    See everyone tomorrow.

    We're meeting 7.30am at Chieveley Services on A34/M4 if anyone wants to convoy.

    Reminder that our stand is T5 and T6 which is accessed via the Orange gate.

    Think everyone must have left a bit pinker after today. Perfect weather, great day out! Good to meet a few of you. Didn't take loads of pics, but got a few...

    Good day out. Blistering sun.
    Quite tame on track too. Maybe the price raise worked.
    Role on the next event

    What a brilliant day it was today. Like @James H says the weather was bright and hot - I am so sun burned its not funny. The size and popularity of this event has grown massively over the years and it now fills the entire site. The Cliosport stand today was all the way round the track from the main part of the show - Great for watching track action though. Will upload a few pics later. Thank you to @TimR26 for organising this.

    There was loads of Clios out on track today, every session had atleast 2 or 3 clios. There were however quite a few casualties today.

    Who owns the RB 182 that had Infinity Exhausts decals applied today? I saw it had Cliosport stickers on.

    Thanks everyone for coming today.

    Shame the delay in getting to Castle Combe meant stand wasn't as good as I had hoped because other clubs had intruded on to it!

    Hopefully we'll get a better location for the Forge Action Day in September.

    I even approached a couple guys, but they werent from Cliosport. Ha-ha

    Maybe have someone there at a meet time, like 12noon, or every on the hour, just to have a 5 min chat
    Good show, thanks for organising, and sorting my ticket :-)

    I'll make sure I do that next time just on the off chance someone is there wanting a chat.

    A group of us were stood on stand for at least an hour in afternoon and think you drove past as noticed stickers that looked similar.

    I attended but had absolutely no idea where the CS stand was, searched for ages but gave up and parked on the grass verge.

    Was a good day though - Weather was amazing.

    Our stand was in a rubbish place this year and wasn't helped by another club taking half of it before we got there!
