BMC / BL Show Gaydon 2020

Post by Fastback » Sat Sep 05, 2020 8:05 am

I notice there is no mention of the show this year on here but it is going ahead tomorrow (6 Sept) and I was wondering if anybody on here is going? I am and thought it might be good to meet to a few folk, at a suitable social distance, of course.

I believe Gaz (Vito) and Jon (JonR) are going Mark but not 100% sure on that.

Hope you enjoy it if you go and you find a few faces to match with screen names on here! :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave

Thanks Gary, Dave.
Nice to get out at last from the confines of covid, lots of others must have thought the same judging by the massive turn out.
Great weather and good to see old friends again and meet some new.

Just a few shots of the day for those that might be interested.

And if anyone was actually wondering why Jon's car won...

It didn't even look like it had driven to the event.

Oh, and there were some other guys there as well, some might recognise the 820 Turbo in the foreground.

Great pics there Mark! As for Jons car, i don't think they were this bright and shiny when they left the factory!

Image

Even the exhaust looks perfect! :wink: :D

Thanks for putting these up Mark, it was a cracking day. We were hoping to arrange an 800 only Drive and Tech Day at Gaydon in the near future but the Governments announcement on the "rule of six" starting the 14th September has kind of killed that now. We will be doing it when the world returns to normal though.
