Easy way of identifying the group anyone?
I'm easy to spot. I'll be the one at Sainbury's with matchsticks holding my eyes open! :lol:

That's a decent run. I've got 12 miles to do between home and Brooklands, so maybe a 30 mile round trip by the time I get home.

Those that signed up originally can have a laser forum note in their window, but not until I get there of course!

Petrol station opens at 6000hrs and you can get a Costa Express if you're that way inclined.

So we're here down near Brooklands stopping at a lovely hotel in Shepperton tonight. We had a gorgeous 2 course meal and a nice walk round this lovely little town. I'm the only Capri staying here unfortunately but I know Brooklands is going to be a big event when a 280 Brooklands came flying past me on the M40 coming down here. I'm really looking forward to it being as it's the 50th celebration and knowing how many Capris a going to be there tomorrow. See you all at Sainsburys in the morning. :D

Well that was a decent turnout, both at the meeting place and the day itself. I'm sure there's many to come, but a couple of snaps from the meeting point, I don't claim to be David Bailey.
