It was a real pleasure to be at the Autosports show in Birmingham, and we would like to say how wonderful it was to have so many visitors coming over to see our display and also to hear how many of you really appreciated our effort to be there. It really was smiles all round.
During our stay we had the current ERC Rally Champion Chris Ingram drop by to say hello. It was a pleasure to see Chris again having known him from the Junior Rally Cross days. He kindly brought his race suit from when he won the Junior ERC Rally Championship. It was also great to have Nicky Grist call by our stand at the Autosport Show and take a look over Steve Rimmer’s Martini Ford Focus WRC he co-drove with Colin McRae in 2001-2002. Nick kindly searched through all of his event stuff and found all the books relating to San Remo, Monte Carlo and Corsica which will now live with the car.
We also had a visit from Olly Clark and wife Deb's and super kids Ben and Archie to look at all the cars. They spotted Grandpa Rogers Clark’s Lotus Cortina and the boys couldn’t resist getting in the car and checking it over.
Twin brother DTV fans also visited the stand and gave us so much info about the Chevette it was great to talk to them.
It was wonderful to see so much interest in the cars on the stand and to get such great feedback. We really do appreciate the time people take to come over and talk to us about the renovation work we do and also to share stories and memories of some of these iconic car.
