JapShow 09 photos from MR2 Only Magazine Steve

Post by steve-mr2onlymag »

Back home after a top weekend at Santa Pod, Jap Show, gotta hand it to the ladies, Cher and Lisa for the organising, and all the fella/ladies that put everything together, this has to be the best Jap Show I've been to!

Was an absolute honour to be asked to judge the best of show, and show and shine awards, having spent many hours deliberating and watch many of you polishing and preparing your MR2's I had to go and re-think our prizes, and added in a 2nd and 3rd place :th: was tough picking the final 3, as there were some really well turned out entries, congrats to all that won!

Sorry I was'nt my usual mischevious drunken self, Sat night :no: Lisa was in agony with her back problem, bless her, me making her drive my mk2 Turbo down, and the fact our blow up matress sprung a leak was prob a bit too much, I was also suffering with my eyes, damn hayfever, I went to check in on Lisa in our tent just before midnight, lay down, and must of nodded off, and was barely drunk! I think it was around 5.30am when some of you guys retired to the tents!

Was quite chuffed how much interest my mk3 turbo generated on the stand today, lots of passers by having a look, commenting, some asking for a listen, I reckon there will be a few more mk3 turbos on the scene in the near future.

Finally thanks for the OC for hosting us on the stand again, making us feel very welcome, and thanks to all who bought back issues, subscribed, and generally came over just for a good old chat :th:

Anyway heres my photos from the weekend, sorry, I'm no VC, Tonylefrog or PeteJ, but I'm still getting to grips with the camera! :-o:


Feel free to link some on here and make comments, I'm shattered and off to bed

Full report and some photos will be in issue 17, MR2 Only Magazine

Great pics Steve. We had a brilliant weekend. The dodgems were so funny :roflmao:

Paff - I stopped on the way back about 2 miles from the pod because I saw a mk1 broken down. It turned out to be Snow-Tigger from TwoBrutal. Unfortunately he had siezed his engine. He's only had the car 2 weeks, poor bugger :sad:
It's good to be home :hug:
