Thanks to everyone for making the effort - I counted "atleast" 30 cars there mid meet, and some came and others went so might have been pushing 35ish...

Essex Escy - Thanks for all the help, co-organisation certainly worked well.

You know what to do - POST THEM THERE PICTURES!

Catriona, to be honest, it was too f***ing cold to take pictures - we had a 1.0 degree thermo reading, WITHOUT the damn wind (whcih probably took another 4-5 deg off!)

Was a good laugh though, meeting a few other people (Wayne, GT130 who's name I've forgotten already, I forget the americans' names too, but they were a good laugh with some fantastic cars (the black GLI jetta... *drool*)), sorry I wasn't more sociable, but being a big girl (ESCY!!!!) and having the flu, wasn't quite my usual self.

Oh and it didn't help coming home down the A12 stuck outside of a lorry, I didn't get to see the signs in the roadworks saying "DOWN TO ONE LANE LADS" as me and the car in front tried to plough into the cones. Dammit!

See you all soon - unless you're karting in an hour [;)] In which case sooner than others

Lol sounds like a meet I went to where everybody's pics came out blurry from shivering too much!

Hopefully some of us north of the border will get some pics too look at from a VAG event today [:p]

Thats exactly what I was gonna say - all but a few of my pics are blurred and that NEVER happens with my camera, shivvvvvering!!

That plus long exposure for night shots = no chance of a great image without the use of a tripod..... eh ESCY! [;)]

give me a few minutes people, i'll post my pics up [;)]

i'm not taking number plates out.......why? cos people drive on the roads with their number plates on show, and ALL cars are legal, so no worries there, and the cops were there anyway.

right.........

here we are.

many apologies to those i missed, it WAS FREEZING, believe me, i couldn't feel my fingers, or face, so fiddling with my seetings was just a no hope situation. if it was warmer, i'd of taken FAR more pics, i only took about 175, thats WELL below what i normally take....

and as you can see, even with a tripod, things didn't come out PERFECTLY, so apologies that some of them aren't quite sharp. But with the weather being SOOOOOOO cold, i dont think i could of taken any longer taking the pics. Even just touching the tripod was near painful as it is metal, and as such FREEZING to the touch. But never mind, i managed some goodies anyway....

but remember when you are looking at these, bear in mind some peeps had left due to the weather, so its not a FULL representaion of how many cars were there....at the peak, there were about 35 cars........

as ever, if anyone wants the full resolution pics, just ask, after all, they are of your cars!....

by the way, ALL pictures work......but if you get red crosses, just refresh the screen as its down to the length of time the pictures have been downloading, not the fact the links dont work........

The pics are looking as good as ever Essex [:D] you have Pm[;)]

Was a great meet despite the sub zero wind chill [:O] with some very fine cars in attendance.

Great to meet some new people as well & catch up with some familiar faces to [D].

if anyone REALLY dont want their plate on, then i can remove it, but to be fair, that would take me till next week on all those pictures.

i literally couldnt feel my hands taking all those pics. no gloves, and obviously couldnt keep my hands in my pockets........

glad we like the pics, they came out quite well.

ESCY, I totally understand why you havent done them dude, but I always would no matter how long it takes.

You took some superb shots mate, loving the line up shots - tripods are a seriously worth while investment.

I was shivering and thus mine were blurry. Only posted a few up so far. Could do a few more I guess.

Where are all the other camera shots, there were loads of em' knocking around!!!!!!!

Thanks for the CO-ORGANISATION, and the cop chats LOL Thats was one aspect I totally overlooked, ofcourse they are gonna be interested!! Oh well.

What time did the last people leave then, I left about 9pm.

Good pics Graeme, was a good meet.

Sorry to all those I didn't get a chance to speak to, it always
happens! Some lovely rides there esp. the mk1 G60's (2 of!) plus the
usual suspects!

Binliners synchro looks super cool even in winter guise!

Hopefully it'll be warmer for the next one!

Cheers[:D]
