Is there a location for us to reside in? am I aiming to park with other exo cars?
Thanks to Paul so far for trying to sort bits out, and the weather reports show 18-20 degrees.. should be a good day!
Maybe the event organiser has somewhere set aside?
It is true to say that MEV Ltd will not be present, we are booked for car hire in Croydon. Road Track Race will be present I believe. Parking of MEV cars together will come naturally. You will spot the others and park together, organised or not, MEV's are not all exo cars though as mentioned in your next post. Have great time everyone, sorry I cannot join you.
Today was an epic day with great weather and lots of track time.
I would like to thank young Harry (RTR) and my nephew Sam for replacing a burst coolant hose behind the header pipes that was too awkward for me to get at. If it wasn't for them my day would of ended early, but after replacing all the coolant that covered my tR1ke rear tyre, which incidentally is very bad for grip as I discovered turning into a corner and ended up doing a quick 360 degree spin, this was with Andy (wonderbadger) as a first time passenger in a tR1ke. He did get another go as soon as it was fixed along with quite a few others. I also saw Steve's turbo rocket for the first time, the exhaust and intercooler pipe work looks even bigger in the flesh...CRAZY car, I love it
Enjoyed my day out at Blyton, great weather, good track and it was good to meet some of the guys off here. Thanks especially to Kev for demonstrating on the first run how flickable the tR1ke is and just how quickly it can turn The second outing really did show how much fun the tR1ke is so hopefully if all goes to plan I'll be joining the Mev owning ranks next year. Hope Steve and passenger got home without eating too many insects on the M62!
On the way home I went a random cross-country route and found a very strange thing, a road in Norfolk with corners worthy of a kitcar, so at least I now have somewhere to play that's relatively local
Good day yesterday, even though I was only there an hour or so.
Not as young as I used to be so an 8 hour round trip knackered me out.
Any way nice to eventually meet a few other MEV owners.
Steve, your car is mental but I loved it and it sounds immense Unfortunately as I only had my fone with me for video only got a couple of short clip's, one of your Take Offs and another one of you coming by the spectator mound.
Another short clip, caught Steve coming back in off a lap but got some footage of the Mevabusa taking off and coming back round, again sounds awesome.
Started 22/6/11 Finished 13/8/12 487 Hours Build time. Now on the road, weather dependant.
To reiterate my post in general chat (I think I need to spend some more time learning where everything is on the forum!) thanks again to Kevin (slugshot) for taking me round the track in the TR1ke. It really is incredible... Now just to persuade Paul of the advertising power of having an employee using one of our vehicles as a daily driver... Company car/TR1ke do we reckon?!
I hope that you all had as good a day as I did! It was nice to see those of you who were there, I thought it was great to see what you guys have done with your cars and as always, great to see them being used as intended!

Anyone have a guess at numbers, roughly how many potential customers divided between all the demo cars? Were they offered lots of choices of hot laps regardless if they were interested in buying a kit or not? Or was it down to the manufacturers to use their data base to attract potential purchasers? Is it a show or just a kit based track day? Were the spectators predominately made up of friends of those demoing? What do you consider a fair price to pay for 2 hot laps, £5? Would it help appear more balanced if a set fee was agreed and charged for all demo rides? Either way it appeared to be a great success, missed that one so feedback would be appreciated.
