As I had to wait for the kids to finish school on the Friday before leaving and as last years journey on the Friday was horrendous I opted to stay in a nearby Premier Inn on the Friday night at Asby de la Zouch. Obviously not alone in my thinking as when we arrived there was Dave Aspinal's 2.5pi parked in the car park. Had a nice meal with the kids on Friday night and a nice big breakfast early on Saturday before the short drive up to Donnington. James' idea of a breakfast was a fry up and 7 blueberry muffins!, well I suppose he is a growing teenager.
Once arriving at Donnington we quickly put the tents up for the weekend and headed for the Festival. Lost Alice for most of the weekend though as she was off with her freinds Olivia and Grace.
James and I wandered around the show and I had a few laps of the Heritage Loop in the Flying Log and also a go at the autosolo. I was breifly the second fastesst Triuph in the auto sol, not bad for an underpowered Dolly 1500. Not sure where we ended up but we were 3rd fastest Triumph when we left the autoslo.
