Big Bang

It's just a week to go until the first weekend show of the year, Big Bang, at Santa Pod.

All the usual weekend fun, on the track there's VW only RWYB on Friday and Saturday, championship drag racing from the Super Mods. Outlaw Anglias, 8.50 & 9.50 bikes, junior dragsters and the 'DRC will be running their Daily Driver challenge.

Meanwhile, off track, there's Rust & Rat show on Saturday and the Show & Shine on Sunday as well as kids' entertainment, circus, Jet car, monster truck, fun fair etc.

As for evening entertainent, not so good. Friday offers a Take That tribute act in the marquee or a soft rock disco in the Fuelers Bar. Saturday night has an Indie Tribute band or a Family Disco.

Long term forecasts aren't brilliant, ranging from cloudy to showers so be prepared!

The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight will be making a fly past with a WWII Dakota on Sunday.

Tickets are £40 on the gate

Moving Day

For a car that's been off the road for 17 years, Howard's Beetle has racked up the miles in recent times.

Last weekend ginga and Howard moved it, again. This time from the Top Secret barn to ginga HQ in an effort to get it out to shows this year.

Hitched up & ready to go

Freshly landed in Bicester
Howard insisted on "cleaning the car" - whatever that means

In its new home

The theory is that having 2 projects side by side in the garage will encourage them to get on it, on the other hand ginga may prevail and they'll never be seen again!

Next step - fix the Caddy, d'oh!

Random Blah

First up, DannyBoy has set up a blog to chronicle the happenings at Turbonutta HQ. For a peak inside Danny's mind (be careful!) visit where you'll find things like:

ginga once installed a webcam in his garage but it died of boredom.

Next: Gaz, the Gemma's other 'alf and Phil Collins obsessive, has launched Affordable Video offering his skills for Web, corporate and music videos which is a good excuse to put this, from his FPSD alter ego, up again...

Lastly, Oxfordshire County Council now has an online Fix My Street page to report pot holes and other road damage. Visit and give em hell!
