Stoneleigh 2016

After doing Stoneleigh on a day trip last year I decided that overnighting was the best option.  With only 4 Westfields from the Dorset Area doing the trip we agreed to meet up with others from the Hampshire/Wiltshire/Costwolds Areas on the way. I met Colin at Sparkford at just before 7am and we headed off to Warminster to meet with Chris, Malcolm and Dale.  From Warminster we headed off to the services at Cirencester to meet up with the main group with one more added to the convoy at Stow-on-the-Wold.  After a spirited blat we arrived at Stoneleigh just before 11am and setup camp.

The show seemed much busier that last year in terms of visitors and Westfield seemed to have made a bigger effort with 3 cars of their stand (Zetec, Vtec and Ecoboost......very nice) plus a lot of spares and  special offers, overall there seemed to be fewer of the smaller niche stands, Omex didn't turn up (so I'll have to post Steve's ECU!) and CBS only offer a short term discount code and free postage for you to order online - I missed the ability to actually look at/measure their kit so didn't spend too much time or any money with them. 

Purchases were a pair of 55mm clear LED indicators for the rear lights, high intensity reversing and fog LED 55mm lights from SVC (about £150 the lot)

and an enamel Westfield bonnet badge (£10) I was severely tempted by the Toyo R888R offer (205/50R15 x 4 for £375) but managed to resist - the biblical rain on the journey home have may proved my decision to have been a good one.

and also led to me getting seam tape for the 1/2 hood
