Needed to move my old mini off the front garden, and with the brakes rusted up the easiest way was to get it going.

I replaced the clutch slave cylinder, as the old one went pop, checked the fluid levels, and squirted a little oil in the bores and, well, have a look at the video.

Brum brum…

On the spur of the moment I decided to drive to Cheddar Gorge, a 236 mile round trip. Managed to burn through nearly 2 tanks of fuel…

Seemed to be more minis than last year! Less trade though, and very little auto jumble.

Went for a nice little drive around, had some fin in a showy car park, laughed at some people trying to catch their dog and came home… Perfect.

As if by magic the leaky cooling system has sealed itself. It holds pressure for well over a week! I’m guessing a certain amount of crap from the system has filled up any holes and stopped up the leaks, can’t complain.

However, after the last show (Stanford Hall) the exhaust if knocking pretty badly.

Fun show, lots of minis to see and a well stocked auto jumble.

I tried to recored a walkthrough with my will P&S camera, rather shaky, but I think with a bit of weight hanging off the tripod mount it could be a good way to make a quick show tour video.

Brilliant airshow as usual, despite not being able to get anywhere near the flight line.
What really made this one was it being my first time seeing a Vulcan bomber flying in the tin.

You may also be able to tell, this was a show for watching rather than taking photos…

Having missed out on last years fun and games due to a dodgy belly I was looking forward to MITP this year, with a new company running it it turn out great, the arena fun and games was entertaining and made for a nice break between watching minis and various other cars going down the strip.

Yesterday I went to the great Gaydon museum, met up with a couple of guys from The Real Mini Company at their stand and general had a good time looking around, infact, I had such a nice time I went again today.

A super friendly atmosphere much like when MITP was at Cornbury Park.

Of course, something had to be bought, so Bertie now sports a rather nice 8 ball gear knob.

A very noisy bike.

Good fun was had in convoy from Beaconsfield to West Wycombe via some twisty back roads, then into the Hell Fire Caves.
