Here is an example of the 'fact' sheet I will be sticking to my car. It saves having to be sat there explaining it to too many people. Also helps others when people ask about different cars on the club stand. Facts can be a loose interpretation of what you feel about the car rather than the actual reality if you like.

If you can knock up something similar to stick under the windscreen it would be good. I will also be including directions to the Tribute stand just to make sure Chris is flooded with orders from the inspired passers by.

Z300s Barchetta
Tribute Automotive

Body
This is not a replica of any specific vehicle but rather it is inspired by the open race cars of the late 1950’s and particularly the Maserati 300S

Engine
The engine is a 2,793cc (2.8 Litre) naturally aspirated straight 6 cylinder double overhead cam BMW unit putting out 193 BHP and just over 200lb/ft torque

Numbers
0-60 in 6.6 seconds
Top Speed of 142 mph (allegedly)

Value
Hard to say as it is unique but the the ex-Bill Spear/ Sherwood Johnston 1955 Maserati 300S sold for 4,033,500 inc. premium at Bonhams. Okay, that had a better pedigree than this one but we can always hope

As Nick says, he (and I am sure others) will be manning the outdoor "Club" area both days, whilst Dan and myself (again with help from other lovely folk) will be in Hall 1 for the whole show. See you there.

True, but can't swear on here!!

Having requested many passes for everyone to get into the Show I still don't have them yet. The security guys on the gate will have them and your details on your arrival, but any problems just give me a call on 07901 544241.

I have managed to get the small gazebo into the car so the TAOC stand will have a gazebo with blue balloons tied to it.

While we are doing the group hug thing can I add it was great to see everyone and all the cars.

The only slight fly in the ointment was the Owners Club AGM which the president (me) forgot to hold. There was a sort of informal one held in the hall at some point on Monday afternoon which is detailed on the Club sticky thread.

Summary - Great weekend with much sunshine and beer consumed by me!

Yes indeed Nick, a great effort by yourself and everyone else who attended the show, the AGM for me was just how I like meetings, short and productive!. I hear the on-site shop is now being extended and pallet racking added in the beer section!!

Thank you (in no particlular order) to the following people:

- OC president Nick Clark (WCA) and his Z300S
- Nubodi Automotive's Richard Bird and Co for their massive efforts to get the shiny Kobra there.
- Martyn Jacobs (The laughing cow) for bringing his cool vinyl wrapped MX250 hardtop along and helping on the stand.
- Jason (Drum Major) and Sophia Bate for bringing their MX250C, and for stand duty. And feeding Dan and myself!
- Andy McMillian (RedAndy) in his unfinished RS200 for inside and outside stand duties
- Nathanial John in his RS200 for inside and outside stand duties
- Mark Oseland, Gary Wilkes, Paul Stephens for bringing their MX250 hardtop's along to the OC stand
- Pat Cunnington (Patton) for coffee and chat

AND of course Dan, without whom TRIBUTE AUTOMOTIVE would not be what it is.

THANK YOU EVERYONE.
