Motorshow : 24th October 2002
Drove the Noble up to the Motorshow and had a long weekend at a country hotel in Devon FOC due to winning it in a charity ball.

Went to the Motorshow - made a beeline for the Noble Stand, and within 20 minutes had ordered a GTC! Just seeing the car meant I had to have one - as it's exactly what I was after - something to replace the Elise with but with significantly more poke. Alan Wallace said that there were at least 7 people in front of me (dam dam dam) and I was there at 9:30am on the first public day!

Ferrari was nice to see in the flesh - shame there was no-one to talk to about the rest of their range

Got back to the car to find I had left the lights on (5 hours later) and had a flat battery. Fortunately managed to convince two lads walking by to give us a push (that's what the spoiler is for!) and everything was fine.

Horrible run down to Devon from Birmingham - the rain was chucking it down. Car felt stable considering how "skittish" some tightly sprung cars can feel. Blasts around Devon country lanes were good fun - shame it just rained so much!
