I can`t believe this years Fairthorpe Gathering is here already, this Sunday Fairthorpes from all parts of the country will be heading along to the event at the Museum of Berkshire Aviation.
Full details are in the post below, I have fingers crossed for some dry weather and I will post a link to the local weather shortly.
All owners are welcome with or with out your Fairthorpe and you are also welcome if you just have a passing interest in our cars.

Fairthorpe Gathering now four weeks away.

This years Fairthorpe Gathering is now only four weeks away and I`m sure a number of Fairthorpe owners are busy getting their cars ready to join in on the day, there are several cars that have not previously been along to the event that are joining in this year, anyone is welcome even if you are not a Fairthorpe owner.
The Gathering is on August 4th at the Museum of Berkshire Aviation. Here is a link to their website which has directions on how to find the museum.

The gates will be open from 10am, the museum has a cafeteria and those attending the Gathering will be entitled to a complimentary tea or coffee.
Sarah will be supplying the usual selection of cakes/rolls and soft drinks so make sure you make a note on your calendar to come along.
This year there are a pair of VERY nice trophies up for grab, the Frank Collins memorial Trophy for the best Fairthorpe as voted by those present at the event and the John Green Trophy for the furthest travelled Fairthorpe on the day, both trophies will be held for one year and the recipients will receive small replicas trophies to keep. Anyone requiring more information can email me at  kartman.nascar24@btinternet.com ..........Martin
