Arguable... but so far it's the biggest e90post meeting in recorded history.

nope !
UK tainted photo record is not admissible, has one sneaked-e46
1. first rule of law, ie. bad evidence
e90post Board of Review approved the Motion to have presented tainted evidence be removed and not use for any legal arguments.


...mind if I asked when are we going to see the next self-proclaim biggest meet?

..you know this planet is not as big as we once knew.

The music track I've chosen is "Pearls Girl" by Underworld.
They are as British as they come (from Romford!) & they've got a good history behind them- they wrote "Born Slippy", which was used in the film Trainspotting.

I'm afraid you will need broadband to download this:
(there has been some problems downloading stuff from member sites, but please keep trying if it doesn't work first go)

Lower-res: 35Mb WMV file HERE (right-click & Save target as...)

Higher-res: 70Mb WMV file HERE (right-click & Save target as...)


Sorry for the delay in getting this ready, but I hope it was worth it.

I've tried to cover any reg plates, especially when videoing during the convoy down to Donington.

Let me know what you think, please.

All the best.

Viv
Excellent UK gang! I am very impressed of the effort you guys had put in on the photos and video. You guys should be proud of yourself

Can't wait to see more photos and nice videos from future UK meets

For sure it is the most creative E90 meet ever

Our next meet will probably be sometime over this summer.
We'll get some independent adjudicators for verification purposes ok!

Thanks RD Sport!
Glad you enjoyed the photos & the video.
We had such a great day on our meet, it's a shame we can't capture how great we all felt & how sad it was to say goodbye at the end of that day.

Based on our first meet experience, I think we're all expecting the next one to be even better!

Hope your next Hong Kong meet is as enjoyable, RD.

All the best.

There's around 20minutes of footage recorded by Richard and some footage by Jay.
If anyone else has anything from the day, then please let me know.

I'll stick everything onto a DVD & post a copy out to the UK members at the meet who want it, ok Paul.

Cheers.

Viv -

Just got a chance to download/look at the video. I can tell that a lot of work was done to put this into a production. Super job! My [heartfelt] thanks to you, Richard and everyone else who took pictures.

Awesome!!!

Thanks for the info, London320d. I figured it had to do with the speed cameras, just never heard that name before.

Ironicly it was invented by a dutch rally driver Maurice Gatsonides. He even won the Monte Carlo rally in '53, but then turned to the dark side.
And thank you too, OilBurner.

That's one thing about the U.S. system: the cops play "fair." They try to catch us by lurking and hiding, hoping to catch us in the act - no cameras! And, we drivers "play" by warning each other as to where the cops are parked/staked out. It is almost a game - kind of like tag. Gives new meaning to the word "cooperation." Most of the time, at least outside of small towns, I think the cops are genuinely more interested in safe driving than revenue.

I don't like cameras. Where's the challenge for the cops/drivers? Cameras - phooey. They just ain't no fun!

Thanks again for the edjumacation.

Marilyn

Thanks Marilyn- coming from you, that means a great deal!
I'm glad you enjoyed it.

I enjoyed making the video almost as much as taking part in the meet itself!

All the best.

Sounds like a plan. Do you want a blank sending or a paypal payment for the disc/your time?

No problem Paul.
Just PM your address & I'll post out a DVD next week with as much meet stuff as I can find.

I've got Paul (beauforty), Hiten (Hitman999) & Jay's (jhbodle) address already.

If any of you have any photos or video that I don't have, or hasn't been posted on the forum, then please could you PM me so I can get it from you & put it on the DVD.

Cheers.

Viv
