Really good turnout and there are now 17 confirmed cars and I still have a couple stand passes with no name as I was given a couple extra in the post.
So any takers please let me know.
This is a great day out with lots of gorgeous cars to look at and plenty track action to watch.

Not long now, to get you started.
For those of you coming to the FRP and Puma gathering at the RSOC South West regional day at Castle Combe, here is all the info you should need for the day.

You should aim to have arrived at Morrisons no later than 0830hrs. If you plan on having a Morrisons Coffee Shop cooked breakfast, don't forget the store doesn't open till 0800hrs.

Keep to the left as you drive in, and park neatly, rear end into the kerb, one car to a space in the crescent shaped parking area to the left of the entrance road.

The store should be quite quiet, but please exercise caution when walking around, as the sight of so many cars that are all the same colour means that the general shopping public tend to stop looking for pedestrians. There is adequate paving behind the parking to stroll up and down.

I would also encourage everyone to pop into the store to buy any last minute supplies for the day. The store also has an excellent coffee shop, and toilets with baby changing facilities. There is also a BP Petrol Station on the entrance road to the store.

I will be handing out the tickets and parade passes to everyone at Morrisons and will be stationed on the pavement behind my FRP. Those of you who don't know me look for the FRP with white wheels and red mudflaps.
It is for you to find me and ensure you get your pass/ticket(s) by 0845hrs.

IMPORTANT - As well as giving you your tickets and paddock parking passes there may be an insurance indemnity form to complete and sign for which you do need your driving licence. This would be for those who intend to parade at lunchtime.

We will depart Morrisons at 0900 sharp. If you are unavoidably delayed, please phone me and I may make arrangements to leave your tickets on the gate (this is an emergency only option - do not use it as an excuse to be late just because you didn't want to get up early).

Maps for our route are here.
Please familiarise yourself with the route prior to the event, and if necessary, print a copy for the day.

There will be route-experienced owners spread throughout the convoy. They are:

Kate Umfreville (FRP)
Ben Addison (FRP - F2 spoiler)
Vas Lashley (FRP)
Graham Gillings (FRP)
John Deane (FRP)
Alan Mowberry (FRP)

If in doubt, follow one of them!

Please drive carefully and with consideration for other road users keeping within the speed limits. It is a convoy, not a race, so please keep the car ahead of you and the car behind you in sight.

When we arrive at Combe, we will be entering via the paddock/competitors entrance, this will be sign-posted. Please have your tickets ready, and your paddock pass clearly displayed. A degree of patience will be needed too as getting nearly 20 inside will be slow.

Once in through the gate please follow the FRP in front and any directions you are given, leaving your car neatly aligned next to your neighbouring FRP once on the stand.

If you are not parading you may care to park on the side of the stand so as to make it easier when it comes to releasing the FRPs for the lunchtime parade.

More about the parade later.
Really looking forward to this.

Information about the FRP parading part of this fab day.
If you are not parading you may care to park on the side of the stand so as to make it easier when it comes to releasing the FRPs for the lunchtime parade.

You are then free to enjoy the event, but please be back with your car by 1200 noon in preparation for the parade laps. Again, please exercise patience whilst waiting for us to be directed to move out for the parade - The parade laps do not take place till the morning's track sessions have cleared, and as was the case last year following an accident, the track sessions were late finishing - hence the parade was late starting. I cannot get you all moving until I am given a prompt from the parade director.

Parade lap - For those of you who haven't paraded before, this is not a race! We will be marshalled out onto the starting grid. Please ensure you have your headlights on. Please be patient with this process, as the marshals are having to co-ordinate a lot of cars on the day. The idea is that the group remains in formation around the circuit, and that you should not exceed 40 mph. Parading is very enjoyable to see and experience but this is not track time. Be aware you will very likely have no valid car insurance whilst out on track.
The parade lap will be led by
Dave and Dave and one other as the parading rows are usually three abreast

However, please be under no doubts, that if any of the track-side marshals see really silly behaviour (like overtaking through the group), then the entire group will be pulled off track, thus ending the fun and will probably result in us not being invited back again which after the good fortune of so many years this would be real bad.
Castle Combe has a strict noise limit but as this is a parade and not track time there should naturally be no blasting of exhaust noise but please be mindful of this.

Once the parade is complete we will leave the track and return to our paddock parking area. Again, please exercise patience during this process. On returning to the paddock parking, please park in an orderly manner as per when you arrived in the morning - we need to get everyone back on the stand!

The prize-giving usually takes place at 1600hrs at the Strawford Centre, so if you think you're in with a chance for an award, then it's worth attending. This would be if there is say best car on parade award from the event organisers.

The events will finish about 16:45 hrs, and any remaining people will leave at 17:00 hrs.
Really not long now :D/>

Also I'm selling a brand new set of Alcon of front discs still boxed and bubble wrapped.
These parts are for sale for 545 if anyones interested, no offers sold as one item not willing to split.
