We're pretty much ready to go as well,but sadly not enough room to bring "Voodoo" along though  :'(  which is a real shame.


However, Steve and I did manage to squeeze five C5's into the big bus, and I've got two in my Estima - so shouldn't grumble at "only" bringing along seven c5's  :)

Hopefully we'll see everyone at Brooklands in the morning  ;D

We're still coming  ;D
Bringing the 1 C5, which still needs loading into the Estima, and i'll also bring a few magazines featuring the C5 that i have.
Looking forward to it  ;D

Just looking back, and the first page for C5-25 was back in November 2008, where has the time gone, although the past week seems like about six months  :D

Have a great day folks.  Keep the C5 flags flying.  Good luck.  Let us know how you get on.  We want to see much video footage to remember the event by.

hi all,

i just got back from C5-25 Brooklands, and wanted the say to all what a great day i had, really enjoyed putting faces on the members and talking to very informed people about their ideas and threw in some of mine.

not sure why, but surprisingly when i as down stairs there were many visitors obviously fascinated by the machines displayed downstairs but had not realised there was a full display available above the restaurant.

Kurt and i did our best and guided (ok strong armed  :o) quite a few in the 'right' direction, so i think we might even have won over a few more prospective forum members :)

A big thank-you once again to all those that came along today and helped us celebrate the 25th year of the Sinclair C5.

Brooklands did us proud with the function room which helped set the scene for a really good day. I am quite humbled by the fact so many people travelled such long distances just to see what we had put together. Oddly enough there were a lot of people from Northampton there, so Matt's poster obviously did the trick  ;)

There were many highlights of the day, some memorable sights and more than a few laughs - retroandy's display was very popular with the youngsters, umpas powerpoint show drew a nice crowd and the prototype twin motor c5 together with electricDaves gearbox display kept the techies happy. There really was something for everyone  8)

Here are a few piccies from the day;
