Thumbs up Made it, after all

After berating myself for capitulating so feebly, I decided to go to Stoneleigh in the S4 Seven, which was of course available as a kit in period. After a blissful trip up the almost deserted Fosseway, I joined the short queue into the NAC. Cruising up and down between the club stands I spied another S4 Seven, on the Dutton Owners' Club stand. I parked behind it and the owner, whom I'd conversed with on PistonHeads, came over for a chat. He'd had his (his second) since the turn of the millennium and had paid considerably less than I in those now far off days.

My 'phone then rang: it was Scottie of A352/XKSS fame. We met at the Tribute Owners' stand for a good chin wag where we also saw Lucky. The trade stands area was a little thinly populated, though the manufacturers' hall was heaving with the usual plethora of 'cheque book specials'.

The drive home down the much busier Fosseway was enjoyable, the Lotus behaving perfectly throughout the day's 108 mile round trip total.

Regards, Mick
