Couldn't go Saturday but went on the spur of the moment this morning. After parking in a farmers field I then found a few Marlins lurking in the something interesting area. Hi to Keith Howell and two other roadsters and I was told a couple more who left earlier. Fantastic event really enjoyed the mix of cars and bikes in the paddock. Thanks for mentioning it.

I was helping there, saw a roadster and a Cabrio Saturday in the cherished vehicles area and according to one of our other helpers, who is a trials Marlin owner there were four there Sunday.

Just ask the stewards on the way in and they'll direct you, or just drive up to the gate at the top of the car park paddock near the top grandstand. I think :)

Some clubs actually organise to meet in the car park or cherished area, for example the Oxford TVR club. Would be good to see some Marlins grouped there, hopefully with me participating.

I was asked to park there by the Stewards - guess you have to have a 'Tarts car'!!!

I must admit mine did need a wash and it never looks cherished, used yes polished no !!:o

I would say mine looks more abused than cherished! I'm going to have to get the spray gun out. When it was stored in a friends garage something got on the paint and now it has micro-blisters all over it :(

Cars seen at Kop Hill. I wonder if the last one was the car that started the ball rolling? I wonder if Paul Moorhouse had had a 2nd choice for styling what the Roadster would have looked like?

I saw another, Sunday I think, green with white steel spoked wheels. Didn't have time to get a photo.
