We also really enjoyed the day with some cracking weather and cracking cars!! It would have been nice to have had more time to chat and scrutinize, but I manage to catch up with a few of the regulars and met some new faces too. It was particularly good to see Paul S. who seems to be looking after my old Prestige and I love the photo of our two V6. I managed to forget to take any photos, apart from a quickie on the way out, plus some at a garage stop in Norfolk!! Regards, Matthew T. PS. Well done also to Will for getting best XM.

I didn't leave it to the last minute, I just left it...

I was truly flbbergasted, the competition was fierce and actually cleaned...

The day started on the way to Burghley with seeing a BMW Cabriolet with the bonnet folded neatly over the winsdcreen frame. Moral...Don't forget to slam the bonnet after washing, polishing the car and checking the levels, before going for a drive.

Next up, while gently (LOL) driving some country lanes, I rounded a blind bend and saw a large pond off to the side off the road. Nothing too unusual about that, except this one had a VW Polo in it...

Image

A few miles later I came across.Image

A large cycle race taking place and the main road closed.

Image

At this stage I was wondering if I would ever make it to Burghley.

But I did.

Image

Matthew went fully tooled up..

Image

Image

More XM on show.

Image

Look at that white Onynx

Image

Image

Nice CX's

Image

Image

Image

Mikes parts car.

Image

Image

What was termed as a DS with an unreliable engine...

Image


A few BX too.

Image

Of course a little bad behaviour is allowed.

Image

Matthew and Russ's faces on hearing they hadn't won "car of the show"..

Image

A couple of half pint versions.

Image

Image


There was also a meet of Longbridges [s]worst[/s] finest.

I didn't get a lot of photos in the five hours I was there but that was maybe because I spent a fair bit of time up at the MG event
