Ah.......overall list already exists, but it's way back in the early bits of the thread...page 5 to be precise. So here it is updated for you Bern:

1. Geoff (Just to remind me to get back to Blighty before the end of May)
2. Pinky (I might even wash the car before the date)
3. Spud (The up side of not being in the FA Cup final)
4. muley (Mr Pink ~ are you bringing a BBQ?)
5. saltire (if I have braking on at least a couple of corners)
6. MPx (and my mate Gary so we will bring both M100 and Esprit )
7. Rip. (If Spud brings Elan with cracked FTB dials, we may be able to swap them over).
8. Kathryn
9. Fredjohn (It'll be 2 Lotus weekends on the trot!!)
10. Bern (if I get the rear suspension rebuilt in time)
11. Nick, Kim & Isabelle (Won't be in a lotus but will have a caravan should anybody need a brew...)
12. Rambo - and I'll probably need a brew after 350 miles with a Piper, but not tea
13. Phil - damn it, suppose somebody had to be number 13...
14. Lolaman - Will be there with my Elan but will be sharing my brothers S3 7 twin cam on track
15. Bern (can't eat though)

Just got home to Crudwell (4miles north of the Dog) about the time of your posting. 212 miles and 5 1/4 hours back from work in Leeds. Sorry not to be there tonight, but looking forward to tomorrow, although weather forecast isn't great. Is there an ETD from Burton Hill, or shall I go direct to CC?

BTDT - you win. I'd rather have the inside of the car than the departure lounge at DXB anytime.

Rain overnight in the Castle Combe area, but hoping for a dry day. I'm aiming to leave home around 08:45, passing Burton Hill 10 minutes later and on to Castle Combe about 09:15-09:30. Looking forward to seeing everyone :gathering:

I hope you guys didn't have the rain that we had last night! Thunder, and VERY heavy rain!

The front right caliper has seized, and I think I may have warped the disc. I'm removing the caliper at the moment, hopefully I'l see you all later....

If only you'd said something... I sat and watched a bunch of spanner monkeys changing the CAS oil seals on Rambo's black one. They could have had a look for you :twisted:

Excellent curry - another BOLLECKing good plan delegated.
