I have managed to sort out a few things on the Leon this week and tidy it up a bit, considering externally it's a bit of a shed lol!

Looking a little better now mind you.

I'll be promoting Pro Cut Vinyl as much as I can do at the show. Hopefully everything will arrive in time, as always things getting done at the last minute.

Does anyone who is attending the show want any MSC stickers or any other graphics making up?

I will have a selection of designs with me, but if anyone wants anything specific I can knock them up before the show.

procutvinyl.co.uk just about has our entire range now uploaded and available.

thanks
Kev

That should be fine Will, and as for helmet hire it says they do on the website:
Q: Is helmet hire available on the day or do I need to bring my own?
A: We advise you to bring your own British Standard-approved Motorsport helmet where possible, although there will be a limited number available for hire on the day (credit card deposit required). Helmets are mandatory for drivers and passengers and helmet straps must be securely done up.
Frank and will, just in case it wasn't clear in the forms, your briefing session is at 9am and you go out onto the track at 10am :)

Mine hasn't turned up:(

Postcode I believe is DE74 2RP according to donnington park website.
I sent yours in the second batch so it should arrive tomorrow :)

If you cant make it for 9 that should still be ok, but if you can it would be great to arrive before :)

ahh crap, sorry guys I may not be able to attend now.

Our family business is currently being sold and the change over was planned for tomorrow.

This looks like it's going to be delayed a few days, which means I'll now be working over the weekend grr

Quick tip for everyone! Meguiar's Ultimate wash and wax (£14ish from Halfrauds iirc) isn't as good as a proper wax but it's BLOOMIN close, beads the rain off nicely as well, especially after a couple of washes (Y).
