In the end only 2 of us were around for this yesterday (escortNreg and myself) :rolleyes: but it turned out to be a really good day anyway, and the weather was spot on. Got there around 11ish and headed straight to the James Bond and Top Gear exhibitions to start off...

After that we headed off to the burger bar so i could feed my pet monkey VV before having a quick look around the motorbike exhibition that they had on that day. I know fock all about bikes though, so i wont put too many pics on here of those..

In all, was a good day, and the venue would probably be very good place to hold a show if evo ever fancied having one down this way.

Awsome stuff m8... I need to upload my pics! Did you get the one i sent to your phone?

 

Have emailed them about booking the area for a show...

 

I cant see it costing that much to be honest with ya, and if we aranged to have stools there like that cleaning bloke they could pay the fees :) hehe

Right.. Finally my pics... As Gary said.. Only the two of us went but I had a blinder of a day and really enjoyed myself, loads to see and do there and was well impressed with the displays!

 

So, here is my picture diary of the day,

 

Started off witht he james bond exhibit, i didnt get many pics here but here is one of the most iconic and reconised james bond cars ever!

Then straight to the top gear exhibition,

 

Now unless you suffer from short term memory loss you WILL reconise these cars!!!

Now we wernt sure if this is the most recent one, but they must have finishes using it a few months back so it could be... The reasonably priced car (now valued at 2.3 million)
