We have this evening just launched a 7 day competion over on our facebook pages to win 2 one day tickets for the event if you'd like to go over to the site and enter by liking, unfortunately we aren't able to run the competion on here as we need to link the likes to facebook site and I don't believe that's possible, sorry.
Details of the usual RSSOC members discounts are available over in the members discount section as usual, see here, please don't share the code outside RSSOC members as they are club specific this year.

We've been sent an advance preview of the Show Guide thought you might like a look at it to plan your visit

Advanced discounted entry tickets available until midnight Thursday 7th November and don't forget to pre book parking, the Airport NCP car park 5 offer @ £9 a day 8am till 7:30pm was still valid last night when I checked or park and ride at one of the railway stations close by as I did one year, all 3 days cost me less than a tenner for the train, fair saving at the time as it was £12 only on site, no pre booked discounts in those days and it wasn't that long ago.

Well, the show went well for ourselves as club with plenty of people dropping by to chat, buy stuff and join the club, we even had one of the guys from Angelwax drop by to see what he could do with the paint on Barbara Ganney's nice SS1 as it wasn't looking as pristine as a few years back, results he achieved (and the crowd behind us he pulled whilst doing it) with a quick buff using their products was remarkable, Ian and Barbara have now purchased the necessary so we look forward to a very shiny SS1 at the next event.

We were priviledged to have the prototype Sabra on the stand which certainly drew loads of attention by the show's visitors, I spotted this car having never seen it before at Scimfest and thought thats just got to be on our NEC stand.

Phil Dearnley & Dawn brought their freshly restored coupe which looked fantastic even though its paint was waiting to be detailed (looked great to me) the chaps who sprayed it visited Saturday and I had a chat when they revealed that finish was straight from the gun, no flatting done yet, wow

A big thanks from the club to all those showing their cars as well as the behind the scenes team without whon these events just wouldn't be possible, me, I just organised the stand tickets and cars, arrived Thursday and our well oiled machine just made it happen as usual, it was just a shame that we had a long thin stand with a ruddy great 1m+ column sticking into it half way down the length, hope the Restoration Show stand is a better shape

Note, all photos except the first taken before show opening

Nice to see the ROC, Bond Bug and our stands together. Had a great day on Saturday. Nice to speak to Ian and Barbara on our stand and sit with Bruce on the Bug stand with his car which we have spent a good few hours sorting over the last year.

It was great to have a good chat with you Mike and many others who stopped to look at the cars. Yes Barbaras paintwork was looking tired as we had taken our eye off the ball trying to get the GTC finished. It should have been on the stand originally, but had to pull out and the SS1 was a late substitute.
Angelwax were great in coming over to look at the car to start with. ( I dont think any other finish product suppliers would have put themselves out). Not only did he try earlier, but came back as he wasnt happy that he couldnt initially help. After talking to him and establishing what look and level of durability Barbara wanted for her car, she relieved my credit card of many beer tokens to get the SS1 back to how it looked in the past. It was a lot cheaper than a re-spray, but it will probally need one further down the line. On the plus side , it was great driving it to the NEC and home. A round trip of 180 miles and never missed a beat.
