Re: Brooklands 8.9.19

Andy and were talking about this event the other day. I would like to make the CCI Nationals next year, all being well.

I don't know where the time went at Brooklands. I really enjoyed it but as you said, unfortunately didn't get chance to catch up with everyone, including yourself and Rob.

Re: New Member - and message for Brooksy

What an endearing story Margaret. So pleased I got to meet you and your lovely Laser, that I've looked at many times in my Factory Original Capri book.
