This is always the case, those that have to drive back and forth must stay dry all day. Those that only need stagger the 2 minutes from the Champagne bar were well oiled all day.

Then again driving a Virage most trips home are on the back of a recovery vehichle so you may as well soak it up. Now Annie is safely home in one piece I feel far safer making cracks like that.

Dixy, your comments at the champagne bar about Vantage reliability were only said I seem to remember with fingers crossed!!

The photograph of the Vanquish gallantly allowing for some extra room for its two senior brethren by mounting the kerb is superb.

yeah i was suddenly wondering if one of my spiderman super powers was invisibility. that would fit the pattern wouldnt it.
the pictures are a shame as maybe no one else can see the cars either. we workied it out to maybe two million quid. the countach was a dream 8,000 miles.
the exhaust was amazing and what was wierd was the noise got louder the further away it went. no idea how that worked.

OK, OK you lot.  Here they are again, but smaller.
You all really do need to invest in 21" monitors.

Bit rich Dixy, considering that oil leak we found under your car. And when I parked your V8 Vantage there was the definently the smell of a burning clutch (does everyone know about the valet parking at Houx? Just bring your Aston in and let us park it for you...)

Where was the hotel?  Looks like it needed a DBS V8 in the car park to add some class

we had the pleasure of a lovely V8 vantage X pack (i think) in dark blue but its parked over to the right and its not in the picture which is a shame.  a dbs would indeed have added some class to the proceedings.
not a clue where the hotel was all i did was follow geewizzpips exhausts all the way there until his brake lights came on hard.
unreal place though and the other lads were a good laugh.

it was about an hour drive on fabulous roads and that was the great thing about the hotel the food was really top draw couldnt fault it and a huge wine cellar. both clealry the attraction. rooms simple but ok right up to really nice suites.
the grand prix guys pretty much take the thing over.  spent most of the time in the car park with a beer in my hand which seemed to be the thing to do. i am lambo nut as well and got to sit in a couple of those so sweet, everyone just opens their cars up and you all have swap sitting in whatever, no one cares. two stunning other brits an E type and healey 3000
i went as a guest of geewizzpip keith and had a great time
