Another really great day at Brooklands  8) Thanks to all those that came along today to support c5alive and Brooklands. Donna (Brooklands staff) was really pleased with the display we put together, but more importantly we outnumbered the Raleigh Choppers yet again  ;)

A few piccies from the day ;

Hello Everyone


Many thanks to Karl and Angie for arranging the day, also many thanks to radiomarty for helping me out with my broken control box and helping me fit the control box from 'half pint'  :D


Here is my flickr photoset of the photos me and my father took:

And here is a YouTube video I made of the photos and videos we took (It's available to veiw in 1080p HD for greater detail on the photos and video clips):

Some excellent additonal piccies mate, good video as well.

It was great to finally have an event this year where the weather didn't ruin it , I still shudder when remembering Ardingly earlier this year !

Thanks to Pep for travelling all the way down from Rochdale and everyone else for travelling so far to support our main C5 event of the year . Seeing a few c5's sorted and back up to running was a great bonus to the day , especially as it allowed us to watch some nervous c5 owners 's venturing onto the track for the first time ever .

Overall a really good event and a positive close to this years events list. Despite the weather and my "day job" workload conspiring to wreck our events time table this year, we still managed to cobble something together and end on a bit of a high. All good.

Bring on next years event  ;)

ps - i might have "half-pint" rebuilt by then...poor thing was abused for spares  :o ;D
