    Brooklands New Year's Day Gathering

    Apologies as this is just a placeholder for the event, which I attended with the Green Machine today. Reason being, I dusted off my trusty Commiecam (had to fit a new battery for the light meter) and loaded up with 35mm film for a change. So it will be a couple of weeks before I have pictures to share, but I just wanted to give a shout to Mark (Nova Newbie), Gary (who bought the widened Nova with the Sam Cobley chassis off of ebay recently) and Dominic and Eddie from Australia. Dominic has a Purvis Eureka back home and is also a big Alfa Romeo enthusiast, and had come to Brooklands to see some of the latter. Apparently he has been following my Green Machine build for some time but never expected to see the car for real. Happy to oblige mate

    Brooklands were expecting over 1,000 cars today, and in spite of the gloomy forecast, I reckon they hit that target!

    Hopefully Mark can add a few snaps to liven up this thread, but in the meantime here is a blank page!

    Great video. So many lovely cars ....
    I was out walking my dog yesterday when someone from FB sent me a message saying they were there, and saw a stunning green nova 👍

    Amazing - the whole video only covers the banking and start/finish straight, so I guess about 50% of the total attendance!

    I do appear briefly in the time-lapse video posted yesterday, coming in though the members fast track entrance (canopy open, obviously)

    Hi,

    These are the only photos I took from the day!

    The Nova really stood out! We were talking next to the car for about
    half hour then looked around and everything looked bland and grey.

    Lauren was directed to the supercar section upon arrival and didn't want to.
    Got a much more prominent position in the centre. Amongst the Metros etc it struck me how striking
    a Nova would have looked on the street in the 80s.

    One comment to me was 'you'll never see another one again'-
    I then went home and looked at mine in the garage!:

    Looks like a great day out - and the weather was kind. And I'm sure the Green Machine was one of the stars of the show.
