@homeward could be in Godiva, which can't possibly get as dirty as the Punto by 2nd June!!

Looks like 2nd is the winner but when @scout500 finishes his lie in, we'll find out!

Yep, the 2nd looks like the winner. I'll email Jackie at Prodrive for Monday confirming.

I wouldn't be so sure about that...!

The farmers of Middle England seem to have been coating the roads in special high-adhesive mud, recently... -- although yesterday's rain helped a little....

Whichever car I'm in, I will do my utmost to make it sparkle...!

Maybe that's to fix the potholes - will presumably stick better than the stuff Bucks CC sometimes throw vaguely in the direction of the worst craters.....

Sparkle is quite a commitment

You're a star!

Hope you had a good time in Venice; and that the weather gods smiled on you both....

Had a great time thanks and I was in tee shirts all the time we were there. Even ate 'al fresco' Wednesday night.


Now to move the meet forward

Nah. That's a shot from just after I bought it, I'm afraid... (hence the wheel-trims and non-Sporting bumper...). Took me a whole day to get it that shiny....

It's currently being valeted by the rain, though...!

Re: Prodrive meet in June

Hi guys is it too late to sign up for this? I've only just noticed it and I'm free on the 2nd of June (just, I'm supposed to be helping the missus pack for our holiday but needs must .....). The stilo Schumacher has a chassis pack that was developed there and I've always been keen to visit the factory. Another member once tried to rally as many schumachers as possible to go there but sadly nothing came of it. It would be a great day out

Re: Prodrive meet in June

You are more than welcome to join in. As soon as I've got confirmation that the date we picked is still acceptable to Prodrive I will put up a proper meet thread.

Last time I went the smallest number was 2 with about 30 as an upper limit, so hopefully we'll get enough takers
