A few photo's from the weekend @ Castle Hill Car Festival 9/10 Aug.

A big thanks to Terry Coggins , Stuart Turner & Charlie Ware for joining us from the Wessex area.

SW members were Mike Chapman (Jensenmike) , Steve Salway (SteveS) , Peter Heal (cbxpete) , Mark Rivron (Trevithick)

John Stephenson (Johnmk1) , Chris Roberts , Brian Hide and myself (Pymmie)

Saturday was dry once we arrived but Sunday was very windy (Hurricane Bertha) and we nearly lost the Gazebo!

Also thanks to John Stephenson (John Mk1) for sorting out 9 rooms at a great hotel and the meal @ Prezzo's.

I hope all members had a great time. We were joined on Sunday afternoon by a man with a A40 sports who referred

to his car as the 'half breed'. He had travelled from Cornwall towing a trailer , not bad for a 1200cc!

Well done the two Johns, a very enjoyable weekend despite the weather.

Good company and lots of Jensen talk, and nice to meet a few more owners.

Pete and Bev.

A great weekend and I got to travel/drive in a couple of J series Interceptors.
Thanks to all for all the effort.
The drive home (at the mercy of Tom Tom) was a fine cruise through the Devon lanes past allsorts of villages I've never heard of, or can remember.

Castle Hill was a great weekend for catching up with 'Old' friends and making some new ones.
Venue very good, hopefully the event will grow. Park Hotel in Barnstaple provided good accommodation and an filling breakfast.
All I ask is that next year the sun shines for both days and that wind is a little less annoying..
