We drove up on Friday afternoon, taking both the drop head coupe and the fixed head coupe, we got caught up in the typical Friday Cambridge A14/A11 jam, so took a detour, before rejoining the A14 for Northampton.
We where camping for 2 nights, not my favourite pastime! but with brilliant weather I enjoyed roughing it for once.
Sunday even more wedges arrived, by my reckoning around 70 cars where seen, along with some TR6's invited along for their anniversary celebration. We also had a few Stag visitors. Theme of the event was special TR7's such as press cars, development cars, conversions, etc. Some very good cars where on show, favourite for me was the original TR7 V8 rally car of Per Eklund, beautifully restored to running condition by Belgium TR7 V8 rally fan Bert Smeets, and now back in the UK and a nice genuine TR7 Sprint.
I spent some time on gate duty, the highlight of which was a Herald 13/60 which turned up, believing the event to be a TSSC weekend! he should have been 25 miles away at Wickstead Park near Kettering! Funnily enough he didn't want to come in!

One to p--s of the Purists, TR6 with Chevy 350 V8 and sequential gearbox. I was in awe of the engineering required to fit the Chevy block.

A good event, thanks to all concerned.
