On Saturday, participants set out on a choice of tours with the cars involved spanning nearly a centruy from a Theta (19xx) to a new Delta (2009). The shorter route took in the west Cotswolds area, with a planned stop at the Wetlands Wildfowl Trust site at Slimbridge. The longer tour preceded the Cotswolds with a drive down the Wye Valley with a choice of
stops at Tintern Abbey and Chepstow Castle.
Saturday's gala dinner was followed by a talk by Stuart Turner, who has an extensive CV in motorsport and motorsport management.
On Sunday, around 100 cars were on display in the hotel's grounds for the national rally, giving everyone a break from the road to socialise and chat around the static cars.
