I went to this, was a really good show in the end! Luckily weather held out, even though it was bloody freezing.

Woody, I saw your car (which I photographed, and you've seen on Instagram)

I saw the Brown Z too, but that's it. Hopefully will bring mine to the next one!

Thanks for the heads up on the picture Woody.

The spoiler is in the garage chaps. No, not somewhere down the road fortunatley lol, but nearly sucked up into the front wheel arch!..

The front corner valance got caught by the tire when reversing out of the garage at the time when the tension rod snapped. Bent the bottom of the valance inwards. Not badly, but enough to need a trip to the body shop. Pretty darn lucky really, the grinding (only in reverse) alerted me to the problem, saved me hitting the dual carriage ways and roundabouts in MK, which I so enjoy in the Z, a few hundred yards from the house. The fact that I then realised I'd done a motorway journey with a snapped rod the night before gave a few shivers, but hey ho.
Well at least you know I was there and no worries, I think if you go looking theres another somewhere from the same photographer.

Sounds like a lucky save! at least you've still got it. Hopefully it'll all be sorted by show season. I also now know why you enjoy MK's dual carriage way and roundabout system, alot of fun to be had when mine stops rolling around like a boat soon

Don't judge as its only a few snaps from my phone on the day and not my finest work but here you go. There was loads you could have been caught up looking at, I'm afraid I don't have the time to embed all of the images into the thread.

Would be really good to see the car in the flesh, if your not already down to then get your name down for the Donington Historic and/or Japfest. It would be great to see the car and put a face to the name
