    No worries Dave. I can understand her reasoning.

      Big thanks to Dave and John for the organisation.

      Interesting guided route to our parking spot! - thought we were being directed off base again

      Great day had and nice to meet a few people.

      I did try to post a few photos at lunchtime but gave up with the effort needed from a phone on this site still - I'll sort through a few from my camera later.

      Hope you all had a good day and stayed hydrated.

      Driving home on the vinyl seats was luvely!!

            Thanks to all involved in making today happen, good to see people and meet some others. Has to be said it was rather on the hot side, I think they could have made money renting out the shade under the trees!
            Drive home was a proper pain, although my journey was only 32 miles it took me 2 hours! Sat behind a tractor for 10 miles then the rest of the time not moving on the M4. On the up side I had a quick chat with a fellow driver stuck in the same traffic as me, he was driving the last 427 Cobra which came out of the Shelby workshop, The car didn't seem to mind the heat but the driver was certainly somewhat on the hot side, wish I had taken a photo.

              Just got home nearly 5 hours after leaving, my battery problem returned and the very nice man from the AA diagnosed a faulty alternator. Driving an auto with a completely dead battery and no alternator was fun, you never knew what gear, if any it was going to select before it just died.

              anyway, a great day and a big thanks to Dave and John for the organisation, very much appreciate the invite the club gets each year to this great day out.

              thanks again

                  A bit annoyed I couldn't make it but did want to risk driving too far in this heat with a slight misfire at speed....I didn't fancy a few hours on the side of the M4 if it went wrong!!

                      It might take a good charge but will it keep it?
                      If your alternator is completely knackered it should throw up an engine or charge light.
                      Mind you saying that my faulty alternator throw up an engine light but gave a fault code for cam position sensor.

                      The battery would keep going flat on Dylan's old Land Rover which I swore blind it would be the dynamo not being man enough to power the lights ………… it was the battery ( found that out after I fitted a recon Dynamo!)

                        Obviously the day for it, took us around 2 hours to get home as A34 was jammed and we went off onto the country roads but they were really busy too. Car was running quite hot and transmission didn't like the heat and didn't want to shift from 1st to 2nd properly.

                        Anyhow good day out, thanks to Dave/John/Dan.....just a little hot!

                          Hot! But really enjoyed seeing you all.

                          Richard, I have always believed that once a car battery has been drained excessively it damages the cells. The chemical reaction that occurs in the battery is reversed when charging. If the reaction has gone too far it is difficult to reverse an so the battery can never reach full capacity.

                          Any less than 10.5v and I believe the battery will have suffered damage.

                            Richard, if you need an SN95 battery a lot of us are now running Yuassa YBX3113 batteries:

                              I hope the tractor was a John Deer mate..

                              Yes it was very hot, but nice to meet up with new people.
                              Journey to Weymouth was four hours mainly through the New forest.. Bummer.

                              Many thanks to the organisers for this event.

                                Hi guys, I really feel for all of your troubles with getting home yesterday. Certainly the heat had a lot to be held accountable for with the shortening of the flying display due to concerns of those watching getting to hot & dehydrated. Believe they had several cases in the Medical tents.certainly had few cases of wasp stings, including my wife Maggie, who had bad sting. Myself & Angie also getting stung later in day.
                                on the whole best was made of the heatwave conditions & hopefully everyone enjoyed looking at the cars. Sorry we could not sit by them & chat to those looking.
                                dave, thankyou again for the arranging of passes for show, especially the second set for me to collect. Incidentally the ones posted have not arrived home.
