Anyone going to the Bromley Pagent this weekend?

As the title says really!

I'm flying over and going with a friend, hoping to find that elusive rare part in the Autojumble :D

Cheers

Yes, I'll be there. The North Kent Lotus Group (Snappy title, huh ?) will be there with (hopefully) 2x Elans - including my Sprint - , 3 Type 14 Elites & some Esprits & M100's & 7's.

We should be at the top part of the field. By the way, the forecast looks crap & the Autojumble is usually rubbish but you never know your luck !

Pop over & say hello.

Richard
72 Blue/White Sprint that backfires a lot

Here's a couple of pics of Berni's car on the day. No sign of Berni but being baby-sat by Si (some of us are not afraid of the rain) :lol:

It was a wet day but could have been wetter.

Not much in the way of auto jumble due to the rain but lots of different cars to look at.

Good job I did not drive the +2, I do not know what the VIP entrance was like but the forest track I was guided down would have been a struggle for my Lotus.

Jason

Hoping to get my +2 ready for Silverstone, I'll see you there Si :D

It was v.wet driving home about 4.30.........still raining as we speak.......

We were at the very top of the field, to the left of the one-make parking (If the arena was behind you) , beyond the hearses (!), by the Vauxhall Vivas. If you saw the the Lotus one-make parking then we weren't that far from it.

You'll just have to come back again next year, so long as you promise to bring some sunshine :wink:

Ha, I saw the hearses but not the Lotus parking or you guys :cry:

I was in a rush to get back to the wife and baby though.

I am hoping to put my rear suspension on in the next couple of weeks so hopefully I will bring my car next year?

See you next time

I did on my first scout around, and meant to go back, but the weather got the better of me :(
