Spent last weekend in the company of 24 Aston Martin engineers at the 24hr mountain bike race, Mountain Mayhem. Teams and individuals battled it out to complete the most laps of an off road course in 24 hrs. I was supposed to be riding but my shoulder is still knackered. A mate used to work for them and is invited back each year. They had a large stand and space for all the tents. Plus 3 rather nice cars parked out front. Here's 2... More pics to follow.

Nice cars, but did they win?
Kind of odd looking at the front of an Aston now that Ford have "borrowed" the grille.

Odd that I nearly posted EXACTLY the same comment earlier!  I'm guessing the 10% of Aston that Ford still own is the grille shop! Smile

Yeah, I s'pose I'd force myself to drive one, you know, if somebody gave me one for free. Laughing

My wife's company make all the carbon fibre body bits .... so when you look at the price tag remember that most of it is made by hairy monkeys in a shed on the Isle of Wight!! Actually I had a sneaky look around the factory at the weekend and it is fun spotting the cars from the carbon shells ... they also make for Porsche, Ferrari, Jag and Rolls Royce.

You wouldn't believe how many disciplinaries she does for people (a) making bits for their mopeds or (b) Selling stuff on ebay!
