    Default TRAX - BigMan's version!

    The day started at the god awful hour of 5am, where i met Jamie(Higgins) at the bottom of my street for a leisurely cruise to Newport Pagnell Services where we were to meet up with Dave(Ralph Wiggum), John35, Peter(Tyreman) and Johnboy77.

    We arrived at NP about 10 mins before the rest of them, had a quick coffee....
    (Mine and Higgins car's in a very badly lit NP Sevices Coach park)

    and then the rest of them arrived, so we spent 10 minutes chewing the fat before making our way up to Silvrstone at a relaxed pace, with me nominated by Dave as Rubber Duck leader of the pack!

    The queue's were'nt too bad, but just as we pulled in, they opened up another lane, so straight to the front of the queue we all went, they must have heard about how good our club was, and been waiting for us with the red carpet treatment!

    Gates were opend slightly early at 0620, and i was 3rd through(So much for the red carpet treatment eh?!). Not really paying attention i followed to Vec B GSi's through, and they went straight past the next gate, and off down a dead end road, hotly folloed by about 50 more cars! A quick turn round later, and i was then the very first car thru the gate, Great for the photo's so i thought, so fog lights on, have it looking pretty for the camera(More on this later)...

    Being first in, meant i was first on the Vectra C Stand, and it was a huge plot, which looked nothing like the plan Duncan/AJA had posted up for us to follow with regards to parking!(It did, we just couldnt picture it!) So, as more cars pulled in, the more confused looks we all got....







    ....until Big Phil turned up and sorted it all out! Phew....! When Duncan arrived a little while after, there were a few minor adjustments made, and we were set for the day.

    With cars in position it was cleaning time, with everyone setting about their cars with some sort of Polish/Wax/Detailer. Thanks Dave for the use of your Last Touch type stuff.

    With Cars all shiny and polished(Even Mark GSi donned the polishing rag), it was time for a natter and say hello to people i didnt know. I wont name you all purely coz i met that many people today, i cannot for the life of me remember all your names! It was great to meet you all.

    Anyway, enough of my tittle tattle and time for a few snaps, apologies of i have not got pictures of everyones cars on here, i have taken that many pictures today, i have lost track of whats what!

    Oh, and one final thing, If ever you go to an event, and think that being first in the gate gets you a good picture from Photography-UK, dont be so sure. I paid £25 for a framed photo of me coming through the gate, and when i got it, the quality was worse than you could ever imagine, so bad the the numberplate was barely readable! I showed Duncan, as he knows a thing or two about photo's, and he was horrified. i got my money back without any problem, as they were well aware it as a sh*t photo!

    An absolutely fantastic day had by all, was great to meet new people and put faces to names and see what others have done to their car's, and plan some future mods for my own car.

    A big well done to Nick(Payney), you deserved them mate, and i'll hopefully see you all again at a meet in the near future.

    PS - If i havent posted a picture of your car, its not because i dont like it or didnt see it, i got pictures of all cars, i just took a random selction of what i had.
