This was the culmination of an absolutely fantastic weekend of TVR related activity, with track action from the TVRCC Challenge Cup drivers (full results to follow), track day participation from 90 members on Saturday, demonstration drives by the time line of TVRs, the star cars and a host of others including M Series designer Mike Bigland piloting Martin Lilley around the circuit in Mike's own Taimar.
Off track people were entertained by the autotest, the donut ring, the startline challenge, the Dulford rolling road, the fun fair, the trader village and TVRs for as far as the eye could see.
Saturday night saw a fantastic party in the marquee where 550 members and enthusiasts wined and dined to the music of Revolution 9 and one non-member, guest of a member, was heard to say: "Although I have always liked TVRs, I have never fully understood what they are about. Now I do and will be joining on Monday before I buy my first TVR!".
The World Record Attempt saw one continuous line of 551 cars setting off from the parking area, through THAT tunnel (MP3 files will be available for download soon!) into the infield and then onto the bowl before heading back through the paddock and to the parking area. We have assembled all of the records that the Guinness regulations require and will be submitting the formal application in the next few days. As soon as we know whether we have the official World Record, or just the unofficial World Record, we will let you know.
Full results will appear in the next few days (after we have all recovered) but it goes without saying that we would like to thank everyone who helped make this the best TVR event of all time. Without the events team, the helpers who freely gave their time to help us with marshalling, to the BRSCC, to the Rockingham staff and of course to everyone of the nearly 2000 members who attended over the weekend, the event would not have been anywhere near as successful. So, to misquote AC/DC, "For those who have just rocked, we salute you!"
