Right, not long home, in the nice peace and quiet of the house and have listened the conversation between Nigel and Rob about my car, and from what I can make out on the bit people have been discussing about me being in the bar/XJ40 owners etc, the bit that was hard to make out was him saying to Rob “why are you not in there with him”.
I can answer why Rob wasn’t in the bar....because he works bloody hard! The man didn’t stop all day. Same goes for Letitia, James, Graham etc, great people who worked non stop. 12 months in the making that was! Troopers!
Well I certainly enjoyed the day. I love hot weather, so that coupled with all of our fantastic 40’s and seeing the 40.com attendees made it perfect. Only one regret from me was that I didn’t see you all very much, the day went in a flash and was trying to get around quite a lot of people I’ve met over the past few years, the racing drivers, David Marks great speech in the courtyard, some new people from the different JEC forums I’ve not met before etc, so was just trying to cram it all in. There was also some complaint taking, as you know, not everyone is happy, but what I did notice was that each time I came back I came back over to you lot, it was the same old story, a very familiar group who were great to be around. Missed most of the awards ceremony but I was there for one award that I really was proud of, Russ and his car! Well deserved, was very happy to be there for that!
