    I've been going to car shows ever since I got my licence (35yrs ago) & can't get enough of them - so much so, my family's started to get suspicious when we go for an innocent cruise to get some hours up on our current learner driver & run into them "by accident".

    Thinking we might all want to list what's coming up each week so we don't miss one?

    This week I'm off to the Greazefest at Sandown Racecourse :D

    Don't tell the missus ;)

    Now........who else gets to these things? Do you have favourite?

    Absolutely all kinds of hobby cars can participate in the competition, but this weekend is specifically for vintage cars. However the most of the people just use it as a good excuse to drive there with their hobby cars and not putting their cars to the competition but just to show them to other enthusiasts. If weather is good we might take one of our cars up there.
