Kitfest June 14-16

Hi,
Is anyone planning to go to Kitfest? I am happy to book a club space if anyone would like to go? I'll be in Le Mans unfortunately/fortunately?

I've got something else penciled in for that weekend. If plans change I might go just for the day.

Penciled in has progressed to tied up all weekend so I definitely won't make it now.

In short yes it was, I had not been to santa pod for about fifteen years after being quite a regular. I packed up going as the weather kept ruining meetings as there is no track action with even the lightest drizzle and it did it's best to do the same this weekend.
The event was piggybacked onto a general RWYB on the Saturday and the retro show on Sunday consequently there were lots of cars (hundreds) wanting track time so with that the rain and a few oil downs it was in short supply with most kits only gettig two runs on Saturday and like me only one on Sunday.
That all sounds rather negative but it was a very enjoyable event and I will certainly go again if it happens next year. I don't know how many kits were there probably a hundred or so over the weekend but as far as I saw there were only two JP cars there mine and a very nice fury.

My recent campervan purchase does have benefits at wet events. :)

Sounds like it is what you make it.

I'm going to spend the rest of the day craving gig rolls :roll:
