28th    August                               All British Day                          Blue MK I

All British Day 2016

With some doggy weather on the lead up the this years All British Day, I did wander if it would be on, but on it was with the usual large number of classic  British cars on display. The Mini Club put on a great display as did MG and Lotus, Jaguar were also there in great numbers. The wet weather in the week leading up to the event did make for some headaches for the organizers as some parts of the football fields were wetter than others resulting in some areas being roped of and the cars being more spread out.
