Arrived home a few hours ago and just got up after a bit of a sleep.  Came
back with 3 other cars, but the sat nav took me off route from them minutes
after leaving the ferry.

Eurofest was outstanding, it was great to catch up with familiar faces and
also meet new ones.

The time trials were my favourite part of the whole event and being part of
a convoy where the car blended in for once.  Judging the interiors was also
hugely rewarding.  I also operated the 'perfect' gullwing door on one of the
concourse cars.  This was the gentle, smooth and small amount of action
required to lift the handle, the quick smooth rise and the little resistance
to close with a virtually missable 'click' rather than a louder clunk as it
is closed with your little finger.

On the way home I took a detour to find a suitable 'surface' to push the
barrier on my cars top speed.  I reached a never before 128mph (170mph
speedo) before running out of space.  The GPS at lower speeds confirmed the
speedo to be accurate to within +/- 2mph.  I don't think there could have
been much capacity to go quicker, but I was impressed.  I didn't know that
it could go that quick.  It has a similar setup up to a 'Stage 1' with a not
so free-flow non standard partially stainless exhaust system running with
the original manifolds.

Lets hope there is another event in 2011 and from my point of view I would
like more performance driving brought into the schedule as the time trials
was immense fun.

Giants Causeway will always be memorable as it is where I proposed to my
girlfriend and she said yes!

Looking forward to Lotus
