It will be nice to see you there Steve and that makes ten XM with Paul! Hopefully the weather will be decent to get the rally season off to a good start! The forecast at the moment is dry but overcast. Regards, Matthew T.

The aim is for my friend Steve Doel to bring his silver S2 XM. We should also have an AX and BX. Possibly an Activa and BX from the SW group.

I'm hoping to bring along my blue V6 this year. It's going to be a bit of a rush this weekend.
Today it is in for a bit of welding to the front jacking point (yes the usual mishandling at some point).
Then a 250 mile trip to see my son in Exmouth on Saturday. Then another 100 or so miles up to the show on Sunday!
MoT retest Monday!

Cheers
Steve

IMHO. The jacking points only bend due to internal corrosion. New ones didn't have a problem.

I'll be there with L114 for an outing ahead of the big one to France in June. Weather forecast is improving, looks like there may well be sun!
