A cracking day out with the FOG crew again - and so good to be able to put faces to names.

Well done Ian on organising a cracking event - just a shame that so many people that said they would come, didn't ...

Here are some of our pics ...

Thanks Ian for managing to get enough of us together and hearing everyone shouting from the stands that you needed to finish the F off :wink:
Image
Hopefully others will have better shots of that than me, I just didn't have the right equipment :roll:

It was also the first time that I had to remember carefully where I'd parked....
Image
Although at least I could tell it was my car as my car keys fitted it *cough* wasn't going to name names but Ian wasn't having a good day*cough*

Fronties do also appear in other colours, apparently (all be it with different roof ornaments)...
Image

And there were even enough of us to cause a traffic jam..

:party:

Wasnt it a weekend. Dunno if its withdrawal, food poisoning or just a bug, but now I'm dizzy, upchucking and feel like I had one of Dans curries :oops:

Top day, top people.

Bobbns did a great job in sorting us out. The camp site was definately a bit posher than the usual bog we get lanning. Rockingham was spectacular, the racing was propper impresive too.

I can struggle with new names and faces at a meet, this was much bigger so apologies to any I didnt talk to, or any I forget, just soo much overload.

In all super day, thanks to everyone, even our charity dancers last night :butt:

The only thing I will say about last night is this...
Image

and that a lot of light was needed...
Image

Course the whole album can be found here....

Anyways, onto the main event....

A fair few turned up!
Image

Some cleaned their cars before hand
Image

Image

Image

Some didn't
Image

Image

Some brought only half a car!
Image

There was some motorsport going on
Image

Image

But we were far more interested in the 'show and tell' going on in the car park...
Image

Image

Pre-event brief
Image

Waiting for the off
Image

Image

After the lap....
Give me a F
Image

Give me an O
Image

Give me a G
Image

And what does it spell????
Image
Image

Passed 5/6 Foggers on the M6 heading for home, and arrived back safe and sound following an excellent weekend. Big thanks to all involved, looking forward to seeing the rest of the footage from the weekend!

What a cracking event that was - I'm shattered.

Well done "Sir Bobbinsjob" in coming up with the idea and running with it - you must be well chuffed and so you should be :clap:

Ok, so not as many turned up as said they would, but even so, the Frontera Owners Group put on a jolly good show.

Some piccies:

Strange goings on at the camp site Saturday day evening:

Image

With illumination provided by Fronteras:

Image

Sunday morning dawned early

Image

with (my) breakfast provided by Alex

Image

Rockingham Raceway - VIP parking :wink:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Motor racing going on all day

Image

The participants make their way to the circuit

Image

Lining up at the end of the pits

Image

Turn 3

Image

Returning to the paddock

Image

the closing speech, to much jubilation

Image

Rockingham raceway from the stands

Image

Image

Alex has been playing with his toy cars again

Foggers:

It truly was a memorable day.
