Pictures from Donington 29 March 08(Not Narrowband Friendly)

Postby andyhaworth » Sat 29.03.2008, 21:06

Wasnt sure where to put this, the Donington one didnt seem to have the right threads, and the Picture Gallery seemed to be readers cars kind of thing. Mods - please feel free to move it somewhere more appropriate if necessary.

Anyway, a few from today. For those that didnt go the weather went badly downhill (ask Nige!). Great to meet those I bumped into, and if I still owe anyone cash, please let me know!

Talk and song from tongues of lilting grace, sounds caress my ears but not a word I heard could I relay, the story was quite clear - Robert Plant

Whoever owns the very shiny 'H' reg SE on the right of this picture, I'd just like to say that your exhaust sounds lovely! We overtook you on the way up to Donington (I was in my grey Elise S1 followed by a silver S1) and I remember thinking it had a nice 'fruity' sound. Very very shiny too!

And here's one I took of your impressive LEC line-up.
