Real shame that I only live a few miles away from Brighton, but booked on a Uni visit with our son on Saturday, so won't be able to go and watch. :cry:

Well I'll be looking out for everyone at the Crawley tech college half way point, as I will be on the West Sussex Councils Air Quality stand.

If anyone wants a top up of juice come over and see me as I've got a access token to the TWO new charge points installed just yards away at the Town Hall.

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2833&start=0

I suspect no one will want a charge as the whole idea is to use as little amount of power as possible, but the option is available for anyone be it a competitor or spectator who wants to come along and watch the event, I'll be there from around 8am.

Looking forward to seeing all the new vehicles coming through the check point,

Whey hey, well that was an interesting day/morning, lots of expensive metal/plastic driving about 8)

Good to see a fair few regulars, waves at Karl, Kevin and Russ :wink: there may have been more of you there :?: I expect all the competitors are now enjoying their black tie munchies now :mrgreen:

Nothing much on the yocal news about it bit on BBC News24, and South Today appeared to get cancelled due to F1 over run possibley ??

Just up loading the pics now.

Hi Chris - I've posted a couple of piccies on my c5alive forum;
http://c5alive.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=1530.0

..it was quite an impressive display of vehicles and loads of media bods there, not sure where all the filming went then ?

Must admit I was quite pleasantly surprised at the amount of attention my c5 attracted, I'd have come along in a nicer one if I'd known :P

Fair amount of media there but naff all on the telly from what I could see, BBC ran a pre-recorded VT and there was a very very short bit from brighton, maybe there will be more after its hit the edit suites on tomorrows news :?
