Yea i went yesterday and today. It was a very good show and was not packed. There is a very nice selection of cars from Zonda to Spiker. Even the Tom Hartly had cars there. It was not packed so moving around was easy to do.
Now about the show, it was very entertaining and was presented by Clarkson, Tiff and hamster Hammond. You realy must look out for the flying car, yes a flying car:grin: Also there is a huge screen for the 3D film of the chopper chasing the real lie Lotus, fantastic:grin:
I have to say though the whole show seems to be very sponsor orientated with brand names thrown every were and looking in the brochure they are indeed all sponsers. But no nention of ferrari!!:cry3: And no ferrari on stage. But a car to look out for that is IMO better than the little V8 Vantage (remember i went to the launch last month, and never rated it) is the new Jaguar XK which will be in the same class but 15K cheeper and a whole lot better, and the top gear team agreed.
Clarkson was his usual scruffy self with a dirty potty mouth, not considering all the little children that were watching. He was using the C nut word and F cuk word:huh: After the show the mardy git went straight out the door and to his car while people were queing in the paddock area thinking that they would get an opportunity to get his autograph. But we saw him minutes after the main show leaving in the shadows, and the people on the bus going back to the car parks also saw him and waved but the mardy git dint even wave at them:cry: So the premium £30 tickets are a waist of time.
So summing up great show yea,very sponserd orientated. Although now i have another opinion of Claskson:(
I will post pictues when i have rezised them.

My sister went last year and she saw Clarkson being asked for his autograph. He kep saying "I'm far too busy" and walked off.

She also revised her opinion of him. :thumbsdow

If you go watch the filming of Top Gear, JC will happily sign autographs and chat as he gets bored.

I have been on the waiting list for two years :thumbsdow

A few of us went to the MPH show last year. As has been said it is entertaining and the "live show" was superb. Did they shoot the car at the Health & safety guys caravan?

All this said, it is advertised as being unique in that "car shows" have none of the live action. I bet this years show was not much different than last years?

Like the Motor Show thought I will probably only ever go to the MPH once every 5 years. The Classic car show at the NEC last weekend, well that is another thing. Will be going back there next year!!! :smiley:
