Woke up at a stupid time of 4.30am. Showered, got ready and drove to Stanstead. 6am and I'm on a bus from the carpark to the terminal. 7.20 am and flight is delayed - Tom and I wonder why our plane has a fire engine and Ambulance next to it. hmm.

8.15 plane takes off for the hour trip to Frankfurt Hahn.

10.15am Hertz desk. We've got you a Hyundai i10.

10.25am We drive out of the airport in a 1.4 Golf.

11ish. Arrive in Frankfurt and find the show. Its crazy busy but we wander round and see as much as we can. Our jaws hit the floor at the girls on the Lancia stand

I haven't posted on here since that idiot posted up about watercooled brakes.

(Why do you have to press a button to fast reply?)

Was a good trip, that fabrizo dude needs a holiday or a "tickle me elmo"

Nice to go "home" even if it was for 2 hours. Its changed a bit.
