    I went too, even on trade day very busy at the F'car display!

    There is a 360CS is Scuderia with Lexan windows! The colour is certainly "bright" but looks great. Otherwise a full selection of 288, F40, F50 & Enzo together with classic's & F1's.

    Plenty of Bling crap in some area's, Engineering section v.good, but only on Thurs/Fri.

    To anyone that goes, checkout the F cars first!!!!

    Dale,

    how long did it take you to go round the exhibition? I am trying to plan my time for Saturday as I need to be back in London for 6pm. I am wandering what time to leave ! I sure hope it's not raining so I can have a good blast there and back !

    Cheers

    Arrived 9.15am left about 1.30.

    No lunch, and about 75% of that was in the Engineering Exhib' thats only there Thursday/Friday. Depends on how long you want to look a alloy wheels......... etc. I would expect 3hrs should do it but the crowds could slow you down on Sat', especially in the F'car area.

    Have fun.

    Thanks Dale and Barnard. I guess 3 hrs will be enough. I may set off a little later then !
