As per usual I didn't take many pics. I did chat with lots of people, some I've met before and some I haven't. That's what I love about csf, it's the club coming together and real friendships being made. Thanks to the admin team for putting all the hard graft in organising it.
Two suggestions for future though.
1, cross pie n mash off the menu, it was a real let down.
2, although the band were decent a big collection of fire pits would get people together more. You can't really have much of a conversation when the music is that loud either!8d879fb2c3ac6aa3abc74b2daf1a7d04.jpg1a43584970ff1540d3e022cbb8d6191e.jpg07b0f0e246d59fadbabc2fa6f5efb588.jpg41de5b3ac42c5f822a4b958b0d7997e3.jpgdc603b2890b3b36095c10715191330ff.jpg4382cf680915f16c40cae879654b56d9.jpg06f3ac7ee27a73723e154df6ae316a6e.jpgf52de60d0e5f2f25586153ca5981cd05.jpg901d336973f039de830d2517fa66fb70.jpg

Absolutely brilliant weekend. Thank you so much to the people that spend way too much time organising it, you did a fantastic job!

(If anyone got any pics or vids of my van, please let me know. My phone ran out of memory and my son wants to see it on track)

Yeah when I was out on a passenger lap I saw a photographer.

Had a great time while I was there, it was great to meet some of you lot finally ? Unfortunately having a wife that’s feeling like she’s going to drop another kid any second now that’s near 200 miles away, meant I had to leave earlier than planned.

The worst thing is that I’ve now developed a desire to get a track car - maybe a sheddy 172/182. We’ll see. I have, however, managed to 99% convince the wife to let us get a new Megane RS though, so every cloud!

Had a riot in the Kangoo, brakes a little worse for wear but apart from that no issues

Cheers mate. Got it running really well in the aft until all the bolts fell out of my throttle bodies! Damn you 9000rpm!
Hearing it scream, Turning around and seeing it squirrelling it’s way up the straight was a highlight of what I saw on track yesterday

Lol you missed my first launch of the day when I nearly spanked it straight into their little control tower thing...
Haha, I saw that. Your Westfield was the highlight of the track for me, that thing was / is insane! I saw a few other cars desperately trying to out-pilot you round the first 3/4 corners, only for you to utterly rape them on the straight ?

Ha it was good fun.

Some lad (sorry didn’t get your name) in a mapped 250/265 pulled up in the paddock and said “Everytime I see that blue pass light, I know it’s you and I don’t even back off, you just f**k off past me anyway”.

Don’t even get me started on the pie and mash ? the only reason we had them back because last time they were good.
The guys who were running it were rude to me from the start and the food was cold by the time we got it. The event team were all still dismantling things and had nothing to eat.. we looked up and they were closing.
I will be writing the owner who I know well a friendly email tomorrow when I am home ??
Other than that what a great show and lovely to see you all again ❤ Even if I do feel a little bit rough today ??

Yeah we said the same. We were trying to chat to the bloke’s (the banter last year with the Pizza ladies was superb!) but they were proper off/stroppy.
They clearly got sent there against their will.

Just got home after a pretty ropey drive back...

Absolutely incredible weekend though as usual. Massive massive thank you to everyone involved in the organisation of it. It can't be easy to pull it all off so smoothly.
Another massive thank you to every single person who came! It's the people of this club that really make it stand out from all the others! So many decent folk, and @Knuckles

Had some great laps on track with @Scrooge and @Danith
The AMG is just a beast! And the civic is bloody brilliant!

Just woke up and the field is empty. Lolz. Had to brave the Blyton bogs. Harsh
I didn't wake up till 1pm lol not a single person left on the field!

Me and Lindsay got no food as it was packed up and away in quick time.
We even tried to get food at around 5.30pm and was told that it would be much later before they started to serve so as my #NOTaREALTrophy had become a scrapper we had to travel an hour to collect an engine mount and when we got back they had packed up.

I now have two meal vouchers for sale

Same mate, there were a few people I didn’t get to say hi to that I wanted to, but I had to get back to the Mrs, she wasn’t having a good day! We had an even worse night too, it was probably noisier in this house than it was on that field, even with @JP83 and @DaveDreads snoring!

I'll have you know, the S-Max includes terrific sound-proofing, and there were no complaints this year. The car is just that amazing.

To be fair, my tent was pitched right next to it and I didn’t hear you! How much of that was due to the car, or you being drowned out by retching and spewing, I don’t know
