On the Saturday though I headed off to the Barrow Hill Live Event a sort of open weekend combined with a model show.
The main reason for me going was the chance to grab a shot or two of the two 86/7's stored there plus the GIF 37's after there return from Spain, although I saw a couple on their way to Spain they were always tucked away in Bescot yard so I never got a chance to photograph them.
Plenty of people attended the event probably encouraged to come out due to the good weather.
