This is organised by the London so Heathrow MVT gang each year.
http://www.fbhp.org.uk/walksandtalks/forthcoming/single-listing-events.html.php?s=2014-05-11-chestnut-sunday

For displaying vehicles there is a BBQ and camping stay over, the night before being offered with the possibility of
a night drive trying to miss the sleeping deer - it was tried last year with NV last year - not a great success ....

Although a small show it seems like a very large local crowd, line both sides of the long drive running through the park
to watch and cheer so a very family friendly half day out.

As a side distraction :
The history to the Park is quite interesting (Richmond Park off A3) is worth a look.

A few of the USA supreme leaders lived in local (posh) homes and Brooklands Motor Musuem has all the bouncing
bomb history and a Wellington Bomber on show.

If I still have got enough parts to make a 101 I'd like to come although it would be all black, not in military colours, does that matter? Steve

Normally they have a camp out on the night before with a low key BBQ.

Just to say that this is on this weekend.

For those staying or around there is a £6ph BBQ at 1800 tonight, otherwize Kevin will
look forward to seeing all in the morning.
The local road / park will close the road before the event at 11am ish -maybe earlier - just
guessing.
