I doubt they lost money, but it does sound like they didn't make anywhere near as much as they usually do...

Yes have to agree it was deffo quite than usual, the girl serving the beer said they were well down to previous years also the Italian car clubs were really p1ssed with the organisation and layout. Sounds like it should go back to normal hopefully, however it's starting to turn into a Porsche run day now they were everywhere.

Ah! But on the TV business news I hear of Marks and Spencers making a loss even though they make hundreds of millions in profit, this is how I meant it, a loss on previous years. :up

I didn't go this year for the first time in ages. It was the lack of a Club stand that convinced me not to go. These areas were wonderful meeting points and the highlight of many Club calendars. Car Clubs are the lifeblood of many events. I've posted something similar of Prescott's Facebook page in an endeavour to drive the point home. I hope the Club can post a similar response to the Organisers.
