    NSRA fun run thanks

    As I write this, we are still only on day 2 of the three day event, but I have had a really good time so far, even though someone ran into the back of my car on the way up.

    Before coming up here, I was warned by friends of poor roads leading to Great Yarmouth and a hellish trip beyond the M11 but, apart from the shunt, the journey was really enjoyable with good roads. OK, in the immediate vicinity of the town it does get a bit clogged.

    I have met some really great people and the quality of the cars is superb with a much higher percentage of cars of interest than recently at Billing.

    Today's seafront displays, during and after the Poker run, in both Gorleston and Gt Yarmouth, introduced the public to the wonders of hot rodding. I have never seen so many pictures being taken.

    So, with still a day to go, I will say a very big thank you to all involved with the organisation as well as the people of the town who also made us so welcome.

    The pictures can wait for someone who has taken more than I have.

    Hey I have it a miss this year because of exactly what you wrote about the rumour of the roads leading to Yarmouth. I used to enjoy billing have now backed down to just the hayride and the supernats (my favourite) I'm glad it sounds a good show and hopefully the weather has been good, well done nsra for sorting a new location maybe next year I'll be there

    Got back around 9:20pm after a thankfully incident free journey with just a few spots of rain.

    Overall, I enjoyed the event immensely. The huge collection of hotrods on the promenade at Gt Yarmouth and at Gorleston earlier on Saturday generated more camera clicks than I've ever seen.

    All in all, I thought the Fun was put back into the "Fun Run" with the enthusiasm and energy from all the organisers and helpers in the crew being one of the most important factors that brought that about.

    The first time at any venue is full of unknowns, but it was one of the most enjoyable I have attended.

    It was a challenging week and weekend but everyone's favourable comments have made it all worth while.
