Reporting LIVE from the W&P Show 2011


Recommended Posts

Good morning from a very wet W&P.. arrived on site 8pm last night.. problems with the Fox, major fuel leak & it got stuck in neutral just as I got it on to the neck of the low loader.. had to roll off the lorry.. well fell off the last 3 feet, not much steering without the engine running & couldn't risk starting it due to the fuel leak that suddenly developed some where in the rear..

 

My Fox & Stuart's (Saracen Stump) Saracen are the only MV's here at the mo but as usual will post photos up as more arrive & photos from around the site as the show sets up..

 

Before anyone asks I'm not sure when you can get in to set out at the moment, will advise later.. We're all outside by booking in at the moment, I'll be getting some of the MV's of the lowloaders as they arrive

Oh - if you hear me stumbling about Saturday night - sorry - I will be returning from a wedding!!!

 

I do apologise in advance.

We should be down this time next week. Have to meet my mate in his Reo who is coming up from Cornwall. I decided not to take the Defender this year to save a few pennys. My other half is taking her car as a support vehicle so we can get to the shops etc.

 

Looking forward to it. Missed the last two shows this year due to work and weather. Got Woodcote this weekend though, lets hope we get the usual roasting hot weather at W&P. I'm in need of a tan...:cool2:
