday luxuriously chaufferred in KBAN (thanks Ray) and the other informal chattering over drinks on site and a Saturday evening meal. There was a particularly good showing of cars on the Sunday although not that many XMs and without Ray (2), Alan and myself the model would hardly have figured. A couple of tidy CX and AX and several attractively coloured DS also stick in the mind. I managed to pick up some useful spares thanks to Richard who recently acquired Medway Citroen's large stock, including a couple of hydraulic pumps and a new Valeo rad and engine mount. The A1 convoy has been mentioned by Ray that I could not resist recording! With regards, Matthew T.
