    SW Region day out - SW Motor Show, Newton Abbot

    Today saw another great venture for the SW regiona as we attended the South West Motor Show at Newton Abbot Racecourse for the first time. Started out with a nice early start (some were up at 2am to travel down!!), then led to confusion once we got to the stand with people driving into the stand space while I was trying to park people. Once we were all on and the gazebo and banner were up, we all set about cleaning the car, with yet more comments about me being anal and bringing a massive cleaning kit to a show .

    Later on we had a BBQ with burgers and hot dogs a plenty, and a good wander round the cars on display, and a small presentation for the top 2 cars on the stand (Congrats to Richie Coupe & driftking22), who won some free passes for the Devon Car Show next month.

    All in all it was a good day, with a couploe of new members into the region too. A big welcome to Chris (dave234) and Elliot (driftking22).

    A big thanks to Jamie for putting in most of the legwork for this one whilst I have been busy with other things, and a massive thanks to all who attended and showed continued support for the region.

    Pics to Follow, just uploading.

    Sorry I couldn't make it this year as I had to pay for a joint birthday/fathers day for 5 people.

    Did everyone turn up on time this year (non AOC displays)?

    AJ, SW Cruise and a Renault club went to Exeter Racecourse and turned up late, but we got there at 7 and it was dead so we managed to avoid the rush.
