Dry is good.

We will be there in the 96. Sorry we can't make it 3 white Sonetts but ours is not on the road at the moment.

What a turnout!! :D

Around 40 cars arrived at one time or another and some more arrived around 3pm when we were leaving.

Hers's a short video. Colour is a bit washed out because I knocked the camera setting to "old fashioned" :oops: :oops:

Just back home. V4 on song all the way up the M40.

Great day and fantastic to see so many cars. Especially good to see our friends who made the journey from the East of England.

Thanks all.

Mike

Just my opinion but could be the best Ace Café meeting yet...
Great to meet friends old and new. I'd have liked to see more of the two-stroke cars but they went fairly early. (While I was too busy eating... :oops: )

Pics to follow shortly.

We left just before 3pm and as we drove out, a GM 900 and an NG9-5 arrived.

That made five NG9-5s at the event. I think that's the most I've seen in one place...

Yes, sorry the two-strokes had to leave early. I would have liked to stay for lunch and beyond but I had to be in N Yorkshire for the evening... great turnout, and v glad I came even though it was brief.
