Popped into to the show and shine today and that is one incredible car up close and in the details as well. Stunning work fellas, I would have said hi but you'd drawn somewhat of a crowd!

What a day we had yesterday on the London to Brighton. The run went perfectly; we got down there with no problem which was awesome as the car has only covered 200 miles. We drove back through the torrential rain but the car didn't miss a beat.

On arrival at Crystal palace we immediately drew a crowd, and within 30 mins we had 2 very keen magazines wanting the car.

At Brighton, the car was awarded best in its class in the show and shine which was something we didn't expect to get, and then best of all it won car of the show awarded by mini magazine.

Well done to all involved, DougieMc, Chris, NotNormal, Cheese, LeeLee, you all know who you are.

Totally and utterly deserved, I didn't see anything else in SNS that was quite as good looking, as well put together and with so much carefully crafted detail, it's a fantastic car and I can only imagine how it goes. Great work fellas, wish I'd had a chance to say hi.

We had a bit of a mixed bag, great night at Crystal Palace although no sleep whatsoever (bed at 12.30 and the queue started forming at 3.30am!) and we had some fun on the run down. Shame there were several negative points like the run pack queue (total unnecessary), the traffic and two accidents (not their fault), the strange directions through Brighton (poorly thought out and bumpy) and the dodgy marshalls at Madeira Drive (direct your mates to the front and send everyone else down the end!)

I'll post some pics this evening for you.

Excellent yep post them up as you can imagine it was manic yesterday I didnt even get a chance to take any photos and didnt really see much of the show.
But the result was Awesome we really were not expecting the Trophies and to be honest only done the Show N Shine to get a decent parking spot to show the car ( and to get out of CP early )
Most of the time was spent chatting and cleaning hahaaaa
Yep you should have came and said hello will be loads of other chances anyway going forward now were on the road.

Congrats boys, looks awesome as we all knew it would due to the sheer amount of hours that have been put in behind the scenes.

Now I know why you wanted people to come over and say hello....... it was just so you could get them to polish it for you............or was that just me scratchchin

The pics really don't do the car justice, talking of which i've just mailed you some Dougie which you can post up if you want. smile
