Morning all,

Last year i posted something similar however my plans to go to the F&T show was veto'd by the OH as it was her Birthday and unfortunately it isnt her cup of tea.

However, this year the F&T show doesnt fall on her Bday and i've got 'nod' to go, i went to the nationals earlier in the year which was great, apart from the intermittent weather.

I've never been to the F&T before, is it worth it?, i'm 1 hr 20 ish away from Pod.

Regards

Gaz

If the sun shines its a really good day with different things going on. Gutted we can be there with the altered this year, we were lined up to match race Robin Read and do another flame burnout in the evening, but a thrown rod put paid to that.

Well I hope he does go out there. I mean who the hell wants to see Ken Block sign autographs? I want to see him drive a bloody car!

That said, the quality of the drivers in the arena is usually so high that Block will be hard pushed to stand out frankly.

Arrived home fron the pod an hour or so ago. Great day out for a petrol head with kids. Really impressed with the effort put in by the organisers, Ken Block did his thing and Monster now have a new customer (my little lad).

It was a five hour round trip but I'm glad I made the effort.
