Just to say what a really great event this was and very many thanks to Phil Chidlow and others for the choice of venue and impressive organisation. I understand that the attendance was up on last year with enough activity on Saturday and extremely busy on Sunday afternoon! Many regular faces were present and was good to catch up, even thought the time is never sufficient and some introductions missed. The particular highlights for me were driving James Carruther's C6 V624v (thanks again James!) and demonstrating my sphere recharge kit! I also attach a few hasty photos mainly from the second afternoon. With regards, Matthew T.

Looks to have been quite a weekend! Great photos.
I do like that red BX Sport's canted rear wheel panel - never noticed one of those before.
Good XM and Xantia turnout.

Is that BX sport the one that was for sale earlier in the year for nearly 15k? looks lovely, isle of wight car too.
The man with the petrol C6 made the right choice and who owns the 2.5td with the lovely wheels and calliper covers?

Many thanks Chris and Dean and there was an impressive turnout despite quite gloomy weather, although the number of XM was much lower than the X rally with about six cars at best. As I recall, altogether there were a couple of S1 2.1td, my two S1 V6, a couple of S2 2.1td and 2.5td, and one S2 24. The BX Sport looked extremely smart and was certainly resprayed (in a rather strong red for my taste), while as an imported and re-registered car the area code may not apply. The nice gas converted 24v C6 belongs to James Carruthers (see above) and unfortunately I did not meet the owner of the customized 2.5td, which I thought Dean would like! Regards, Matthew T.

I think the BX may be this one, shown as sold on Car & Classic and located in Italy, although no price is given!! http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C791662" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" The colour and year (1986) are certainly correct. Regards, Matthew T.

Great pics Matthew. It was a good weekend. The new rally committee are doing a brilliant job at revitalising the national.
The BX sport was imported from Italy. I'm sorting out a few engine bay stickers for the owner. He lives in Swindon.
