TRAX- Payney's write up!!
Well it was a 05.15am start for me and Clare this morning so i wasn`t in fully awake mode . Met with some of the guys at LFE services southbound and then began our run down to Trax.That's when my car decided to flash oil warning at me,so pulled onto hard shoulder.Luckily Rich (ditchp)gave me some oil and then on we went.Bigthanks rich for that m8 wot would i do without you.
Got to Silverstone for 06.30am .Pulled straight in to the site and then came the tunnel. Total brown pants on this one How steep !!!!????Very close indeed,too close for comfort,in my mind splitter number 4 was on order and going to the paint shop lol.
Anyway we made it through ...........Just!!!!Then on to our stand which was fantastic(well done Alex )There were a few members there already on what seemed like a massive site.Big Phil began organising cars a bit so we had some order.Duncan arrived and had a tweek with some cars positioning.
The mammoth task of preparing the cars commenced and many hours later we had done the club proud with a stand awash with gleaming Vectras and Signums.
Cleaning done we ventured around the show to have a good look round and saw many amazing cars of incredibly high standards .
Here are a few.
After all the wondering we had a fabulous BBQ thanks to Phil and the other helpers.The sausages were well cooked and the chicken was a nightmare but we got there in the end.Thanks guys!!!!
Then it came down to the presentations.
First of all it was best club members choice and then Judges from outside choice. I must thankyou all again for voting me cheers guys,it was a shock as some of you gathererd from my delayed reaction,The Quality and standard of the cars on the stand were superb,so in my eyes you are all winners.
Then there was another Well deserved award and this went to my m8 Mark(3.2gsi),Now this guy has been an absolute Gem to me and other members of the club and it couldn`t have gone to a better person because there is no better person,so Cheers Marky you are a star m8.
Anyway it was absolutley great to have seen all you guys and girls today and love to you allEveryone of you deserve recognition for the day today so thanks to you all for making it yet another memorable day.Heres to Trax 2008 and many more.
